Google Announces Updates

May 15, 2009

Google announced new features at the Searchology event. Google announced its new set of features called Search Options, which are a collection of tools that let users generate different views to find what they need. The Search Options panel also gives the ability to view results in new ways. One view gives users more information about each result, including images as well as text. Google also announced a new tool called Google Squared. Google Squared automatically finds and organizes facts from across the internet. Google will be opening it up to users later this month on Google Labs. In addition, Google announced the "Wonder Wheel," a graphical way to explore topics by clicking on related searches that go deeper into the subject of the main query.
