SharePoint Mobile and Flow
Improvements are also coming to the SharePoint mobile app, which features a brand new find tab. Users are now able to find content, people, and answers on the go, with links to recent documents, site recommendations, news, and more.
Like other Microsoft product, the results are continually updated as the user’s searches to speed up the process, returning answers relevant to their position and work. It can also show instant answers if the user’s organization has curated queries.
