Google Places Goes Instant

Places Search is the latest Google property to add Instant results.

Just like web search, the Instant feature is enabled by default. Users who wish to turn off instant can easily do so by clicking disable in Google’s settings when signed into a Google account. For users on Google Places not signed into a Google account, simply click on “Instant is Off” next to the search query box.

Recently, Google announced they would be using instant on mobile search as well.

Instant search is now available on Google:

  • Video Search
  • Mobile Search
  • Places Search
  • Web Search
  • News Search
  • Shopping Search
  • Book Search
  • Recipe Search
  • Real Time Search
  • Blog Search
  • Discussion Search

The only feature that has not been instant-tized is now Image Search.
