Google has released a major update for its web browser Google Search. This update brings a number of new features to Search that aim to help users find reliable information with more context. These features not only give users more information about the search results they see in a web browser, but they also help users find content from journalists, experts, and other relevant voices.
“Everyone should be empowered with the tools they need to find the information they trust. That’s why we’re expanding the range of useful information we find online to evaluate,” Google wrote in a blog post. Let us build features to help you.
about this result
The first feature Google has introduced in search is called ‘About this result’ and aims to help users evaluate information and understand where it is coming from. With this update, users will see three dots next to most results on Google Search wherever they search for a topic. Tapping these three dots will give users a way to know where the information they’re looking for is coming from. “With this context, you can make more informed decisions about the sites you want to visit and which results will be most useful to you,” Google wrote in a blog post.
As far as availability is concerned, Google says that this ‘About this result’ feature will be available in all languages where search is available in the coming days.
Another feature that Google is bringing to Search is called ‘Perspectives’. Perspectives is essentially a carousel that will appear below top stories and display insights from journalists, experts and other relevant voices on the topic users are searching for. Google says the carousel will launch soon in the US on desktop and mobile in English. This will expand its worldwide availability globally.

In addition, Google says that starting today, users can type in the organization’s URL into Google Search and information about this page will be filled in at the top of the search. “You’ll be able to quickly see how the website describes itself, what other people on the web have said about the site and what has been said about it recently,” the company wrote. This feature is now available globally in English.
Finally, Google says that Google Search will automatically show content recommendations when a topic is rapidly evolving. “We recently introduced similar advisories, which are triggered when our system does not have a high degree of confidence in the overall quality of the results available.
