The company has naturally added all of its essential features to the application meant for Microsoft’s newest OS and it continues to adopt a clean user interface that is instantly recognizable. The voice search function has been retained in the app and thus users can simply ask questions regarding their queries instead of typing it out. There’s Image Search and Image Previews along with Google Instant that is responsible for showing results as soon as a query is entered.

The Windows 8 version of Google will definitely not be devoid of the interesting doodles that are displayed on special occasions. These will show up on the homepage as well as on the start screen on the Google tile.
