Offline search

Use offline search to find information even without an internet connection. For offline search, a database with search results for the most popular queries (about 50–60 MB) is downloaded to the device. The database is only updated over Wi-Fi. You can use it to look up numbers of emergency services and various organizations, data about thousands of items from Information cards, and other things that users ask about most often. Search suggestions can help you formulate your query the way most people do.

Offline search results consist of snippets (blocks with site page information) that often already contain the answer. You can't access pages from search results without an internet connection. When you connect to the internet, a link to online results appears under the search bar. Tap it to refresh the search results page.

Offline search is enabled by default. You can disable it in the app settings Offline search.
