We all know getting a proper internet connection in South Africa can be tricky. See how Google has updated their mobile app accordingly.
We're over halfway through the first month of 2017 and, while technology has done many wonderful things, getting a reliable signal down to certain parts of the country is not one of them. Google knows this and they want to ensure that you're still using their search engine to find...well, pretty much anything.

Updates To The Google App

english_1A.gif The company has updated the Google app for Android so that, even if your search fails, due to a poor internet connection, Google will save your query and deliver your results as soon as a connection is available.
With this change, search results are saved as soon as they are retrieved. Even if you lose connection afterwards or go into airplane mode. So, the next time you lose service, you can queue up your searches, put your phone away, and carry on with your day. The Google app will work behind-the-scenes to detect when a connection is available again and deliver your search results once completed.
And, if you’re worried about data charges or preserving battery life, you don't have to. This feature won’t drain your battery. And, by fetching streamlined search results pages, it minimally impacts data usage.
So, before you head out the door, make sure the Google app is running the latest version for Android. Then, the next time you hit a spotty network, your results are covered.
