Google Real Time Search on Android


Yesterday Google announced real time search results, being rolled out to Google accounts in stages – I read.

“Users can now see live results from Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and a host of other new sources when performing a search. The feature just went live today and it is still being rolled out to Google accounts. The new search is also reported to be available on iPhone and Android…”

I’m not seeing it on my desktop just yet but I have tested and played with it on my Droid. I just did a regular Google search for Android then went to “+Options” on the right and clicked “Updates.”

Here is what I see:


Every couple seconds a new result rolls in. Pretty nifty, eh?
