Google enabling Play Store installs from within search results

Google Now on Tap

Google seems to be hard at work rolling out and testing features to kick off the new year. This one is again centered around search on mobile and seems to be specific to searches made within the Google app.

You are no doubt accustomed to seeing apps appear with an install button within the Google app when searching for them by name, but Google is now allowing users to install the app directly from the Google app via a simple pop up rather than pulling you out to the Play Store. For images of the new functionality hit the source link below.

We haven’t seen this on our devices yet, but unlike the search options we saw last week, this one seems like it should unquestionably be rolled out to all users in time.

While Google is busy plugging away on updates to the Google app is there anything else you would like to see changed?
