Google´s search app for iOS and Android has been reinvented to look and feel I bit more like… Yes, of course Facebook.
The new look of the search app, introduced in December 2016, does let you find things easier – sometimes even without having to look for them, which may sound a bit too smart, but Google knows you better then you may think, so the weather, sports scores, and news topics Google thinks are relevant to you, might be exactly what you were looking for.
Certain types of results, such as sports teams or television shows, will also have a “follow” button you can select when you search for it, ensuring you stay in the know.
It´s on mobile phones the most Google searches are made to day, making its search product of huge importance to the company, especially as it competes with Facebook, Amazon, Twitter and others for attention.
If you do not like the look and feel of Google´s new search app, you can always opt out without any issues.
As said, Google may know many of us almost a little too well. Even though this is quite true, you still want to be able to get rid of topics you don´t want to appear. Just click on the three dots in the upper right corner of a card and select “Not interested.”
