Google Instant Roll Out Live on iPhone

Share:

Google Instant has made searches on Google faster as results appear immediately below your query. This feature has started to go live in the US and Canada

Once the feature is live you will need to enable Instant on/off on the Google homepage. Let us know if you’re getting Instant on your iPhone! I’m waiting for the Google gods to bless my iPhone 4 so I can save 2-4 seconds on my searches.

If you have Google Instant, this is what you should see:

This is Google Instant on an iPhone

Here’s a video demo:

    ive had this since i bought my iphone
    i think?

    i definitely have it now and ive had it for many weeks

  • Demetri111

    I’ve had it since I obtained my iPhone4 in aug. I figured that’s just how it was supposed to work.

  • The screenshot is not of google instant FYI, so those of you that think you have it, probably dont.

  • Guest

    the screenshot is just the history, im aware of that

    when i type something into google i get a list of possible results below history…
    if thats instant, then ive had instant since i bought the phone in august

    I’m starting to lose interest in this site. can you raise the bar on your posts a little? First a whole article on the new volume bar knob and how pretty it looks then this poorly written story on something everyone has been aware of for months or possibly a new feature that failed to be communicated with the wrong screenshot. I still don’t know which of the two is the case.

    Come on guys you can do better…

  • suckaaaaa!!

    I agree, but not without saying that you guys/girls do incredible work and your site is the first one I visit in the morning even before tsn.ca. I think icomment4’s comments are true but a little harsh. We understand that sometimes there’s nothing to talk about but…lol

  • Dream

    Blah blah blah!!!

    It’s old news apparently!

  • The screenshot indicates that my iPhone 4 is waiting for Google Instant.

    Raise the bar on posts? What would be examples of that?

    You can’t please everybody in this world. All sites have articles that don’t make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. 😉

    here’s the screen shot you should have posted:

    http://www.9to5mac.com/33948/google-instant-starts-to-hit-ios

    also rather than get all defensives i’d take the suggestions from my readers seriously and try to improve the content. it’s true that some days there’s nothing to talk about so instead of turning into a cnn style of constant breaking news: “puppy got lost”, I’d say nothing and keep my bar high for when something is worth reporting on.

    yes i see now
    i was having trouble understanding the difference until i watched the video at that link
    i realize now that predictive search and instant are almost exactly the same thing
    thats why i thought my phone was already doing it

  • Sadly in the iPhone world there isnt headline bangers every day like iOS updates and new apps, or the latest iPhone related scandals, but at least these guys are great at keeping constant updates and new articles.
    Even your local news broadcast has stories that will not be headliners, but you still need news to keep it fresh ^_~. These guys are doing a pretty good job.

    icomment4 i would love to see your website with excellent news day after day. please post a link ok?

  • if he would have posted that there would have been a guy going “What AT&T? I thought this was iPhone in Canada!” infact i have seen that exact post a few times lol. so sadly he would have been tagged for that one too ^_~

  • suckaaaaa!!

    Lmfao!!! Ya dude don’t get defensive, you guys have a great site, maybe do more game reviews or talk about html5 websites or how to get free movies on cydia or this or that, you know stuff that some new readers may not know how….

  • Let me make this clear: I love feedback. And just because I responded to your comment doesn’t mean I’m getting defensive. We have our strategy for posting news and reviews on this blog. Some love it, some don’t. That’s the facts. If you don’t like it, cry like a baby all you want–that’s allowed.

    Also, when you provide feedback in a tone that screams “I love in my mom’s dark basement”, obviously I’m not going to take you seriously. Do you go around criticizing other blogs when they post articles you don’t agree with? I’m responding to your comments–can other sites say that?

    While you seem to only criticize, you can also highlight what you like. But if your case it seems that you’re one of those ‘negative Nancy’ type people that just complain about everything. What good have you done online lately?

  • We’re not going to promote piracy. You have a friend named “Google” for that. We’re here to provide news, reviews, and more. LMAFO!!!

  • Thanks for actually reading my post.

  • Xaroc, you sound like the only normal one around here hehe. But yeah, icomment4 you’re more than welcome to show us how it’s done if you feel so strongly against what is being posted. If you feel you can do a better job, we would welcome your expertise.

  • suckaaaaa!!

    Omg your just full of hate!! Did u just reverse lmfao to tell me to f off?

  • *Tips my hat to Gary, as I nod my head* lol

  • Excuse me? LMFAO stands for Laughing My F**** A** Off. How does that mean
    I’m telling you to F off? You’re weird.

  • suckaaaaa!!

    Oh and if your not here to promote piracy then why were you guys telling us how to JB our phones when it was illegal back then ehhhh???

  • Jailbreaking does not equal piracy. Please get facts straight before you
    spew the equivalent of verbal diarrhea on the Internet. ehhhh???

  • suckaaaaa!!

    Because you reversed lmfao to lmafo

  • Thank you

    I’m pretty sure that was a typo

    Not on mine yet =(

  • Nexusone

    I have been using Google instant on my iPhone 4 for a few days now and on my nexus one since yesterday so this is old news.

  • Anonymous

    Might be a a couple days old for those lucky to get it… But Google made it official on their blog today

  • Wipdeedoo

    Icomment4 is absolutely right, this was a crap article and that has been more and more the case as of late. There are how many apps in the app store and more found elsewhere?? Do reviews on great apps you have and can’t live without. That would make a great article.

    Gary, man up and don’t take such offense. Your response was pissy.

  • BV

    This is off topic, but, Why do all the YouTube embeded videos on this website not work for me? All I get is a YouTube window, with a play button crossed out. Video won’t play. I have a IPhone 3G. Anyone else get this?

  • Ex

    Works for me.

    If you have restrictions in place on your phone make sure YouTube is not part of it.
    Settings -> General -> Restrictions
    Make sure that YouTube is ON

    You’re hilarious. Get up from under the bridge, troll. Your comments are nothing but toxic waste on the internet, kinda like your life.

    Dude you and your BF icomment 4 need to chill out. All blogs have good articles and ‘bad’ articles.
