Google adds Instant Preview to mobile version of search page

If recent attempts to revamp your mobile Google experience (like adding the open now and interactive weather) haven't gotten you hooked, maybe the Instant Preview function that shows you snapshots of your search results so you can find what you want more quickly will do. It was just announced this morning and it works just as advertised: search for something, click the magnifying glass next to the result and flip through thumbnails til you find something that you like. Click past the break for a video demo of the new function.



There's really not much more to say here, but this function, as cool as it is on a laptop or desktop, truly enhances your experience on a mobile phone by allowing you to utilize the smaller screen real estate efficiently, type in a few keywords and find relevant content in under 30 seconds. None of these changes are super major, but they add up and demonstrate Google's comittment to create a better mobile experience. 

Instant Previews are now available for Android 2.2 and above in 38 languages.
