Almost simultaneously with the announcement of SSL Search going global Google announced that it is taking your search history across devices.
This means that if you are searching on your desktop when logged in and you go to your tablet or phone, provide you with information on the place you searched for on your desktop.
Google will show ‘recent’ icons which will show information about places you recently searched for. This means that if you for example are preparing for a city trip you could be doing some searches about that specific city. When you then take your phone on that trip it will show you information about the city.
