Google is removing another search option filter for mobile users.
Mobile users will not be able to use the custom date range search filter.
After much thought and consideration, Google has decided to retire the Search Custom Date Range Tool on mobile. Today we are starting to gradually unlaunch this feature for all users, as we believe we can create a better experience by focusing on more highly-utilized search features that work seamlessly across both mobile and desktop. Please note that this will still be available on desktop, and all other date restriction tools [e.g., “Past hour,” “Past 24 hours,” “Past week,” “Past month,” “Past year”] will remain on mobile.”, AJ from Google wrote.
This is the custom search date range filter found under the “Search Tools” option by clicking on “Any Time” and then selecting “Custom Range.”
They can access this feature only in the desktop version of Google.
