Future Google Search will answer questions you haven’t even asked yet

This year googlegle celebrated its 20 year milestone. Now it seems to be looking forward to the next 20 in the form of Google Search.

“As Google marks our 20th anniversary, I wanted to share a first look at the next chapter of Search, and how we’re working to make information more accessible and useful for people everywhere,” says the company’s Search, News and Assistant Vice President, Ben Gomes in a blog post.

According to him, there are three core shifts to what comes next.

More than an answer

Google won’t just provide you with answers for what you search anymore, but also take you on an “information journey”.

“To help you resume tasks where you left off and learn new interests and hobbies, we’re bringing new features to Search that help you with ongoing information needs,” Gomes clarifies.

No more questions

It seems as if Search will also provide answers to questions you haven’t asked by surfacing “relevant information related to your interests, even when you don’t have a specific query in mind.”

Even more images

Search will also become less textual and more visual.

“We’re bringing more visual content to Search and completely redesigning Google Images to help you find information more easily,” Gomes revealed.

These improvements, he assures, are all AI driven.”“AI can dramatically improve our ability to make information more accessible and useful,” he says.

It’s not clear when this “next chapter” will be tangible for users.
