Google releases Google Search for Windows 8 app

Google releases Bing competitor in Windows Store - Google Search for Windows 8
| Apps News | Posted: Oct 24, 2012 7:26 am

There are only a few days until Windows 8 launches, with Mountain View-based search giant Google releasing a dedicated search application for Windows 8 ahead of the operating system's release on Friday.




Google Search for Windows 8 is available right now in the Windows Store for free as an alternative to Microsoft-owned Bing, the default search engine in Internet Explorer on Windows 8. Google Search for Windows 8 isn't just a search app either, it is a portal to other Google services.


Google Search for Windows 8 acts as a portal to Gmail, Calendar, Maps, Drive and Reader - all while the main interface sports a simple large search bar including voice search, if you want to just talk into the PC for your searching needs.
