Google releases more efficient version of search app on Android


Google Go has been released worldwide for Android phones. The lighter app for Google’s search engine is particularly suitable in areas where the internet is difficult to access.

The app takes up around 7 MB of storage space and is therefore suitable for smartphones with limited memory resources. The regular Google app can require tens to hundreds of MBs.

In addition to storage, Google Go also needs to work more efficiently with data consumption. According to Google, the app is up to 40 percent more efficient when processing searches. Although the app is intended for emerging markets, Google says it also offers a solution for other areas where the internet sometimes fails.

The app uses the telephone camera to translate texts via Google Lens, for example. Google Lens can also help you speak aloud texts in images.

Google released a lighter version of Google Photos last month, called Gallery Go. This app allows users to edit photos with artificial intelligence even without an internet connection.
