If you’re rocking a Windows Phone 7.5 Mango device and prefer to use Google as your search engine over Bing, then you’ll be somewhat happy about this news. Google has released v1.0.0.0 of the Google Search app for Windows Phone. It offers basically the same features as going to or, such as Autocomplete, but redesigned and includes My Location and Voice Search. The app is free and available now to download in the Windows Marketplace. The supported languages are English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.

    This is odd, because there’s always been a Google search app on Windows Phone from Google. This seems like a relaunch of it and reading the reviews, it seems like there’s no improvement.

    If only MS would open up the API’s to fully replace Bing on the phone they would be set…..wait, they won’t do that, because they want to ram Bing down your throat. Funny, because you can completely swap out google on android if you want, people….just….dont.

    Surprised MS approved this.

    I find it faster just to pin EI9 with Google as homepage to the homescreen (more features that way too!)

    Bing sucks.

    Did google slip a browser in this app?

    I searched and selected mobile syrup with this app and it brought up the home page within the app and didn’t open IE.
