Google’s search engine cover will expand its functionality with the ability to add info cards, a cross between the Google Discover style for mobile and the Microsoft Edge cover with this mix of Bing and MSN. You know where the story is heading, right?
According to 9to5Google , tests to implement and polish the concept started at least a few months ago, but they are already advanced enough to completely change the look and feel of the Google search engine home page.
It’s worth mentioning the term “Google search engine homepage” because the original news talks about the “new Google.com” but usually the domain changes depending on the country you’re visiting and it won’t affect the pages anyway results that are most commonly used.
On the other hand, these types of changes are usually first seen on google.com, but in its US version… And one more thing to keep in mind: everything included there will most likely be added eventually. to Chrome’s new tab page, a real milestone for the vast majority of Google and Chrome users.
But what exactly are we talking about? From what has been said: fill in the empty spaces around the search field with “cards” that show the information of interest to the user. For example, weather forecast, latest news, stock information, recommendations for watching new series and movies…
Everything will depend, you see, on the tastes of the user and on how he sets up this function, what Google services he uses, etc.
Presumably, as the feature rolls out to everyone, depending on how successful it is, it will expand with more options because the possibilities are plentiful, as seen in Microsoft Edge. Meanwhile, its appearance will be something like this…
Indeed, nothing is new under the sun. Today, Google goes through life minimalistically with many of its products and services, but that wasn’t always the case. Or no one remembers iGoogle anymore? What momentum life gives, it’s worth once again!
In general, the Google search engine home page is perhaps not the most used site in the world, despite the ubiquity of the service, since most users usually enter the search engine through a new browser tab… But, as noted, what starts there is likely to end there i.e. in Chrome.
It remains to be seen what Google will do with the labels to make it look like it is, but the truth is that there is a place for everything. Let’s see.
