Google has delivered an update on their mobile search engine. You can now get quick access to your recent searches (from desktops!) if you have enabled the Google Web History functionality.
Google spoke about this update:
We provide this new convenience feature for users who have Web History enabled and are logged into Google when doing their search. Start by searching for a place on your PC or other devices, then login to Google.com’s mobile homepage and check the Recent icon. Information about previously searched places will be available under the Recent icon for about a day.
The new “Recent” icon shows information about places you have recently searched for on any of your devices. Try swiping to the right to see more icons for other categories of places.
If you do not like this feature, you can always disable Web History from your Google account.
