The latest updates and improvements for the Google app for iOS

Earlier this year, we announced that your Google app for iOS got faster. Now buckle up, because today, we’re adding three new features that will make your app more private, video-friendly and stable.


More control with incognito mode

Your searches are your business. That’s why we’ve added the ability to search privately with incognito mode in the Google app for iOS. When you have incognito mode turned on in your settings, your search and browsing history will not be saved. And for added security, you can enable Touch ID for incognito mode, ensuring that only you can re-enter your existing incognito session if you exit the app.

Watch YouTube videos in Search

Watching YouTube videos right from Search has never been so simple. Skip the extra step before you break into dance to your favorite music video or before you learn a thing or two in the latest how-to. No new web pages + less load time = more fun.

Keep your searching stable

Finally, we have made some improvements under the hood of your app. These updates will make the app twice as reliable and less likely to crash, which means more searches and fewer sighs.

We hope you enjoy these latest updates to your Google app for iOS. As always, we welcome feedback to help make your app even better.
