Features of the Google Go App

Google Go App- Features

The wonderful features of this app are as follows:

  • You can explore the latest trending topics just by tapping Search.
  • Easily access your favorite apps and websites, as well as images, videos and information on the things you care about – all from Google Go.
  • Save time by tapping your way through trending queries and topics, or by using your voice to say what you’re looking for.
  • Set a second language to switch your search results to or from at any time.
  • Find the perfect greetings to share with loved ones. Tap on “Images” or “GIFs” to find the best photos and animated greetings to liven up your chats.
  • The app reduces the amount of data needed to display search results by 40 percent.

So you needn’t type out what you’re searching for, but simply tap through trending casino topics or slot related queries or even opt for the voice function to say what you’re looking for. Google Go will also pull up photos and animated images if you tap on the “Images” or “GIFs” tabs, which you can send to others.

There is also a language “chip”, which is a one-tap button available at the bottom of the search results that helps you switch from default English results to the ones in your preferred additional language.

Google Go – The Data usage and lite version

Google Go App- The perfect lite weight search app

In addition to the additional language support, the Google Go app has a Data Usage feature that, once enabled, helps you to load a lighter version of webpages using Google’s Weblight project. This app generates search results in a couple of milliseconds. Also has the reduced impact on memory after switching from the original Google app to Google Go. While the flagship app consumed over 330MB memory on average in three-hour span in a test on Oreo-running smartphone, the lightweight Go version used merely 32MB in the same time frame and on the same device.

As Google Go is primarily targeting the users who are new to the Internet, it has a simple, “tap-first” interface that doesn’t require much typing on the screen. There is a unified screen that welcomes you with major Google services such as Search and Voice search. There is a search bar near the bottom of the screen, with a dedicated button for voice search. Tapping on the search bar shows what’s all in trend at the moment. This means that you don’t need to type any trending topic, and just a tap takes you to its Web results.

Google Go- Shortcuts to websites

If you don’t want to access any Google services, Google Go also has shortcuts of popular websites, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Once again, these shortcuts take you to the sites directly from the Google Go app or open the third-party apps if they’re installed on your smartphone. You can also replace these shortcuts with your favourite sites, just like you can change the homepage items in Chrome browser. Additionally, the app lists categories such as Social, Entertainment, Sports, News, and Shopping; each of which has different sites. You can also customise the experience a bit by adding your custom app background.

All in all, Google Go is a must-have app for all first-time smartphone users. It neither consumes a lot of storage space nor spends a large amount of data. Also the app offers a one-stop solution to search online as well as access various Google services and sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with few taps on the screen without typing much through a virtual keyboard. The available additional language support also brings the Web world closer to all non-English speaking mobile users.
