Homepage Shortcuts on Mobile

Besides the new desktop features, Google also revealed a new landing page and homepage shortcuts for its mobile search, with shortcut icons to commonly searched local categories like restaurant and coffee at the bottom of the mobile Google homepage.

On the results page, users will see a map with markers for their current location and places around. The map will remain at the top of the page and automatically adjust to the listings users are looking at when they are scrolling through the results.

Meanwhile, Google said it had added more suggested phrases to the search box and let users type search queries piece by piece, making inputting queries with many characteristics much faster.
