Google Instant Previews Are Now Mobile


If you have used Google in the last few months, you may have noticed a new feature that allows you to see a small preview of a web page in search results without having to click on it. This feature, Google Instant Previews, is now available on Google mobile versions of Google search.

From the Google Mobile Developers’ Blog:

“For example, if you’re looking for a webpage that has both photos and descriptions, you can use Instant Previews to quickly identify these pages by navigating across the visual search results with a few swipes of your finger. Or perhaps you’re looking for an article, a step-by-step instructions list, or a product comparison chart—with Instant Previews, you can see easily spot pages with the right content without having to navigate back and forth between websites and search results. And when the mobile version of a website is available, we’ll show you a preview of the mobile page.”


Just like on a desktop, Instant Previews are activated by clicking on the little magnifying glass next to search results.

It seems that the lines between the capabilities of desktop computers and mobile computers (or “phones” as they are still often called) are getting just a little bit thinner every day.
