If you have an iPhone or iPad, you might use apps like Gmail, YouTube and the Google app. These apps are specially built to work on iOS phones and tablets, and we’ve recently added Siri Shortcuts so that you can easily access your favorite features on those apps.  With Siri Shortcuts you can simply tap on a suggestion or ask Siri to shortcut the steps to common tasks. Now, to make it easier to find what you’re looking for on the web with the Google app, you can add a Siri Shortcut to “Search with Google.”

How to use "Search with Google" Siri Shortcut

“Search with Google” is the newest of many Shortcuts we’ve recently added to Google iOS apps. If you’re interested in exploring more, check out Drive where we’ve added a Shortcut to “Search in Drive” or YouTube where you can ask Siri to “Search YouTube.” If you regularly write a lot of emails (like we do), you can even add a Siri Shortcut to “Send email” in Gmail

You’ll find all our Shortcuts in the Shortcuts app on your iOS device. Give them a try today.
