Google Instant Previews Launch for iOS

Google today announced the official launch of Instant Previews for mobile devices running Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.0+, offering preview snapshots of webpages right from search results.

Similar to the desktop version of Instant Previews, you can visually compare search results from webpage snapshots, making it easier to choose the right result faster, especially when you have an idea of the content you'd like to see.

For example, if you're looking for a webpage that has both photos and descriptions, you can use Instant Previews to quickly identify these pages by navigating across the visual search results with a few swipes of your finger. Or perhaps youre looking for an article, a step-by-step instructions list, or a product comparison chart - with Instant Previews, you can see easily spot pages with the right content without having to navigate back and forth between websites and search results.

Instant Previews are available in 38 languages and can be accessed by tapping the magnifying glass icon next to search results on Google's mobile web interface. Users can then navigate between result previews by swiping sideways.
