Google Instant Search Disappears

Launched back in 2010, Instant was called to be "the future of search" and the company also described it as "search-before-you-type".

Google has removed its Instant Search feature that showed search results while a user typed, saying the change will bring it more in line with mobile search. "Since then, many more of our searches happen on mobile, with very different input and interaction and screen constraints".

Since over 50 per cent of all Google searches are made through mobiles, the company chose to do away with the facility so that it could focus on ways to make search faster on all devices, a report said on Thursday. Suggestions will still continue to appear under the search bar as you type, but now as Google has chose to put an end to Instant, you will actually have to select one of the suggestions or complete typing your query in order to get the results.

With two different search engine platforms to work on and one of them being unfitting to the changing search trends, the search engine behemoth made a decision to call Google Instant Search off. The suggestions still pop up, however, users could feel something has been missing.

It is believed that at the time of the launch, users could save up to 11 hours with every passing second, thus aiding the time-saving drive.
