Google is fast behind the steps that Microsoft took when it launched Windows 8 and Google’s Search app has been optimized for touch screen tablets for both Android iOS as well as Blackberry OS. Google’s search app is now available on the Windows 8 store.
Among the app’s features include Google Drive, Picasa and Co. as well as other Google services, plus the app is adapted for UI such as voice or touch input. It also has similar features with that of the beta version of Mozilla Aurora where other webpages of interest are shown in an instant preview type of formation once you open a new browser aside from the first one, which shows you the huge search box.
Other Google services that’s included in the instant preview feature of the Google app are Gmail, Google Voice, Google Docs, Google+, Google Maps, Google Drive, and YouTube. Microsoft’s launch date for the fully functional Windows 8 will be this coming Friday, October the 26th, but the beta version of Windows 8 has been out for a couple of months (mostly tested on desktop PCs). A lot of tablet-loving users are going to be thrilled by this new app from Google, especially since it will allow them to interface with it through touch as well as voice commands and not to mention gain access to the universal services of Google also.
