Once the Google app has been updated, Google app users will be able to see a number of shortcuts just under the search box. Tapping on the arrow located right next to the shortcuts will bring up the entire list of shortcuts, all of them classified under different categories.

On top of shortcuts that gives you relevant information, Google will also be adding shortcuts to some games like solitaire, tic-tac-toe, and roll a die.

While most of the shortcuts will be made available on both iOS and Android platforms, the Android platform will receive some additional shortcuts that are exclusive to the platform. Some of these shortcuts includes:

  • Translate
  • Nearby Attractions
  • Flights
  • Hotels
  • Internet Speed Test
  • Currency Converter, and more.

Tappable shortcuts are now available in the United States. Google has made no mention about when it would be made available internationally, but we believe that those living outside the U.S. will also be getting these features eventually.

Also, do note that these shortcuts will not be made available on the desktop web version of Google.
