Google decided to change the design for news in search results

Google is trying to make the search platform a more popular place where users can check out the latest events and even live broadcasts. The company plans to highlight major sporting events, awards and natural disasters in its search results. Bloomberg reported. The IT giant explained that this measure was inspired by the work in the pandemic, when they decided to format the data not only in the form of links.

Google has begun work on a custom search news design. In recent years, when making queries, the search engine has displayed an interactive carousel with titles and illustrations at the top of the search results. And now, according to the agency, the corporation is working to show more relevant information on the most relevant topics in the media.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Google changed its search results for issues related to the new virus and made medical images and data more visible. Thus, the company simply decided to move away from the format of a regular web link. This strategy has spurred a similar approach to other news topics.

Earlier it was reported about the Big Moments project, which the IT giant is working on. Specifically, the system will determine what information to show in search results for high-profile events, three sources told The Information. Google is expected to provide more details on important events, highlighting facts from the most authoritative online sources. At the same time, according to Bloomberg, while work on the project is being carried out in experimental mode.

The Twitter platform has been the most successful in providing up-to-date information. Google acknowledged this a few years ago, and in 2015 entered into an agreement with Twitter that allowed relevant tweets to be displayed at the top of the SERP.

“Secret” said that in October, a function in case of robbery appeared in Google smartphones. The company has expanded the functionality of the Personal Safety app in Pixel smartphones. It added the ability to record and save video in emergency situations. The function can be activated by pressing the power button five times in a row.
