Google has updated its iOS app to include three new features, two of which are not available to Android users. First, the company has integrated 3D Touch functionality. Hard-press the screen to pull up shortcuts for standard, voice or image searches. Second, the new iPad edition offers multitasking so that users can pull the Google app up next to whatever else they're working on in a split screen. Finally, the app now also includes holiday hours and data on the busiest times of local businesses you search for so you can get your shopping done with minimal crowds.
