Tech giant Google has introduced shortcuts on the Google Search app for Android, iOS and the mobile web that gives users the ability to explore deeper within topics they care about. With shortcuts right on the home screen, users now have access to in-depth experiences across sports, eat and drink, entertainment and weather sections. Android users will find other useful shortcuts too like translate, nearby attractions, flights, hotels, internet speed test, currency converter, and more.
