Google has rolled-out real time search results for all users, bringing updates from news sites as well as Facebook and Twitter which will appear within seconds of being posted.

The new Google search feature follows the search giant’s recent deals with Facebook and Twitter and it’s work on speedier search architecture code-named Google Caffeine.

Revealing Google’s real-time search features, Google’s vice-president of engineering, Amit Singhal, said it will add more information sources as they appear and revealed the rational behind the new developments: “Information is being posted at a pace we’ve never seen before. In this information environment, seconds matter.

To see Google’s real-time search feature, search for something, then click on “show options” and select “latest” from the left hand menu when it appears. You’ll be greeted by a box above the more traditional search results which will show scrolling updates from Facebook, Twitter and news sites.
