A setting can be turned on to use the light mode of the app.

Google v/s Google Go
As compared to the Google app Google Go is much lighter. It uses only 7MB space of your phone. It is targeted for emerging markets (where Android users are more). Google app takes 28 MB space, so it is better to switch on Google Go.
Works in an unstable connection
The network in an emerging market is not as strong as in the developed market. Users in such situations face the issue of slow and interrupted connection. This hampers the businesses of potential markets. Keeping this in mind Google Go is designed to tackle all the issues a user faces. It can show up the results faster as compared to other browsers.
Recently one more feature is added to it. Point the camera to the text you want to know about. Now you can translate, listen or search on that text. If you tap the option listen, it will read out the text simultaneously highlighting the word.
Apart from this, you can use the app in multiple languages. It will show important updates and news feed relevant to your interest. It will also give you suggestions without even searching for it.
