How to “Delete Google App Search History for the Last 15 Minutes” on Android Devices


While the feature has been around for iOS since last year, Google is finally releasing the “Delete Last 15 Minutes” feature on its app for Android users.

The “Delete Last 15 Minutes” feature is making its way to Android devices, offering Google app users a way to quickly delete their recent search history. Nowadays, people all over the world use the Google app to read everything from their smallest doubts to global developments. People even use the search engine to connect to other platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Telegram and more. However, every query made by users is stored in the app’s search history.

While search history helps users get back to something they thought was valuable, some users don’t want Google to keep track of their activity. These users can enable “automatic deletion” in the Search History section of the Google search application. The search application allows users to automatically delete any activity older than three months, 18 months, or 36 months. Android users who want to delete recent history from the Google app had to do it themselves, until now.
