Google finally seems to be offering the option to delete the last 15 minutes of your search history to its Android app. Earlier XDA Developers editor in chief Mishaal Rahman said: he has been tipped about the feature that is apparently being rolled out, and a roadside editor has seen the feature on their phone. We’ve asked Google if it can share details about the rollout, but to make sure you have it, open Google’s Android app, tap your profile picture and look for the “Delete last 15 min” option.
This feature has taken some time to make its way to the Android app. Google first announced the feature at Google I/O in May and came to Google’s iOS app in July. At the time, Google said it would release the Android version of the app later in 2021, but for some reason, the company seemed to miss that deadline. It’s unclear if Google plans to bring the feature to the desktop — in its May announcement, the company didn’t specify which platforms it would be available on, and in July, Google only said it would bring the feature to iOS and Android. apps would come . Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Google also offers a tool to automatically delete things in your search history that are three, 18, or 36 months old.
