Google’s news feed ‘Discover’ will now be available on phone browsers

Google will also begin to show more context with images, including captions that display the title of the web page where each image is published-and they'll suggest related search terms for more guidance.

Google is bringing "Discover" to mobile browsers also "as your new mobile homepage where you cannot only search, but also discover useful, relevant information and inspiration from across the web for the topics you care about most". Don't worry if that sounds like a bit too much: Google says that these cards won't show up for every search result, and you can turn them off as well.

"When you come to Google Images for help on a task, the page where an image lives is important". Just Tap the new Lens button and use your finger to highlight that specific section and the search will be focused on that object only.

The Google search engine is being redesigned for recommended content. 'Discover' update on Google will show videos and other things related to the list of your interests.

To further facilitate and expedite how users search for the information that they need, an activity card will now appear as a thin strip above their searches which will basically contain information about their previous searches and related ones as well.

For now, the Stories will mostly be limited to notable people 'like celebrities and athletes'.

Finally, Google has a new job search tool called Pathways, which doesn't just point you to job listings but also training programs.

Google Images, on the other hand, will show content based on a new ranking algorithm for content which is evergreen such as DIY and recipes.

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 says Discover won't only be for new content either.

The tech giant is celebrating its 20th birthday with a new Google Doodle marking the special occasion. Google is able to parse the content of videos to present purely relevant snippets in a useful way in search, connecting content to categories and topics. We've grown to serve people all over the world, offering Search in more than 150 languages and over 190 countries.

These suggestions are based on what Google knows of the habits in general of the user, but also on what he knows of the particular user, at a minimum, most of the time, the location, the language, the type of device used, but sometimes much longer, depending on the amount of data which the user allowed to access it via the settings that are sometimes very complex. For example, you may want to read sports news in English, but prefer politics in Spanish. It looks and acts similarly to a Pinterest board in that any search you save to it is easily accessible later.

The biggest change to Google Images announced today is the coming addition of Lens for AI-powered exploration of images that appear in search queries.
