  • Publication number: 20200284606
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes receiving at a computer server system, from a computing device that is remote from the server system, a string of text that comprises a search query. The method also includes identifying one or more search results that are responsive to the search query, parsing a document that is a target of one of the one or more results, identifying geographical address information from the parsing, generating a specific geographical indicator corresponding to the one search result, and transmitting for use by the computing device, data for automatically generating a navigational application having a destination at the specific geographical indicator.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for presenting information in a header region of an application are provided. In some aspects, a URL is received in an omnibox of an application window of a computer. A page corresponding to the URL is presented in a page display region of the application window. The URL is presented in the omnibox. A collapsed form of the URL and connection information associated with the page are presented in a button of the application window adjacent to the omnibox. The collapsed form of the URL includes a representation of a top-level domain and a hierarchy of the URL. The collapsed form of the URL includes different text from the URL.

  • Publication number: 20200202019
    Abstract: The subject matter of this specification can be embodied in, among other things, a method that includes receiving at a computing device that is in a locked state, one or more user inputs to unlock the device and to execute at least one command that is different from a command for unlocking the device. The method further includes executing in response to the user inputs to unlock the device an unlocking operation by the device to convert the device from a locked state to an unlocked state. The method further includes executing the at least one command in response to receiving the user inputs to execute the at least one command. The at least one command executes so that results of executing the at least one command are first displayed on the device to a user automatically after the device changes from the locked state to the unlocked state.

  • Publication number: 20200201924
    Abstract: In general, the subject matter described in this specification can be embodied in methods, systems, and program products for receiving user input that defines a search query, and providing the search query to a server system. Information that a search engine system determined was responsive to the search query is received at a computing device. The computing device is identified as in a first state, and a first output mode for audibly outputting at least a portion of the information is selected. The first output mode is selected from a collection of the first output mode and a second output mode. The second output mode is selected in response to the computing device being in a second state and is for visually outputting at least the portion of the information and not audibly outputting the at least portion of the information. At least the portion of information is audibly output.

  • Patent number: 10678429
    Abstract: The subject matter of this specification can be implemented in, among other things, a computer-implemented user interface method including displaying search results from a plurality of sources in a native search application executing on a computing device. Each search result can be associated with one or more different types of applications. Selection of a particular search result can cause the computing device to open an application corresponding to an application type associated with the search result and display information associated with the search result in the application.

  • Patent number: 10582355
    Abstract: In general, the subject matter described in this specification can be embodied in methods, systems, and program products for receiving a voice query at a mobile computing device and generating data that represents content of the voice query. The data is provided to a server system. A textual query that has been determined by a speech recognizer at the server system to be a textual form of at least part of the data is received at the mobile computing device. The textual query is determined to include a carrier phrase of one or more words that is reserved by a first third-party application program installed on the computing device.
