You have to hand it to Google. They don’t hold back when it comes to sharing the technologies they develop for the desktop web with their mobile counterparts. The latest search element to find its way to mobile is Google’s Instant Preview. If you have searched Google on a desktop recently, you most likely have flirted with the ability to quickly pop open a webpage preview without leaving the search results page. To use Instant Preview on mobile, simply tap the magnifying glass icon next to any search result.
Instant Preview is available on Android 2.2+ smartphones and currently supports 38 languages.
I tried it on my samsung vibrant running 2.2 froyo and its not that bad…good job google. Keep on innovating
Noticed that earlier. Now it know what it is
Figured this was comin. I like it. Good work you Googs.
Android 2.2 and up. Glad I am on AOSP Android 2.3 on my Sprint HTC Hero.
I would argue this sliding card interface for the previews is better executed than the full desktop version. Nicely done, Google.
Great feature. Seems a bit clunky at the moment and slow to scroll through the images … but great new feature.
At first i didn’t like it. But now after getting used to it, it’s a good feature.
