Google Unveils New Google Search UI For Tablets
Google is now greeting everyone with a brand new interface for tablet users as mentioned on the Google Mobile Blog. To sum everything up in short, search just got bigger. This ultimately means that everything is easier to touch, which means everything should be easier to use. The new look isn’t anything revolutionary but should be a welcome use of a roomy-screened tablet display. The Google Mobile Blog mentions the following:
We’ve simplified the layout of search results pages and increased the size of page contents like text, buttons and other touch targets to make it faster and easier to browse and interact with search results in portrait or landscape view.
The search button located below the search box provides quick access to specific types of results like Images, Videos, Places, Shopping and more. Just tap to open the search menu and select an option to see results in one category.
For image results, we focused on improvements that enhance the viewing experience such as enlarged image previews, continuous scroll, and faster loading of image thumbnails.
Google has created larger image previews, faster loading thumbnails, and has a new continuous scroll feature. The new search page will be coming out in the next few days and can be viewed on devices that are running Android 3.1+ (Honeycomb) and on the iPad in 36 different languages.
If you are one of the many with a tablet of your own, give it a go and let us know what you think!
