We’re introducing the Yahoo! Search Widget for the Android smart phones today, making it much easier to access web search on the Android phone home screen.
The UI is simple and compact to fit the size of your phone screen. Under the covers, we’ve packed in some cool features.
You can type the query using the touch screen or use the voice input to speak your search query. Whether you enter the query by touch screen or voice, you’ll see search suggestions that help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
In the Yahoo! Mobile Search results, you’ll see shortcuts, news and deeper results only a tap away. Try searching for “World Cup” and you’ll get a concise set of the latest scores and news, with deeper results about the games.
While the app is currently only available in the U.S., the voice input package is available in multiple languages. Look for your country-specific version to roll out soon in your local Android Market.
Try out the Yahoo! Search widget and our other widgets by scanning the barcode below with your Android phone. We’d love to hear what you think.
