The app is less than 5MB in size. It employs data management and compression technology and as such uses 40% less data. you can easily search for what’s trending in your country, find an inspirational quote to post on Twitter or Instagram, look for GIFs, discover places nearby and browse videos. With Google Go, you can access all your favorite apps and websites and discover the top destinations in your country.
When there’s no Internet access, Google Go retries failed search requests in the background and lets you know as soon as the results are ready. Web pages load quickly, even in data-saving mode or on 2G connections.
The Google Go App is already available in 30 African countries including Nigeria.
