Google is more advanced now. You will not have to find out the text you’re looking for. It will be ready to be read in front of you. According to Engadget, “Google searches with quotes just became much more useful if you’re looking for the exact place words appear on a page. The internet giant has updated quote-based searches with page snippets that show exactly where you’ll find the text you’re looking for. You might not have to scroll through a giant document just to find the right phrase.”
A benefit for researchers
The new feature will not only help the regular users but also the researchers as it will “help people assess whether the information they see about a rapidly evolving topic is legitimate. It will suggest actions such as checking the publication date and searching the author’s name to find out if they’re credible. Taking information at face value is rarely the wisest approach, so it’s good to see Google encouraging users to dig a little deeper.”
The new feature is only available for people who are signed in to their Google Account.
Google said, “You can customize Google News to get more stories you want, like updates from your favorite sports team or new stories about specific topics like technology or space exploration.
To get more or less stories you want:
- Follow or unfollow an interest like a topic, place, or publication.
- Like or unlike specific stories about a topic or from a source.
- Hide stories from a source.”
They also said, “Your Google Account saves your searches and other activity across Google products to My Activity. Google News can personalize your news based on some of those activities. Learn how to view & control activity on your account.” The internet giant has tried its best to make it more acceptable for the user. It will be interesting to see how the new features are being accepted by the users.
