Google celebrates 20th birthday with offbeat doodle

Google Lens will be integrated into the image search. Previously a stand alone app, Google Lens uses AI to identify the contents of a picture without needing words to figure out what it is. Google, in fact, has had to face backlash from privacy pundits across the world, for how it goes about, or at least it tries to go about, meddling with search as and when necessary, allegedly propagating the new-age phenomena of fake news. What comes up on our news feed may or may not pop up in your friend's news feed.

The tech giant is adding a new "Journeys" feature, which is meant to keep track of users' searches about particular topics. When you view an individual image, you'll be able to see more context about it via captions included from the title of the site containing it.

The key focus seems to be around surfacing more videos and fresh visual content and what Google claims to be evergreen content, described as articles and videos, that aren't new to the web.

"It wasn't long ago that if you visited an image's web page, it might be hard to find the specific image you were looking for when you got there". It will also show you featured videos on the basis of your interests.

Lastly, Google is shifting from text to a more visual way of finding information. There will also be suggestions of related topics.

The commemoration of Google's 20 anniversary is also bringing improvements to image searches.

The year the company has made a decision to feature the Google Doodle letter-shape with balloons attached with a gift box.

The first of these concerns were AMP Stories, Google's open source library that helps publishers to build web-based, Snapchat-like flipbooks with insane graphics, animations, videos, and streaming audio.

Google is also responsible for producing android phones and hardware alongside software including Google Earth, Google Search and Google Maps. You don't have to watch a full video for just the 30 seconds that relates to your query.

Google introduces new 'Discover' feature as Search turns 20
Google overhauls search to show more pictures, videos and context

Did you know Google Images was introduced in 2001 and in in 2011 the fastest rising search was for the Rugby World Cup?

Ben Gomes, VP of search, lead off the event with a brief historical overview of Google's mission and approach to organizing information.

Lots of people use Google Search in emergencies, and Google has new tools for that, too, including an AI-based flood prediction model, which should give users more accurate and timely flood alerts.

Next up is something called Activity Cards.

The company's rapid growth since incorporation has triggered a chain of products, acquisitions, and partnerships beyond Google's core search engine (Google Search).

The new "Activity Cards" enable users to retrace search steps through cards that are only to them, which allow them to quickly return to recent searches. You will also see related websites from your previous search.

On the video part, Google is focusing computer vision to "deeply understand" the content of videos and highlight them in Search. The headers are clickable and will take you to additional information on the topic along with an option to start following that topic.

All to make searches easier. It looks a little bit like Pinterest boards.
