Google has updated its official search application for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to version 7.0 in the App Store. The refreshed app now supports the always-on “Ok Google” feature within in-app browser and also understands what you’re searching for in the context of the webpage you’re browsing. Here's how the changelog looks like:
  • Say “Ok Google” and ask a question while on any web page to get smart answers about what you are looking at. Try saying “Ok Google, where was he born” while reading an article about William Shakespeare
  • Copy and paste from anywhere in the app
  • More detailed local search results
Prior to this update, “Ok Google” was only available on the app’s search screen and you weren’t able to use it if you navigated away from search results. The new version comes in at 62.9 megabytes and requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 7.0 or later to run. Go ahead and follow the link from the end to download it.
