Google app for Windows Phone updated with improved voice search and image viewing

Google for Windows Phone

Google has released an update for its search app for Windows Phone 8. It is quite surprising since they and Microsoft had a war over the official YouTube app for the platform. Google insisted Microsoft to build the app using HTML5, but Microsoft gave up building it because of the YouTube APIs and Windows Phone restrictions. Probably the reason behind it is the constantly growing market share of Windows Phone.

So what are the changes made by Google? The app looks pretty much like its version for Android and iOS, but it gets several improvements such as improved voice commands and image viewing. The voice commands now are directly displayed on the screen. Also, now users are able to sign in to their Google account within the app. In addition, numerous other improvements, resolution enhancements, and bug fixes have been made. Users can download the app here.
