Google's homepage gets a new look as Discover rolls out on mobile

Google wants the site to surface relevant information for users by predicting what they're interested in rather than waiting for users to type in a search term.

The newly introduced Discover feed can be accessed on any device that runs iOS or Android, and through any mobile browser, including the most popular Chrome and Safari.

Try not to be astounded if the Google homepage appears to be somewhat unique on your telephone.

Govt may have invoked law to issue directions to RBI
The RBI under Patel has been pushing for more powers to clean up a banking system that's saddled with bad debts. Meanwhile, the government has maintained that RBI has sufficient powers to regulate both private and PSU banks.

Google announced the new feed as part of its 20th anniversary revamp of search on mobile, which replaces today's clean blank page with a search box with many more suggestions, in line with the Google app for iOS and Android. One of the features, an improved version of the Google Feed, which from now on will be called Discover, has just started rolling out in the US on mobile devices that run either iOS or Android. In short, you go to Google.com on your mobile phone either via web browser or Google App, and below the search box are sports scores, news stories and more topics that Google thinks you want to know about even without doing a search. To customize the feed, all you have to do is open the menu on the top-right corner of a particular card and dismiss it to indicate your disinterest in the topic.

Each card shows a cover image, a title, a brief excerpt of the page's content, the name of the site, and the date the content was published.

Every picture in the mobile web version of Google Images now features a Google Lens icon underneath. Clicking the topic displays more related articles and allows users to follow the topic. You won't need to manage cards appearing each time essentially in light of the fact that you found a subject intriguing once. The idea is to proactively show you a preview of the content that you might fancy. It's also live on Google.com. But, as the company plans for the future of search, it's also trying to make its products more friendly to younger users, who might expect search to be as easy to navigate as social media feeds.
