Before a month ago Google have released the Instant Search. Instant search will predict your search query and provide the result as you type instead of heating the enter key. This saves lots of time of end user to search the thing on internet. First Google Instant was available on .com only but just after some days Google Instant was available on various countries also.

In September Google have announced that they are working on Google Instant for mobile device, and on 4th of November Beta version of Google Instant for mobile devices are available to most iPhones and Android devices in US.  To try it out, go to google.com in your phone’s browser and tap the Google Instant “Turn on” link beneath the search box (if you don’t see the “Turn on” link, try waiting a moment and then refresh the page).

Like the desktop version of Google Instant, when you type on your mobile device you’ll see predictions of what you might be searching for. If you type [anse], for example, you should see [ansel adams] along with other predictions. Results for the first prediction appear automatically, and tapping on the other predictions will display those results. Pressing the enter key or the search button skips the predictions and will display results for exactly what you’ve typed. Check out demo video for Google Instant for mobile:

Thanks to AJAX and HTML 5 which dynamically updates the page with new results and removes the need to load a new page for every query.

Google Instant for mobile works best on 3G and WiFi networks, but since the quality of any wireless connection can fluctuate, They have made it easy to enable or disable Google Instant without ever leaving the page. Just tap the “Turn on” or “Turn off” link.
