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.
So is DuckDuckGo no good? Surprised you did not mention it. Following last week's article about privacy and surveillance capitalism, several readers wrote in about the absence of DuckDuckGo, and it was mentioned a dozen times in the comments. I have suggested this privacy-oriented search engine a few times since 2012, and I think it's worth a go.

In another blow for Bing's owner Microsoft, the fifth most common search was people looking for help with Windows 10.
Peacock is officially available across the US today, but if you want to download it on your Android device, you won't find it by browsing the Google Play Store. Instead, you'll need a direct link to its listing. In what seems to be a blunder, the new Peacock TV app does not appear in Play Store search results, CNET reports. In the weeks leading up to Peacock's launch, NBCUniversal said the new streaming service would be available on its mobile apps and websites -- as well as Android TV and Chromecast, LG and Vizio TVs and PlayStation 4. Peacock is running a promotional deal with Google, in which anyone who subscribes to Peacock's premium tier through a Google platform can unlock an extended free trial. The fact that the app isn't appearing in Play Store search results could hurt Peacock's initial rollout.
