Google Instant caused a huge splash when it was first released. The very idea of receiving real time updates as you typed in your search query scared the search engine optimization community and intrigued users. In the beginning, it was not clear if the feature would stick around after some users complained about it, but through the process of fine tuning the feature, Google has been able to put together a solid incarnation and will allow users to finally utilize Google Instant on Apple iPhone’s and other iOS devices. The Instant Previews feature is the only thing that we will be seeing on the unlocked iPhone 4 for the time being.
The Google Instant Previews feature allows you to take a look at the look and layout of a Google search result page before making any kind of decision to visit the page. The feature has already been used on desktops for quite some time, and will work on the mobile devices in the same way that it always has for the desktops.
Flipping from one preview to another will be as simple as moving through the thumbnails in the Safari browser. The new feature will be very convenient for Google and will allow Google to better serve mobile users who are notoriously tired of having to settle for outdated versions of their favorite search engine on their mobile devices.
Perhaps the best part about this update is that there will be no download required. Google will slowly make the feature available to all users as they continue to test, unleashing the feature to select groups at a time. If you are in a rush to see the Google Instant Preview feature on your iPhone 4 unlocked handset, there is really nothing you can do but sit back and wait for the company to roll it out to you. So far there is no sign up process that allows you to opt in early for Google Instant Preview.
