Google adds activity cards and collections to Search results

Google Search Collections

Google has shared new features that help you resume tasks where you left off, keep track of ideas and content that you found useful, and get relevant suggestions of things to explore next. The new activity card will help you pick up from where you left off in Search.

Next time When you revisit a query related to a task you’ve started in the past, Google will show you a card with relevant pages you’ve already visited and previous queries you’ve done on this topic. This helps you retrace your steps when you might not remember which sites had that useful information you’d found earlier.

This information will only appear when it’s useful and it won’t appear for every search. You can easily remove results from your history, pause seeing this card, or choose not to see it all together. This new activity card will be available in Search later this year. You can also keep track of the searches  by adding useful content to Collections. Collections in Search help you keep track of content you’ve visited, such as a website or article or image, and quickly get back to it later.

The improved Collections experience lets you add your content from an activity card directly to Collections. This makes it even easier to keep track of and organize the content you want to revisit. Google will start rolling out this new Collections experience later this year.

Google Dynamic Search

The company is also introducing new way of dynamically organizing search results that helps you more easily determine what information to explore next. The best part about this feature is that it continues to stay fresh and learns over time. As new information is published to the web, these tabs stay up to date to reflect what’s most relevant to that topic.
