After what seemed like forever, Google has finally decided to improve the search functions on BlackBerry 6.0 devices after making them available for its Android and iOS counterparts a long time ago – despite BlackBerry 6 OS having a WebKit browser as well. Starting today, BlackBerry users with devices running BlackBerry 6 OS will be able to enjoy the improved features of Google search.
The latest update to the search engine brings to the BlackBerry: faster searches with autocomplete and history queries that appear beneath the search box as users type, web search refinements that allow users to sort results according to type (i.e. images, videos, news, real-time results and more). BlackBerry users will also have access to an improved image search that lets them easily preview images. Lastly, they will also get a local search feature that allows them to browse restaurants, shops and other popular business categories in the area.
If you’ve got a BlackBerry 6.0 device, just head over to www.google.com to experience the new changes (clear your cache if it isn’t updated).
