Google's new 'carousel' feature for mobile search highlights recent articles and videos

Google has rolled out a new carousel feature to search on mobile today. The carousel surfaces recent articles and videos that you might be interested in when you search a specific topic or publication (such as, say, Android Central).

From Google:

When you search for a topic, just scroll down to see a "carousel" of recent articles, videos or more on that subject. Tap any link to read or watch exactly what you're interested in. For example, if you search for NPR, you'll see links to all their latest articles and videos. Search for the Knicks to browse content from their site as well as videos and news from ESPN or Bleacher Report.

The feature should be live for everyone right now, but Google does note that some sites may not be covered yet. Rest easy, however, as the feature already works with content from Android Central. What more could you ask for?

  • I love AP and their "APK Teardowns" hands down the best Android site, with AC a close 2nd ;)
  • This reminds me of what facebook is doing in thier app.
  • +1 for AP. Wish AC didn't trinkets their articles so I can't see the full article in Feedly or Pocket. Very frustrating when I try to save an article to Pocket for offline reading on a plane and all I get is the first paragraph. Total buzz kill. That's why AP is in my Must Read section and AC no longer is.
