Google today announced that it has beautified and improved its answers for mobile and tablet search.

Today when you search on mobile or tablet, you'll see some more improvements in the way we provide these quick answers, including better understanding what information you need and surfacing the most relevant information for you. For example, in our flight status quick answer, we've included a flight progress indicator and increased the size of arrival and departure times so you can quickly see when your loved ones will be landing.

Other quick answer features we're updating on mobile and tablet cover finance, currency conversion, unit conversion, dictionary definitions, local time lookup, and holiday and sunrise times. In all these quick answers we've simplified the experience so you can focus on the answer you were looking for. For example, for unit conversions the answer is displayed prominently for a question like [how many miles are 42 kilometers]. If you'd like to convert another unit of measure like [how many yards in a mile], you can simply tap the card and see the full unit converter right there.


The company says it plans to bring quick answers with beautiful design to desktop and international users as well.
