Google is testing a new search engine interface

Google decided to update the design of the search engine, getting rid of the usual layout of the “News”, “Pictures” tabs , “Video” and others. The new look is already found on some computers and mobile devices.

Google now offers advanced search suggestions instead of the usual search sections. They are located on the usual plate under the input line. For example, if a user googles “smartphones”, the engine will suggest “under $300”, “new”, or “Samsung”.

However, the traditional search sections have not completely disappeared, they can be found in the same pile with query completion options. Therefore, the user will have to scroll through a horizontal ribbon of hints to find the desired category. -7e3f45e.jpg” alt=”Google is testing a new search engine interface” />

Users who were lucky enough to test the fresh design criticized the innovation. Most of the complaints are related to the lack of intuitiveness of the interface and regular bugs. For example, the search engine offers people from the USA to search for goods in Indian rupees. Another major drawback of the innovation is the inability to sort search results by publication date, which is sometimes extremely important.

While the new interface is undergoing limited testing, its large-scale implementation is not reported.
