Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) seems to be getting serious with its Google searches. Recently, the company introduced a feature which allows users to get recipe suggestions if they search for certain food. First noted by Google Operating System’s Alex Chitu, the new UI is meant to make things even simpler for the users.
Google wants you to cook better
Mr. Chitu explains on his unofficial blog that the older interface just helped the users with the food recipes, but the newer one also allows you to seek suggestions. For example, if a user searches for ‘avocado mayo,’ he would be shown recipes related to this food, along with Google suggestions, such as avocado mayo sandwich, avocado mayo salad and so much more.
Available only on mobile search as of now, this new UI is made possible on the basis of “knowledge graph” collected over past years. When a user searches for a recipe, he/she will be presented a few cards in the search results. On tapping the card, you can get the complete recipe.
Extra filters from Google
Along with the recipe itself, Google suggests what all things can be prepared alternatively. For example, if a user is searching with the term ‘chicken soup,’ he may also be suggested to check ‘vegetable soup,’ ‘noodles soup,’ ‘chicken noodle’ and similar stuff.
Below these suggestions, a user can find “view all” clickable link, which takes to a detailed page that provides recipes of these suggested items.
Google serves the users with variety of choices
Upping its own quotient, Google is constantly working on making the search engine easier and friendlier for the masses. Over the recent past, the company has been working on adding depth and improvement to its search results.
Earlier in September 2016, Google had tweaked the search interface for shoppers.
While the U.S. users are reporting seeing the new UI, several users in other countries, such as India are yet to get a glimpse of this refurbishment. It may be possible that the company will bring out the update in phased manner.
