Google Instant Has Been Scraped Since It Is Not Mobile Friendly


Google has ended instant search which was introduced seven years back in order to provide fast search results on desktops. Basically, Google would instantly provide results on the first page as you type in the search bar. This practice wasn't efficient on mobile devices where the keyboard will take up half of the screen.

Technically one can say that another neat feature just got killed in the mobile-first revolution since it was a great time saver on PCs. The statement by Google is given below:
We launched Google Instant back in 2010 with the goal to provide users with the information they need as quickly as possible, even as they typed their searches on desktop devices. Since then, many more of our searches happen on mobile, with very different input and interaction and screen constraints. With this in mind, we have decided to remove Google Instant, so we can focus on ways to make Search even faster and more fluid on all devices.
So technically speaking, you will only receive suggestions now and the results will only load after you press enter or choose the suggestion.
