Google unveils huge plans in making its search quicker, easier and better. Search On is now witnessing a whole lot of improvements but they will however be rolling out to the United States first.
Google Unveils Huge Plans in Making Its Search Quicker, Easier and Better
Tech giants, Google have now made an announcement in regards to a bunch of changes it has made to its core search functionality thus focusing on making surfing the web a whole lot quicker and a process that is more convenient and many more on the sides.
The development was announced at its Search On conference. And all of these changes will be rolling out in the US down the line and the very first big introduction is that shortcuts to various services and tools are going to be introduced to the service and they will be nestling right under the search bar.
The Changes Coming to Google’s Services
The changes coming into the service include an icon for translating text with camera or identifying a tune just by humming it or indeed helping out with a homework issue through the camera, all common tasks that may come in handy and can now be accessed quickly simply by a tap on the relevant shortcut.
The feature in this case will be coming to the Google app for iOS in the US (English language) to get things started and then a wider rollout will follow suit.
Google Will Be Ushering In Topic Options That Will Appear Directly Under the Search Box
Google in terms of making core search on its platform more intuitive and quicker will be ushering in topic options that will appear directly under the search box just as type or enter a query. Google has given an example and it is in the format of a person typing a search for ‘best Mexico cities’, and after having entered the text, a whole lot of suggestions for the query pop up and they include ‘for families’, ‘for expats’, ‘to retire’, and so forth and so on. These are all likely options that you will need and hopefully will let you finish quickly your query with just a simple tap.
This feature again will launch in the US (in English) to start with, in the “coming months” Google informs us, and the same goes for the remaining capabilities that we are about to explore.
Other Expected Updates to Be Introduced By Google
Next up are the details that are surfaced by a simple search, which again in Google’s example of searching for a city will now include visual stories and the likes of video clips from people who have visited that particular place prominently.
The emphasis here is on imparting more practical pieces of information such as tips on getting around the city, how to travel or get there, or things to do during your stay, rather than just, say, historical or geographical facts for example (not that you will not still receive some of that as results).
And after a search, suggestion buttons will also pop up just underneath the search box thus pointing to further topics that you might want to explore, such as the beaches of that city you’re going to visit – and you simply tap on these, and dive down even deeper into further suggestions if it is required.
Google Is Revamping the Way Search Results Are Presented
Lastly, Google tells us that it is revamping the way search results are presented to “better reflect the ways people explore topics”. This simply means that as you scroll down, related topics will be highlighted. And sticking with the city example that was provided, those subjects include the likes of results that are pertaining to the local cuisine and recipes, musical traditions, art, and so much more.
