The Google Search app offers traditional search as you will expect, but enhanced for the new modern Windows 8’s UI by adding animations to each action, ability to search by voice and via the Charms. The app also offers links to other different web applications like Gmail, Maps, YouTube and more. However, it is worth noting that these are just links, Google hasn’t yet released metro style apps for these services, which we can only assume that they are coming soon. And of course, you’ll be able to get access to Full Search History, Instant Previews and Recent Searches.

In my opinion, what separates this new app from others Windows 8 apps in the Store is that when you launch it for the first time, you’ll be presented with a tutorial that highlights all the important features and more importantly, how to use Google Search with touch; but it also gives you a good idea how to use it with the keyboard and mouse, something we aren’t seeing in most apps. The app is available for download now and it’s really worth trying. One last thing that caught my eyes is that when you click a link from the search results, it will open the page within the app and not in Chrome or in IE10. Which makes me think, if we’re in front of a new web browser, we’ve previously seen a version of Chrome metro style, but this isn’t it.
