Google is experimenting with the inclusion of a Uncover Feed on its desktop homepage that reveals really helpful content material alongside the corporate’s conventional search field. A screenshot from MSPowerUser, which noticed the change, reveals a feed that features information headlines, a climate forecast, sports activities scores, and inventory info for a trio of corporations. The search large beforehand added the Uncover Feed to its US homepage on cellular gadgets in 2018,
A Google spokesperson confirmed the change in an announcement given to The Verge, noting that it’s an experiment that’s presently being run in India. Any change to google.com is important because it continues to be the world’s most visited web site.
The search large has experimented with its desktop homepage earlier than. Final yr 9to5Google noticed it testing a row of widget-like playing cards on its desktop homepage exhibiting an analogous combine of stories tales, climate forecasts, and inventory info. Nonetheless, it’s unclear how broadly the characteristic was rolled out, and it’s not showing for me within the UK as of this writing.
As MSPowerUser factors out, Google’s experimental interface seems to be just like what Microsoft affords on its search engine Bing, which already incorporates an extended record of stories tales and different info. I’ll all the time have a keenness for the simplicity of Google’s conventional interface, however I’ve to confess I now barely go to the search engine’s homepage after over a decade of with the ability to search immediately from my browser’s handle bar.
