Minutes ago Google published a post to their Mobile Blog detailing an update to the Search app for Android devices. For whatever reason, the post has since been pulled, but not before Phandroid reader and screen-cap ninja Art preserved a copy to share with the rest of us. The new Google Search app features an updated interface simplified for use and more in line stylistically with Android Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Search suggestions are now grouped by type — web searches appearing first — and country-specific suggestions and results are now offered depending on location. You can delete history items with a long press or edit them before searching by tapping the arrow next to the item in the drop-down.
The update will be available for handsets running Android 2.2 or later, and should be hitting the Market any minute now. When it does, we will update this post with a link.
