The Lens icon should appear on your screen which you can tap to find out more details about objects, tracking down information like where to buy them or even just what they are.

It's all thanks to the vaunted Page Rank algorithm we've all heard about.

How AMP stories in search works: Google has been incorporating more images and video in its search results for years, and AMP stories is a continuation of that effort.

I've never seen this before, Google showing a double URL in a single search result snippet.

Google reps told me they're rolling this feature out very slowly, and that while the results are algorithmic, Google will keep an eye on them. The changes will be rolled out on a gradual basis. This new version of search will be powered by Artificial Intelligence. Users can also delete pages from the activity card.

The announcements are part of the tech giant's 20th anniversary celebrations, which have been going on throughout September.

For Google's twentieth birthday celebration, it's getting some huge changes.


Google launched an Australian specific home page in 2002 on the google.com.au domain, four years after the main site launched.

"Providing greater access to information is fundamental to what we do, and there are always more ways we can help people access the information they need".

Initially, Google's office was a dorm room in Stanford which was later brought to California's Mountain View making it the headquarter of Google. Relevant videos will start playing in results, one after another.

This means that the "Discover" feature which was previously only available on the Google mobile app will now be seen in the browser too. If you type in something about what to see while in New York, videos of the New York City skyline, the Statue of Liberty and other destinations might show up in this new box. The ever-evolving Google Feed has officially been rebranded to "Discover". Last month, Google rolled out job-search tools for military veterans.

The key focus seems to be around surfacing more videos and fresh visual content and what Google claims to be evergreen content, described as articles and videos, that aren't new to the web.

The concept is that Google will find out what you are planning and the search pages you have visited. She said the objective of these progressions was to enable clients to discover data outwardly and enhance particular image searches: such as when individuals search for items, search for interior decoration ideas, or DIY ventures.
