Google on Wednesday brought a new update to its apps called the “In Apps” at the service of its users. The new mode allows users to search content in an already installed app on their Android devices. This new app appears as an option inside the mother app and allows the user to search for contacts, pictures and videos among other things in apps like Gmail, Youtube, and Spotify. The In Apps mode is also said to be accessible without the use of the internet.
As the app works without any internet connection, the user could look to change settings or shift through their softwares for web addresses they might have forgotten, being offline. Google said that it would soon add other supporting apps, helping users to browse for keywords on apps like Facebook, LinkedIn, Evernote, as well as apps like Glide, Todoist, and Google Keep.
Anything the users search in this new mode would only be visible in their personal results. The user can also control what apps he wants to appear, by changing the settings within the Google app. The LG V20 is reported to be the first smartphone to be shipped with the new update with a dedicated shortcut on its home screen. Though all Android users would be able to access the new feature once they update their Google app.
