With this feature, users can see easily spot pages with the right content without having to navigate back and forth between websites and search results.

"To use Instant Previews on your mobile device, do a search on and tap on the magnifying glass next to any search result. A side-by-side comparison view of the webpage previews for the first page of search results will appear. When you find a result you like, tap on the preview to go straight to the website," Google said in its blog.
