After redesigning how the Search app looks and functions on your smartphone, making it easier to navigate the Search app compared to before, Google has announced a new feature coming to mobile Search. With the latest update, you will no longer need to tap to see the next page of results. Instead, you can just keep scrolling, and scrolling, and scrolling until you find the result that you are looking for.

This is similar to what we see on a lot of web pages already, as more results will continue to load after you reach the bottom of the page. Perhaps the best part of this is that you won’t simply be greeted with what looks like a “link farm” as different results will be highlighted, based on the search term.

While you can often find what you’re looking for in the first few results, sometimes you want to keep looking. In fact, most people who want additional information tend to browse up to four pages of search results. With this update, people can now seamlessly do this, browsing through many different results, before needing to click the “See more” button.

The update is beginning to roll out “for most English searches on mobile in the U.S.” The blog post does not mention whether Google plans to bring this functionality to more countries, languages, or regions. And since this is a “gradual rollout” it might take some time before it appears on your devices.
