How painless is that? That's it; it's over, you're done. Doing this will eliminate the last 15 minutes of your search history across your Google account, including your Chromebook or other devices that you use the Google Chrome browser on. Sadly this new feature is only available via the Google app on iOS and Android devices for now, but it's a very handy option and may find its way to other devices soon.
