At Google’s special Search Event which took place yesterday in San Francisco  they announced some BIG news: The launch of Google Instant.

Google Instant, which will be rolling out across the US today and across the rest of the world soon, will update search results As. You. Type.

You will receive instant results,  there will be no need to hit the search button; once you start typing, Google will make a prediction in greyed out text within the search box, and the results for their prediction will appear instantly. That means your results will already be displayed before you’ve even finished your sentence. That’s pretty fast. To see a demo of Google Instant in action, you can take a look at their YouTube Video.

Google have also announced that this service will be coming to Mobile. According to reports from TechCrunch, Google demoed the mobile version of Instant Search on an Android device at the Search event yesterday. This could potentially revolutionise search on mobile, making it much easier to browse the mobile web in a hurry.
