Google often releases updates for its Android apps on Wednesdays, but apparently that doesn’t apply to the company’s iOS apps. That’s good news for owners of Apple hardware, because it means that they get to enjoy a piping hot Google Search update today rather than having to wait until tomorrow.

Google today released an update to the iOS version of its Google Search app that bumps it up to version 4.0.0 and includes a number of improvements. Here’s the full changelog, straight from El Goog:

With today’s update, you can ask questions with your voice & get updates on topics you care about.

  • Then follow up with “How about this weekend?”
