The search engine giant has introduced an innovative patent search feature that lets users quickly search for any of the more than 2.3 billion patents in the world.
The search bar will show a brief summary of the patents in your area, and will then let you enter your search terms.
You can also add other keywords, such as “patent”, “patents”, or “patenting software”.
Google has previously added patent search to its website and its app, but has only introduced this feature recently.
The new feature has already been downloaded more than 12 million times.
The feature is a step up from Google’s existing patent search page, which has already had its share of bugs.
In May, Google announced a patent search bug that caused some users to get a 404 page.
There have been some complaints about the patent search site, however, and Google has said that it will “continue to work on a fix” and will be “coming out with a new feature soon”.
Patent search was not available on the web until the late 1970s, when it was created by a group of German researchers, but it is now available to everyone in the US and Canada.
It has also been described as the “ultimate patent search tool” by US tech blogger Mark Russinovich.
