Google has released a search app for Windows 8 devices, much as it has for those running iOS and the BlackBerry OS.Google App Adds Search Functionality To Windows 8 [zdnet.com]
The app, flagged up by Microsoft engineer Mohamed Mansour in a Google+ post on Tuesday, makes it possible for users to search through Google's engine without needing to fire up a browser. It also provides a quick link to Google services including Gmail, Drive, YouTube, Reader, Maps and Calendar.

Google has also put voice control into the app in Mansour's words, Google Now is "baked in", giving Windows 8 devices some of the same functionality as that on Android 'Jelly Bean' 4.1 smartphones and tablets.

This seems to be a collaboration more in service to customers than the companies involved. Of course, they still both benefit, but it's good to see.
