The stream of cards in the Google app and to the left of your home screen on the Pixel Launcher has gone by a couple different names over the past few years. First, it was Google Now and then rebranded as the Google Feed. Now, its name is being changed once more to Discover.

The fundamentals of Discover remain exactly the same. You'll see a list of cards related to recent Google searches, Chrome activity, etc. However, the cards are now presented with a refreshed look to make things easier on the eyes.

You'll now see topic headers above each section to make it clear what you're reading about. If you want to dive deeper into that topic, just tap on it and you'll be taken to a new list of articles and videos specific to that one subject. If you want to make sure you stay up-to-date with these topics, just tap the Follow button and you'll be in the know.

Discover will also show you new types of cards, including videos and evergreen content (articles that might have been published a while ago but are now relevant to you based on your Google activity).

Google's also adding controls over how often you want to see certain types of content, support for multiple languages (initially English and Spanish to start out), and bringing Discover outside of the Google app to on all mobile web browsers.

Discover should be making its way to your phone over the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled.
