The search engine giant, Google’s latest update for Android allows users to run a quick search even without access to the internet.
Using Google’s streamlined search results, the feature will not use extra data or drain your battery.
“Even if your search fails, Google will now deliver your results as soon as a connection is available—so you can keep searching with a single tap,” reads a statement on Google’s blog.
The offline feature would be especially useful for Pakistani users who often have to deal with slow, unreliable data connections.
“So the next time you lose service, feel free to queue up your searches, put your phone away and carry on with your day. The Google app will work behind-the-scenes to detect when a connection is available again and deliver your search results once completed,” the statement added.
This means that users don’t have to worry about constantly checking their phones for a stable connection to run the search again. The app will pick up data signals automatically and provide results as soon as a connection is available.
