Google Instant goes mobile

It's become a love or hate thing for many, but there's no denying that Google Instant is here to stay. Indeed, it's not just here on your desktop, it has started its entry to smartphones too.

If you've missed it previously, Google Instant makes search faster by displaying actual search results as you type. Quite simply, it speeds things up. If you love it on your computer, you'll no doubt love it on your mobile too.

It's just launched. At least, it has launched in the US, with the UK likely to see it sometime soon - no date has been given as yet though. But you can look forward to the same desktop functionality if you want it. If you do, head to Google in your phone’s browser and tap the Google Instant 'Turn on' link beneath the search box. If you don't...then don't. Everything will stay as it was.

According to Google, Instant for mobile works best on 3G and Wi-Fi networks, so if your connection is shaky, keep it switched off. It’s currently available for Android 2.2 (Froyo) devices and iPhones and iPods running iOS 4.
