Delete Last 15 Minutes

Google Search History new feature

At the Google I/O 2021 conference, the search giant had announced a new feature under which you could delete the search history of the last 15 minutes. The feature was rolled on to the iOS variant of the Google App last year, but there was no tentative date for the feature to arrive on Google’s own operating system. Now finally about three months late this feature is being rolled out on the Android platform which helps protect user privacy. This feature may also land on Chrome OS, on the web version of the search engine, and on other platforms in the future, with no set date yet. The process is really simple and it can be accessed from the Google search application on your smartphone.

How to Delete Last 15 Minutes Search History in Google?

In order to delete your search history of the last 15 minutes;
  1. Open Google Search app on your device.
  2. Tap on your profile picture in the Google app, on the top right-hand corner.
  3. Now look for the ‘Delete last 15 minutes’ option under the ‘search history’ option.
  4. Click on the ‘Delete last 15 minutes' option.
  5. Once you tap on the option, there’ll be a pop-up at the bottom of the screen displaying, “Deleting history. Changes will show in your account soon.” There’s a cancel button if you want to retain the search history.
  6. Click on "Continue" to delete your search history for the last 15 minutes.
Enabling this would clear your recent search history on not just the device but also the 'My Activity' page that keeps a track of your activities across all Google apps.

Until then, Google allowed you to automatically delete all search history for the last three, 18, or 36 months but with this new option, you'll have a possibility to delete it every 15 minutes, right?
