Google May Be Testing Out A New Design For Mobile Search
A recent discovery made in iOS and Android later recorded suggests that Google will make changes to its mobile search user interface.
As shown in the image below – which was captured by Redditor Shadow53558 – the changes are significant, especially since they add a significant amount of design language to company materials.
Also included are some settings that seem to be designed to make Google’s mobile search experience a much more useful and intuitive experience.
Of course, it should be noted that all or none of these changes over time could be finalized and enforced from the user side, at least until Google officially reveals the changes.
The first thing that users would realize that the new design is that the search results appear on the cards in a way very similar to how Google Now is configured to search.
If and when the visual review affects Android consumers, this separation should differentiate between results and related much easier.
Google took this concept even further by choosing to show the link address itself to the top of each card so that users can easily see what information site card come.
The bar now familiar colored dots also appear to the right of this link. Unfortunately, at this stage, there is no way to verify exactly what function, if any, is used because it does nothing about it.
Points could provide the means of another contextual action, be used to inform the user of the specific state of the link, or could simply be used as an additional separation layer between the separate search results.
Since the above mentioned points do not appear in sponsored ads, they could also be simply a more clear indication as to what results are not paid for, but there are a number of other things that company like Google might use them for that.
In addition to the obvious visual changes, there seems to be less than the results for better paid after a search by source.
For now, it seems that the new user interface discovered inadvertently could be part of a test. That said, it is possible that this is something that Android users will notice in the future on their devices.
Anyway, the changes seem they would bring a great improvement to the mobile search experience generally take things besides the results of Google Now.
