Google Search App For Windows Phone 7 Launched

Google has released its official web search application for Microsoft's newly launched Windows Phone 7 operating system.

In a blog post, the search ginat has said that the app will allow users to use Google search more easily from their Windows Phone 7 smartphone.

The app, which is available as a free download from the Windows Phone Marketplace, will allow users to receive automatic search suggestions, repeat a query from their search history and use their current location to get more personalised search results.

The Google Instant feature, that starts giving search results as soon as the users start to type, is absent from the platform, however.

“The Google Search app is a free download for all Windows Phone 7 devices and languages. Just search the Marketplace for “Google Search”, download, pin to Start, and the power of Google Search is only a click away,” the company explained.

The Windows Phone Marketplace app store is growing at an impressive rate, already offering 1,636 apps for download in the short time since its launch.
