Google Weather Search Result Snippet for iPhone and Android Devices

Google has developed a new weather search results snippet for your iPhone and Android powered device, that lets you actually play with the results.

To try it out, just go to on your iPhone or Android-powered device and search for ‘weather’.

At first glance it shows current conditions and a forecast for the next few days. But by moving the slider over the next 12 hours, you can now see a detailed hour-by-hour breakdown of the changing weather conditions. As you do this, keep an eye on the temperature, wind speed and humidity and see how all these conditions are expected to trend across the day.

The background color changes throughout the day. As you scroll further down you’ll see google regular web search results for your query.

This new weather search experience is available only in English.

But we could not get this working from Thiruvananthapuram, India. Many have reported in the Google Mobile Blog that it is not working for them too, even with the settings as given below.

Weather settings

  • [advt]Use my location: Check to use the phone’s location service to determine your location when displaying weather information. Uncheck to set the location manually, using Set location.
  • Set location: When Use my location is unchecked, touch to specify the location for weather information by entering a city or postal code.
  • Use Celsius: Check to use the Celsius temperature scale instead of Fahrenheit.
