Twitter recently said that they are working on a new tool that will allow users to bookmark tweets, but it isn’t the only company working on such a tool. Google has started rolling out a new bookmarking feature for its Search app which will allow the users to organize their favourite websites and save content for later. The feature was first noticed and reported by 9to5Google. The report states that the feature is currently not available to all the users, however, a mass roll-out has started.
Now, whenever you are performing a search on the Google App and open up a result a new save button will also appear on the top. When you tap the save button, the app will make a bookmark of the page which can be accessed at a later date and time. When tapped the bookmark will be saved in an unsorted section of favourites or a predefined group of favourites.
Interestingly the save button as per the report has taken place of the share button which has been now moved to the overflow menu. The report also states that the feature is now available on the beta version 7.13 of the app. However, I didn’t get to see this feature on my device running the same version, which might soon receive it.
Google keeps constantly updating its apps and making the devices much more user-friendly. Addition of the save button will help users keep a track of the pages they like directly from the app itself without having to open the Chrome app.
