Google has announced plans to roll out a resource which provides users with real-time suggestions while they search.

In a post on the search engine firm’s official blog, product manager Jennifer Liu explains that Google Suggest is due to be made available by default on its homepage in the near future.

"Over the next week, we’ll be rolling this out so that more and more of you will start seeing a list of query suggestions when you start typing into the search box," she explains.

Ms Liu asserts that the feature will provide suggestions upfront, meaning that people will be able to search "more efficiently and conveniently", adding that spelling errors are corrected ahead of time to reduce time amending them after carrying out a search.

In other news, it was recently announced that search engine firm Yahoo! and Intel have outlined plans for a television application framework named the Widget Channel.
