Google's Search App Is Getting a Big Update

Google has taken steps to prevent another massive phishing attack

Critics also say that social media sites allow fake news to spread, though Facebook and Google have taken steps to combat that. As a result, everyone still calls this Google Now. According to Google, the feed can display videos, articles, movie reviews and practically any other update that its algorithms reckon will fall into the reader's area of interest. Multiple reports claim that the search eventually plans to extend its availability beyond Android and iOS to the web in a bid to target desktop users. In the same way as Facebook, Google will surface articles from across the web and present them in a single scrolling screen. "It will just be without a query".

If you're looking for a cool new app today, there are already 14 different themes to go through. Google has also included a "follow" button so that a user can save their favorite personalities, series or events. If I need to do a search I simply do so inside the Safari (or Chrome) browser, so see no need to ever open up the search app.

Google noted that the new feed experience is available in the Google app for Android (including the Pixel Launcher) and iOS, launching today in the USA and rolling out internationally in the next couple of weeks. You can see what this looks like in action below. In the first-quarter of 2017, Google's parent company, Alphabet, generated $21.4 billion in ad revenue. Users "Like" and "Follow" various Pages and People on Facebook to see relevant content in their News Feed.

Other tech companies have come to similar conclusions. Soon, you'll also be able to tell Google you want to follow a certain topic with a new Follow button that appears after you do a Google search.

What's happening to the information previously found in Google Now? Over the past few months, Google Now has been angling itself more and more towards content and interests, and today, Google has announced that Google Now, at least the name, is being replaced with the "Feed". The new feed doesn't yet support advertising, but there's a good chance that this will change given how well the card-based interface could lend itself to showing promotions.

Gomes said the new feed will not include paid content at the onset, but he did not rule that out in the future.

The feed initially launched in December, but Google says it has since advanced its machine learning algorithms to better anticipate what's interesting and important to each user.

The Google feed's greatest flaw is its lack of depth.
