Google has removed its Google instant search option that it had launched in 2010
After launching Google Instant (Search as you type) — Google’s method of showing search results as you type them — several years ago, Google has removed the feature from search effective today.
Google instant which was a method of showing results while you type them, is removed by google after it’s implementation back in 2010 which was a big update in the Internet world that time. This is done to bring a new inline search in mobile devices.
Now as the people use mobile to search and 50% of Google searches being on mobile, Google is trying to bring the inline search.
A Google’s spokesperson told
We launched Google Instant back in 2010 with the goal to provide users with the information they need as quickly as possible, even as they typed their searches on desktop devices. Since then, many more of our searches happen on mobile, with very different input and interaction and screen constraints. With this in mind, we have decided to remove Google Instant, so we can focus on ways to make Search even faster and more fluid on all devices.
In new inline search option you will only see search suggestions and then be able to click on those suggestions to see the results. There will be no loading of page will take place until you click on the suggestion.
This update will make search results experience very good in mobile devices.
