Google wants its mobile app to be more than just a vehicle for retrieving answers to questions. Thats why the company says it will update the feed section of its main search app with new features designed to make finding information easier and faster. The revised feed wil

Tapping the button ensures that information about the show appears in your feed moving forward.   Google also appears to be changing the way it displays news stories by offering fact-checking sources and related stories underneath some articles. Tapping a cards header will also prompt the app to perform a Google search for that particular topic, a feature that Google hopes will make it easier to dive into subjects of interest.

But as Google Assistant spreads to more devices, including the iPhone, Google seems inclined to tout all the ways its eponymous search app can still be useful. Contact us at
