Google Search is an extremely powerful service we all use each and every day. It’s safe to say Google knows more about us than we’d like. Today however, Google’s calling the new search “the end of search as we know it” as it improves like never before. Google search will now answer, converse, and anticipate. This is the knowledge graph and prediction start-up companies they’ve been buying all leaking out the seams and arriving for us all. More details below.
Starting today Google Search will anticipate your question like never before using their knowledge graph, then of course answer it with ease as they always have. This isn’t just on the PC either, this will be improved on Android with Google Now, same for iOS, and even come full-stride to Google’s Chrome browser.
There’s a lot of information here, but we’ll focus on mobile. Google Search on mobile you can now ask “Where’s my package,” “What’s my flight status”, “What’s my gate code” and more. Google Search, if you allow it, will know way too much about you, but deliver that content when you need it like never before. This will be embedded into Google Search, and all work behind the scenes with Google Now. Speaking of Google Now, here’s some new cards coming soon:
Google Search anticipate wants to tell you the right thing, at the right time, before you ask. Their “anticipate” features in Google Now are the key behind this, coming to all platforms, and getting better by the day. The way we ask Google Search and now questions will be analyzed like never before, anticipated even faster, and delivered where and when we need them. It looks like Google Now, arguably our favorite feature, will only be getting better.
Expect the new Google Search app in the Play Store to arrive momentarily. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
