Google announced the availability of its new Google search and Chrome web browser apps for Windows 8, Microsoft’s new operating system, which hit the market today.

The Google Search app was spotted previously. We talked it about it here, but here’s what Google had to say about it today:

The Google Search app comes with a clean and recognizable user interface. Our new voice search lets you naturally speak questions. The image search and image previews are built for swiping. And, as usual, you get immediate results as you type with Google Instant. The doodles you enjoy on special occasions will be right there on the homepage and even show up on the Google tile on your start screen.

Google put together the following video to help Windows 8 users “get their Google back in two easy steps”. These would be putting Google on your start page by getting the Google Search app, and getting Google Chrome (and making it your default browser). Actually, Google has set up a site where you can quickly get both at GetYourGoogleBack.com.

“The Chrome browser is the same Chrome you know and love, with some customizations to optimize for touchscreens, including larger buttons and the ability to keep Chrome open next to your other favorite apps,” says Google Search product management director Tamar Yehoshua. “It delivers the fast, secure web experience you’ve come to expect from Chrome on all your devices.”

Microsoft, of course, showed off its new Bing apps for Windows 8 as well.

    I know this sounds ridiculous but Google should release a Windows 8 app for Google+ , YouTube and Google Maps (if they don’t want users to be whisked away to a Google-free world). Apple tried to leave the “Google cocoon” and iOS 6 Maps became a disaster. The difference is Microsoft has been a software and online services company. Google should consider Windows 8 otherwise if they try to be like Apple there will consequences. Potential users lost.
