Google Search's 'Recent' Feature Will Give Users Option To See Or Reject Their Older Searches

International Business Times

Google has been testing a new feature for its search app over the past two months and now it has rolled it out over the iOS and Android apps and Google.com. The "Recent" tab will allow users to browse through their previous searches so they can find what they are looking for faster and easier. The feature is contextual, so you needn't be worried about going through everything you searched for -- it will group related searches together and let you compare the search results side-by-side. You will also be able to delete the search queries you consider obsolete. You can also access the feature from the navigation drawer of the Google app, Android Authority reported.

Google adds caution to search results on emerging topics

ZDNet

Google is trying to provide more context about search results so users can "more confidently evaluate the information" they find online. To help with this, Google announced it has trained its systems to detect when a topic is rapidly evolving and a range of sources are yet to weigh in. Google Search will now display a notice indicating that it may be best to check back later when more information from a wider range of sources might be available. "Accessing timely, relevant and reliable information is increasingly important in our current environment," Google wrote in a blog announcing the new feature. "While Google Search will always be there with the most useful results we can provide, sometimes the reliable information you're searching for just isn't online yet. This can be particularly true for breaking news or emerging topics, when the information that's published first may not be the most reliable."
