Google Ends Google Instant Search With Immediate Effect
More than 7 years after launching the Instant Search function, Google announces a definitive end to bring more compliance to the online search regardless of the device used.
After the launch of Google Instant Search in 2010, Google’s search engine was able to show search results instantly, as the query was entered ( auto-complete ), Google decided to permanently delete it. The goal was to provide users with the information they needed as quickly as possible, even when they typed their computer searches. It was therefore a matter of bringing quickly to the user the search results corresponding to the entry of his request for auto-completion, so that he did not need to enter all his request to see the answers sought and expected s under the search field.
But since then, More than 50% of searches on Google happen on mobile, with very different inputs and interaction and screen constraints. With this in mind, Google has decided, according Searchengineland , delete Google Instant, in order to focus on ways to make search even faster and more fluid on all mobile devices and desktop. From this day on, when entering a query, the user will only see search suggestions. And then he will be able to click on these suggestions displayed under the search box to see the results of the clicked suggestion.
