This feature, which was announced at Google’s annual developer conference in May 2021, belongs to the set of new services with which the company intends to give users greater control of data to improve their privacy.
Since July of last year, access to the deletion of search results from the Google application is available for terminals with the iOS operating system.

Although, then, Google indicated that it would reach Android devices throughout that year, it has not been until now when it has begun to extend the application for this operating system, as the former editor-in-chief of XDA Developers has been able to verify. Mishaal Rahman.
This has been confirmed by Google to TheVergewhich has reported that Android mobile users can now use the service and continues “exploring how to bring this useful feature to other surfaces”as indicated by the company’s spokesman, Ned Adrian.

Those who already have this quick results elimination service, will be able to access it from the profile picture of the Google application for Android. Once pressed, a menu will be displayed in which the option ‘Delete the last 15 minutes’ appears.
Until now, it was only possible to delete the browsing data corresponding to the last hour, the last 24 hours, the last 7 days or the last 4 weeks, as well as the entire search history, using the ‘Forever’ option.
At Google I/O 2021, Google announced it’d roll out an option to delete the last 15 minutes of your search history. This rolled out on iOS in July 2021 but was said to come to Android later. Well, it appears to now be rolling out!
