Google Search for Windows Phone now lets you sign in, shows instant voice results

Google may not always be kind to Windows Phone users, but it's showing them some love today with an update to its self-titled search app for the platform. The new release lets users sign into their Google accounts, preserving their search history as they hop from device to device. It also shows voice commands as they're spoken. While the app still doesn't include Google Now or many other perks from the equivalent Android and iOS clients, the improvement is large enough that searchers will want to swing by the Windows Phone Store for an upgrade.
