Google is geared up to enhance the user experience to a great level. The company is taking a lot of efforts to cater to the needs of users in areas with patchy internet connectivity.
According to an Android Police report, Google is testing a light version of the Search app in order to make it usable even in areas with slow internet connectivity. The app is available for download via the Play Store in Indonesia alone for testing purposes.
The report claims that the app appeared in Facebook ads for many users of the network in Indonesia. Those who clicked on it were invited to download and install the same on their Android device. Dubbed Search Lite, this app is a data-conscious app that lets you carry out most of the regular Search functions that you do on Google Search by using less data and support for a few offline features as well.
We could not find the Search Lite app in the Google Play Store in India and we believe that it might be launched in the country once Google is done with the testing in Indonesia. Similar to the other Lite apps that are launching lately, the Search Lite app will also work pretty well in the areas with slow or poor internet connectivity. It will support offline features in order to render an uninterrupted and seamless searching experience on Google.
The Google Search Lite app makes it possible to change the language with similar languages supported for now and the home screen has quick access icons for weather, news, images, offline pages, translation and more. These quick access icons can be customized as per the users' preferences. The report claims that the Search Lite app lets users perform even voice search besides the usual text search.
Based on the data usage preference, the app's settings can be tweaked to use 'lite' web pages or the usual web browser. The Indonesian users can download the Google Search Lite app from the Google Play Store or sideload the APK file from APK Mirror.
