Google has updated its official search app for iOS to version 9.0, adding three new features.

• Add a photo or review for your favorite local places • Get map results right in the app when you search for an address • Tap and play animated GIFs in image search results

The app supports Siri-like spoken search queries, speaking the answer to questions. You can also get Google Now cards through the app, which aim to proactively offer you information you might want based on your location and other clues in a similar way to iOS 9’s proactive assistant feature. The company added always-on “Ok, Google” functionality in August.

Google is a free download from iTunes.
