Google's App Index arrives for iOS users
The Google searches on the Android smartphones are now-a-days displaying user-relevant information regarding Android apps that were indexed by the company. Since last month, the firm has started to prompt users to download and use the apps for better search experience.
Google said on Wednesday that it has set up all the same features for the iOS users that are indexed in iOS apps. iOS users can now get content from the app straight away from Google search.
Product manager of Google, Eli Wald said in a blog post, “The Company is already working with an initial group of apps and indexed links for these apps will start showing up on iOS in search results in the coming weeks both in the Google Search app and Chrome for signed-in users globally.”
Additionally, Google has detailed ways how developers can get their apps indexed on iOS. "While App Indexing for iOS is launching with a small group of test partners initially, we're working to make this technology available to more app developers as soon as possible," said Wald in the blog.
Developers have to provide deep link support and get the app indexed on the search results so that with just on one click they can reach the site.
For developers, Google revealed that it has a talk titled "Get your app in the Google index" at I/O 2015 kicking off Thursday.
