Google iOS Search App Gets iMessage Extension, Safari Related Content & iPad Drag/Drop Support

Google announced they have upgraded the iOS Google search app to bring three new features. Specifically the ability to search and share directly in iMessage, to look for related content in the Safari browser and drag and drop support for iPads.

iMessage

To see the iMessage change, tap the iMessage apps drawer, and tap on Google app icon. Then you can tap on the icon for “Food” or “Nearby” to share your locations, or perform a search and share a card directly into the messages.

iPad Drag and Drop Support

With an iPad in iOS 11, you can now drag and drop to quickly and easily move text, images and links to and from the Google app. If you are in the Google App, you can tap and hold to pick up the link and drag it into iMessage to share with a friend or in Notes or other applications. Here is a GIF showing it off:
