This new feature is still in the early stages, currently undergoing testing with a handful of companies and their corresponding apps. However, this feature certainly looks like it could be a potential solution to poor conversion rates through Mobile Search. It also gives Android apps a powerful benefit that Apple cannot easily replicate.
