People using Google Search on mobile and tablet devices will be treated to some new interactive features.

Google announced on its blog that it has made improvements to its search engine, including ‘richer, more beautiful, and more interactive’ answers.

Now when a user searches for weather on tablet and mobile they will see a new interactive 10-day and hourly forecast.

The calculator feature has also had a makeover, it now brings up a fully functional scientific calculator when you search for any calculation.

Google’s flight status quick answer now features a flight progress indicator, meaning users will have a more detailed idea of arrival and departure times.

For the time being, these changes are only being made on google.com in English, but the company is planning to roll these new features out to international users soon.
