Google's real-time search, powered by news sites and social networks like Twitter, has just gotten an overhaul. Apart from streaming real-time search updates from its own page, it also sports location-based searching, conversation views and email updates.
We were pretty excited about Google's new endeavour when they released it in December, but it seemed to lose its mojo fairly quickly. Having real-time Twitter updates seemed great in theory, but when you didn't want them there, they just cluttered up your search results. Now, though, it has its own page, so when you're searching for information on more timely news, you can choose to go there instead of regular Google search.
It also has a few cool features that come with it, too. You can search for results from news outlets and social networks near you or from any other location you desire. You can also view the entire conversation stemming from the initial comment, so it's more organised, as well as get email updates from Google Alerts if you don't feel like frequenting the search page. Check out the video above for a demonstration, and hit up real-time search's new page to check it out.
