Google's always testing out new features here and there for making its many services as great as can be, and the latest one has to do with its bread and butter, Google Search.
It's kind of like Wired's video series, in which celebs team up in pairs to answer frequently asked questions about themselves. The feature is now being piloted on mobile in the United States, the company says. Google announced the roll out of the feature via a blog post on Thursday. According to Google, the celebrities are answering the "most-asked questions", but didn't divulge the metric of this calculation. These celebrities will be a mix of rising stars and well-established personalities.More news: Brexit Irish border deal possible within hours
Celebrities that you'll find video responses from include Priyanka Chopra, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, Allison Williams, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo and Dominique Ansel. These videos will remain self-recorded to maintain the originality of the concept.
Google today is launching a new search feature that will have celebrities answering commonly searched questions about themselves in the form of selfie videos that show up at the top of mobile search results.More news: Unbiased Equity Research: Target Corporation (TGT), Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
