Google Search "carousel" highlights the most recent news

Starting today, Google Search will highlight a publication’s latest posts when you search for a news story.

Today, Google is pushing out a new update to its mobile search platform, designed to group a publication’s most recent content on your topic of choice together into a single, easy to peruse list.

If you query a particular topic, news item, or even a sports team, Google Search for mobile will now display a “carousel” of recent articles and videos on the subject, exactly like in the GIF at the top of this page. However, Google only appears to pick from a single source for each search result, so you won’t necessarily find all of the content that you’re after located in the carousel.

The feature doesn’t apply to all websites either, so you might not see a full selection of results appear for all your usual sites. Google plans to bring the new search feature to additional websites in the near future.

Google has already brought a couple of other features to its mobile search platform this year, including information regarding health conditions and a new mortgage payment calculator.

Have you spotted the new carousel news feature, what do you think about it?
