Google introduced some exciting new mobile search tools during their I/O conference in 2021. With a new update, Android users will be able to remove the last 15 minutes of their search history.
The functionality was initially detected by XDA Developers Mishaal Rahman, who claimed to have been alerted about the upgrade and is already spreading out. Users may check their availability by opening the Google app on their Android phones and tapping the profile picture icon. This should take you to your account settings page, where you may remove the previous 15 minutes of search history.
At Google I/O 2021, Google announced it’d roll out an option to delete the last 15 minutes of your search history. This rolled out on iOS in July 2021 but was said to come to Android later. Well, it appears to now be rolling out!

This upgrade was first released for iOS devices in July 2021, however, Google missed its intended Android release target. The upgrade will be accessible to everyone in the coming weeks, and it will only work with the default Google search app. Users may access this by sliding up on their smartphones or pressing the search bar on the home screen.
It’s unknown whether the business aims to introduce the functionality to desktops, as they never said what platforms they were targeting during last year’s I/O event. Google did not release the functionality for iOS until July, and it is now extending to Android.
Google’s annual developer conference will take place on May 11 and 12, live from its Mountain View headquarters’ Shoreline Amphitheatre, and will be streamed life online for free. The event will be aired live in front of an invite-only live audience, in contrast to its digital event in 2021 and the termination of its 2020 performance.
