Google app for iOS now supports 3D Touch and multitasking for iPad

If you’ve got a new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus in your hand (or pocket), the Google app is now a lot more useful.

Via an update, the mainstay Google app for iOS now supports 3D Touch. A firm press on the icon will let you do cursory text searches, or use your voice. You can also do an image search with 3D Touch.

For those with iPads, Google now supports multitasking. You can use the slide-out view, or use Google in full side-by-side mode.

For all users, the app now tells you about holiday hours, and which times of day are busiest for a given business if you’d rather avoid waiting in line to buy stuff.
