Search giant Google announced on Thursday that it has adapted its search algorithms to yield results that are better-adapted to mobile devices.

Starting April 21, the company will expand its use of "mobile-friendliness" as a ranking signal for mobile searches in all languages worldwide.

In a blog post detailing the changes, Google says it expects this "will have a significant impact in our search results."

As of Thursday, Google is also working to make apps feature more prominently in search results. Signed-in users who have a particular indexed app installed with now see relevant content related to it.
