Google to give realtime search results while you type [VIDEO]

As the major search engines compete to dominate the web, users are looking at ways to improve their search experience. Recently a blogger caught one of Google’s impressive new features being tested. Google is known to test some of its new features amongst a random subset of users. One such user doing a web search noticed his results page was appearing as he typed and would change as additional letters were added or subtracted.

I imagine this will only work with high-speed, low-latency Internet connections as there is a lot of back and forth from the web page to the server going on in the AJAX.

From the looks of the video however, it seems pretty effective (even faster than my Mac desktop Spotlight search!) and could see a broader rollout in the coming weeks/months. Microsoft’s Bing would need to play catchup on a feature like this.

  • Wow, Google just keeps on improving its customer experience, and not at a bad time considering Bing is trying to establish a market share…

    Any ideas how long these things normally take till they go fully live?

  • Thanks Sleigh, It can take anything from 1 month to 12months to get new features rolled out.

  • Real time search results from google data centers are possible but to access google servers in real time, internet connection needs to be lot fast and low-latency as compared to normal connectivity…..

    That feature is doing nothing effective or helpful for the user. Something Google is testing, because they want to add something more to the Google experience.

    • I concur, it’s still part of Google’s experiment to improve it’s search results.

  • its new features amongst a random subset of users. One such user doing a web search noticed his results page was appearing as he typed and would change as additional letters were added or subtracted.

  • i think you did a pretty good job.! if you would like some constructive critisism i would say that it looked like you did some of your make up in a mirror that on the side of your camera….
