Google app for iOS gained keyboard shortcuts


This week’s update to the Google app for iOS adds keyboard shortcuts if you have a physical keyboard for your iPad. This is what I see if I press and hold the Command key on an Apple Smart Keyboard when viewing the default Google start screen. If you are in the search text box, Command L cancels the search.

Command L = Quick search

Command Y = Recent pages

Command O = Voice search
