No more embarrassing searches in sight, Google now lets you delete your last searches on Android easily
Thanks to an article published in The Verge, we know that Google is finally implementing the functionality that allows delete the last 15 minutes of your search history in your Android app.
“We are currently rolling out this feature to the Google Android app and expect to make it available to everyone in the coming weeks,” Google spokesman Ned Adriance said in the statement. “We continue to explore ways to bring this very useful feature to other devices.”
As we mentioned above, this feature is more than half a year old that was implemented in the Google app for iOS and the company said it would bring it to Android later in 2021, but it did not happen. The reasons? We do not know them, but the important thing is that it is already being implemented little by little on Android mobiles.
From Adriance’s statements we could ensure that this functionality could soon reach Google desktop appsbut we will have to wait to see it.
Step by step, how to delete your last 15 minutes of searches on Android
If there is something that Google likes, it is to make life easy for its users, although there are some exceptions. This is not one of those, because erasing the last few minutes of browsing on your Android smartphone it’s as simple as in iOS. In fact, the process is identical:
- Go to the Google app on your mobile.
- Click on your profile icon in the app.
- Look for the option “Delete the last 15 minutes” and confirm.
Only 3 very simple steps to follow and you will have erased all traces of what you have been looking for in those last few minutes. And if you want to cover a larger range of time, remember that this feature can also be applied for a period of 3, 18 or 36 months.
