Google on Monday updated its Google app for iPhone and iPad to now include an iMessage extension. It allows users to Google search from within iMessage, and share results with contacts.
Within iMessage, the Google extension will appear in the apps drawer. Google has included pre-set search icons like food and weather, and a GIF search mode, as well. You can also filter search results by location by tapping "nearby."
Further, Google also announced better search integration for Safari users on iOS. Now, you can share a webpage from Safari with Google and see related content when you search.
