Google is famous for rolling out minor bug fixes and improvements for its various apps in no time; following this the search engine giant has now rolled out an update for Google Search (version 3.2).

The new update for Google Search is being called a regular bug fix, apart from bringing performance improvements. However, Android Police has noted some new features in the new Google Search update. According to the site, the Google Experience Launcher has also received an update and will soon be reportedly dubbed Google Now Launcher. Further, the site claims that the Google Experience Launcher is installed on the Nexus 5 by default, so the new Google Now Launcher branding will not show up on it.

With the update to Google Experience Launcher, it is being speculated that Google might soon release the Google Now Launcher to other (non-Nexus) Android devices as an app on the Play Store.

The site suggests that the minor bug and performance improvement update in Google Search brings some new features like the new Google Now Launcher name with splash page on starting screen; hotword detection now works in British and Canadian English; icon now imports from old home screen; new animations for Google Now’s expandable card bundles; voice volume now depends on media volume and users can now customize TV provider and on-demand options.

The site also reveals that with the update, the new alarm interface comes with a new blue box along with the regular information cards.

Not too long ago, Google announced a new Search feature, which would give slightly more information about certain websites shown in the search results. These websites, in order to qualify for this feature, would have to be “widely recognized as notable online, when there is enough information to show or when the content may be handy for you,” as per the official blog post.
