It will also be interesting to see what kind of traffic bump, if any, news sites get as a result of having yet another information feed placed in front of viewers' eyeballs.

Google has started rolling out its new Discover feed to US users visiting google.com on a mobile device. Info cards have been a mainstay of Google's mobile experience for a while, and that isn't likely to change in mobile browsers.

The news feed is accessible in Google's home page on mobile devices and is available in the Google app for iOS and Android.

You'll be able to customize the cards as per your interests using the menu on the top-right corner of each card. You'll additionally discover sports scores, YouTube carousels and comparative cards to provoke your interest. This is already available for Android users on their devices, but it is a first for the feature to appear on Google.com's mobile web and Google app.

The rest of the weight savings comes from the carbon-fiber wheels, titanium exhaust and lug nuts, and a polycarbonate rear hatch. Regardless of this choice, all will get a unique seat pattern with silver stitching that is repeated on the steering wheel.


To that end, the company last week launched Google Lens in Google Images on mobile. You won't find it on the home page for computers, but Google said it does plan to expand the feed to desktop browsers, according to Mashable. If you're planning a road trip across the country or taking some time off in Europe, Discover might show you an article with the best restaurants in that area or suggested places to visit. And if you want to learn more about the topic at hand, you can tap the header to be taken to a list of other relevant articles and videos on the subject.

If you've opened Google.com on your phone lately, you might have noticed it looks a lot different.

Google also introduced Topic Layer, which analyzes content on the web for a specific topic and develops subtopics around it. The idea is to proactively show you a preview of the content that you might fancy. 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.
