According to The Verge, Google will soon roll out a function that lets users remove the previous 15 minutes of their search history.
The news has yet to be formally revealed, however, it comes after former XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman stated that he was given the information.
“We’re currently rolling this feature out on the Google app for Android and expect it to be available to everyone using the app in the next few weeks,” Google spokesperson Ned Adriance said in a statement to The Verge.
“We’re continuing to explore ways to bring this helpful feature to other surfaces.”
Users will be able to press their profile image and look for the option to remove the previous 15 minutes, as well as the last hour and 24 hours. 7-day, 4-week, and all-time options are available. The functionality was supposed to debut in Google iOS in July 2021, however, it never materialized.
It’s unclear whether Google plans to extend the function to desktop – the firm didn’t say which platforms it would be accessible on in its May announcement article, and in July, Google only announced the feature would be coming to the iOS and Android applications.
