Google updates finance search for Android, iPhone
Search results for stocks now reveal an interactive graph, plus news and personal stock information you can swipe through.
Google made a few tweaks today to the way it presents financial information in its mobile search results.
Now, typing a stock symbol into the Google.com search bar in on your iPhone or Android smartphone (2.1 or above) returns useful data in a glance, including the stock's share price and an interactive graph you can click on to see fluctuations over a day up to a five-year span.
What's more, the results appear on four "cards," or screens, that you can swipe through to see additional news, and a market overview. Those of you signed on to your Google account can also swipe to see a summarized view of your Google Finance stock portfolio.
The new usability features are launching in English for now, with more language support to follow.
