Official Google Search app released for Windows 8

In a move that hopefully means more support for Windows products, Google has released their official search app for Windows 8. This will be a great alternative for those who install Windows 8 and don’t want to use Bing.

The Google Search app is full of goodies. You can of course do a regular text search from the Start screen, plus voice and image search. Bringing down the menu will show what sites you visited recently. There is also an application page for hopping directly to Google apps like Gmail, Drive, YouTube, etc. The app looks really nice, and we hope Google releases more Windows 8 apps. This one is only available for Windows 8 Pro, but hopefully it will be ready for Windows RT soon.
