This means that the "Discover" feature which was previously only available on the Google mobile app will now be seen in the browser too. Not sure what to make of this change, but Google says they feel it's going to be a place "where you cannot only search, but also discover useful, relevant information and inspiration from across the web for the topics you care about most". Now, Google will integrate Lens directly into searches "to make your search experience more visual", Cathy Edwards, director of engineering for Google Images, said in a blog post. Tapping on the topic lets you explore that specific topic, providing more articles relevant to that topic, including videos and more visual content.
Among other new features, Google is also introducing a "topic layer", which will help power its related suggestions.
Finally, Google has a new job search tool called Pathways, which doesn't just point you to job listings but also training programs. Google also says they will start delivering more content that they think you have not seen even if it is older content.
The new "Activity Cards" enable users to retrace search steps through cards that are only to them, which allow them to quickly return to recent searches.
Google demonstrates its newest search features, include activity cards, smart videos and Google Lens, at its 20th-anniversary event on Sunday in San Francisco.
Discover replaces Feed in the Google app, and will appear at google.com on mobile devices.
One of the innovations will be history by the type of Instagram that Google will give search results.
Discover also brings support for multiple languages across cards, letting you view your interests in your preferred language. That's what pushes us forward to continue to make Search better for our users.
It would be cliched to say that Google has transformed the world in its 20-years of existence, perhaps because it is true.
"Our work here is never done". Also improving image results is Google Lens integration, which can scan the image (or part of it) and tell you more about it.
Featured Videos: Google will now show you selected videos related to the topic you've searched for, as well as related sub-topics.
As the company marks its 20th birthday this month, it will spend some time looking back on what it has accomplished in the past two decades, starting with the 10th birthday of Chrome.
