International Business Times

Google has been testing a new feature for its search app over the past two months and now it has rolled it out over the iOS and Android apps and Google.com. The "Recent" tab will allow users to browse through their previous searches so they can find what they are looking for faster and easier. The feature is contextual, so you needn't be worried about going through everything you searched for -- it will group related searches together and let you compare the search results side-by-side. You will also be able to delete the search queries you consider obsolete. You can also access the feature from the navigation drawer of the Google app, Android Authority reported.

World Cup aside, the global top list of searches is dominated by a heartbreakingly long list of celebrities who died in 2018: Avicii, Mac Miller, Stan Lee, Anthony Bourdain, XXXTentacion, Stephen Hawking and Kate Spade are all in the top ten. Black Panther and Meghan Markle (who also tops Google's "People" list this year) round up the list.
