Google Search For Android Can Now Show Results From Inside Apps

Google released a new update to Google Search for Android last week that allows you to search inside apps. The update is meant to make it easier to find what you are looking for.

You can see the demo of the search feature in the image below:

Basically, the new search will find information based on information inside apps.

A task as simple as choosing a movie to see can actually be complex — and the information you want can be in several different places, often in apps. You might get your trivia from IMDb, the box office stats from Wikipedia and ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. Starting today, Google can save you the digging for information in the dozens of apps you use every day, and get you right where you need to go in those apps with a single search. Google Search can make your life a little easier by fetching the answer you need for you — whether it’s on the web, or buried in an app.

You can also ask Google to search for a specific app. In this example below, Google is showing app results based on search “downhill skiing apps”
