Shortcuts in Search. Google rolls out Tappable Shortcuts

Postby karthikaqpt Wed Mar 22, 2017 8:30 am

Starting today in the U.S., Google is introducing tappable shortcuts on the Google app for Android and iOS and on the mobile web that give you easy access to many tools and the ability to explore deeper within topics you care about.

Getting up-to-the-minute info is as easy as a single tap. With shortcuts right on the home screen, you now have access to in-depth experiences across sports, eat & drink, entertainment and weather

Android users will find many useful shortcuts like—translate, nearby attractions, flights, hotels, internet speed test, currency converter, and more. And , if you’re looking for fun, there are shortcuts like tic-tac-toe, roll a die, animal sounds, solitaire, and " I'm feeling curious".

You can tap into news, trailers and reviews that are relevant for you or swipe through listings to catch up on your favorite show.

Similarly on sports, whether you love basketball, hockey or football, now you don’t need to type anything when you want the latest scores. Just tap into game times, scores and team news.

Tap the weather shortcut and be ready for the day before you walk out the door. You’ll have access to updated information every time you tap—from hourly sky conditions and chance of rain, severe weather alerts, a detailed 10-day forecast, and more.
