Google has introduced a new local search experience across devices that makes it easy to recall information about a recently searched place on your iPhone.

How often are you doing a Google search from your computer to find information about a place before going there? Now, next time you go to Google.com on your Android phone or iPhone, information about that place will be conveniently available under the new "Recent" icon. Calling, getting directions or seeing details about the places you just searched for is now only one tap away.

To utilize this feature you will need to have Web History enabled and be logged in when perform the search. You'll also need to be logged in on your mobile device to check the Recent icon.

They make it sound so wonderful. What they dont mention is they (Google) also have access to this information. Meaning they can see your past history on the web and use this to e.g. streamline advertisments/products to you or worse, sell the info to third parties. I, for one, have disabled History. If you also want to disable History go to Google.com/history and uncheck 'Remove whole Web-history'
