Google has made some improvements to its suggested search results, offering better auto-correction and spelling suggestions which could boost user productivity.
The company often tinkers with its 'corrected spellings' feature, but Pandu Nayak, a member of Google's technical staff, said in a blog post that it had made some "big strides" in correcting errors.
One new feature makes it easier to search for names, which many users struggle with, according to Nayak.
"Our new technology is based on the concept that people often know something else about the person besides the approximate spelling of the name," said Nayak, adding that searches involving a surname, location and profession will now produce more accurate suggestions.
This feature is being rolled out in the US now, and international versions will follow shortly, Google said.
Nayak explained that spelling auto-correction is now available in 31 languages, and has been improved to make it easier to use.
"If you search for 'aiprt', rather than showing you a link on your results page that says 'Did you mean: airport' we'll take you straight to the results for the corrected search," he wrote.
"We auto-correct when we're highly confident in our correction in order to get you the information you're looking for that much faster."
