Google Instant Rolled-Out Worldwide

Google has rolled out its Instant real-time search result features to iOS and Android-based devices worldwide.

Announcing the move in a blog post, the company said that the feature, which was rolled out for iOS and Android devices in the US last month, will be available in 28 languages across 40 countries worldwide.

Google explained: “If you have an Android 2.2+ or iOS4 device, just go to in your mobile browser and you will be redirected to your local domain. Then, tap the Google Instant link beneath the search box to enable it.”

One of the few drawbacks of activating the feature on mobile web browsers is that as the screen space is limited, users will have to scroll down a bit in order to view the search results as the search suggestions cover more than half of the screen.

Some of the countries in which the feature will be available are Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway.
