Google updates Search app for Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

The default Bing search on Windows Phone has always been awful (at least in my experience) but there was some respite in the form of the Google Search app. However, compared to the Search app on Android, the Windows Phone app was noticeably bare bones.

Now, however, Google has updated the Search app for Windows Phone 7.5 devices, which brings some much needed features. You now get Google’s auto-complete, which provides suggestions below the search box as you type. Another thing that has been added is voice search, which can be called upon using the button next to the search box. Lastly, you can also use your location to get results for places that are near you.

The new Google Search app is now available on the Windows Marketplace for free in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. Click on the source link to get to the app.
