Google Rolling Out App Installation From Search Results

Google has always been one to move forward with innovation to provide its massive user base with convenience and ease of access. As a matter of fact, another one of the company's development is now starting to roll out the capability for users to easily install Android apps directly from search results.

Sometimes, whenever a user searches for something from the Google app, suggestions for app installations are usually shown. Normally, clicking on these suggestions would open a direct link into the Google Play Store if the users are browsing on their Android device. From there, users would have to click on install so that it would take effect on their devices. With Google's new development, however, an app can be installed directly from Google's coughed up search results.

Users can check if they are included in the roll out by starting the Google app and then searching for the name of a specific app. Say, 'Clash of Clans' or any other app, and it will appear on the top of the search results with an install button attached to it. Should users be included in the roll out, they will see a permission page pop up just like how it works in the Google Play Store. However, if they are directed to the app's Play Store page itself upon tapping, then it's a clear sign that it's not yet available.

The new feature, however, only works directly from the Google app and not from the Chrome browser's search results. There are still no official announcements made by the search engine giant, and it's not as widespread as it was deemed to be. However, it has been reportedly available for a month or so, but it has reached enough users for it to gain traction.
