Google Instant hits iPhone & Android phones

iPhone and Android users can now get as you type search results, with the arrival of Google Instant in the UK.

A beta version of the search feature landed on US handsets last month, having debuted on desktop devices and lappys back in September.

From today, UK iPhone owners running running iOS 4.0 or above and Android users with 2.2, AKA Froyo, or higher can also get onboard. The rest of the world isn’t being left out either, with support now on offer in 40 countries across the globe and in 28 languages.

To get started, though, you’ll first have to make your way to Google.co.uk and opt in by clicking the on button next to Instant (beta).

Back when it hit phones in the US, Google claimed that Instant was “pushing the limits of mobile browsers and wireless networks”.

The search giant added: "Google Instant for mobile works best on 3G and Wi-Fi networks, but since the quality of any wireless connection can fluctuate, we've made it easy to enable or disable Google Instant without ever leaving the page.”
