Google has added a new carousel to search results that allows you to see different perspectives on specific search topics. The new feature “Perspectives” is a box that displays “insights a range of experts, journalists, and other relevant voices” under the “Top Stories” box in search results.
In a blog post , the company shared an animated GIF of the box to give perspective on the Oscars. You’ll find tweets by Jamie Lee Curtis and Mark Hamill, as well as articles. Although it looks great, I am annoyed that this additional thing will clutter up Google’s search results. I may be nostalgic for the good times.
In this case, the perspectives are quite inoffensive. It’s easy to see how this could bring out the controversial opinions and inaccurate statements we already encounter every day on Twitter . Google claims it is “committed” to providing you with authoritative and trustworthy information in the box. Here’s what Meghan Farnsworth, spokesperson for Google, said about how it determines what information will be included.
According to Google, you’ll soon see the Perspectives carousel in English on both desktop and mobile in the US. Google is also making some other improvements to search. Clicking the three dots beside a link will bring up an “About This result” section. In the next days, that “About” box will be extended to include “all languages where Search can be found”
In the same day, the tech giant confirmed that its global rollout of the ‘about this results’ feature will be completed in all languages. The search results will include three dots that describe the source and the way Google determined it to be useful.Google is improving search results access to its “about this page” field. The tech giant stated that you can now type the URL of your organisation into Google Search. Information from About this Page will appear at the top of Search. This feature is available for all English-speaking users worldwide.
