Poll: Are the Google Discover recommendations relevant to you?
Google Discover has become an integral part of the company’s mobile offerings since its rebrand in 2018. The feed, which appears when you open the Google app or swipe right on the home screen of some Android phones, is populated with cherry-picked content based on your web usage and habits.
According to Android Authority readers, it’s the only newsfeed option they’d use on their home screens and we can largely understand why. For those who frequent specific subjects often, it’s an easy way to keep abreast of new content. If you search for interior design ideas or recipes often, expect to find a ton of content related to the dining room and kitchen in your feed.

In a pinch, Google Discover is supposed to give users a snapshot of the web as they’d like to see it. But for some, this isn’t always the case.
Discover does plenty of predicting when it comes to showing news it thinks you’d like. That can often be hit and miss, especially if you prefer to sample the most current content online. The service tends to recommend pieces that are newer to the user, rather than newer to the web. Yes, you can train Discover to tighten up its offerings to your liking, but this process is clunky and doesn’t always improve its relevancy.
