Sometimes, due to the poor network connectivity in our part of the world, it becomes very difficult to search for stuff online. This, coupled with our low storage and RAM in our devices makes it even worse. It is always the desire of internet based services to reach the needs of their customers wherever they are and to provide solutions that meet their desired needs; Google has been in that business for long. That is why they have introduced Google Go.
What is Google Go?
This app which has already been launched in 16 African countries including Ghana is a lightweight search app aimed at emerging markets. This is to help perform successful google searches in the midst of our unstable data coverage and all other issues that make browsing difficult.
Google Go is meant to solve issues we often face in emerging markets like Ghana: weak data connectivity, high data costs and low RAM and storage space on entry-level devices. It uses less than 5MB of storage on Android smartphones.
Google Go uses the latest version of the company’s compression algorithm, which it said consumes up to 40% less than to display search results. Search results are also cached on the device so users can quickly re-access previous searches, even when they’re offline, without incurring further data costs.
At the point when there’s no Internet access, Google Go retries f for out of sight failed searches and tells you when the outcomes are prepared. Site pages load immediately, even in data-saving mode or on 2G connections.
Voice search has been improved to work better on slow connections, too.
