Nearly two year after launching Graph Search on its desktop site, Facebook is finally bringing its powerful search engine to mobile. On Monday, the company unveiled Facebook Search, a rebranded version of Graph Search that lets users search to locate specific Facebook posts and photo captions via keywords, while previously, a keyword search would only return relevant names or pages.

This new search engine is currently only available on its iOS app, with plans to roll out to other platforms in coming week. As mobile search is predicted to surpass desktop search in 2015, Facebook’s shift to focus on mobile search seems quite timely.
