Following the launch of activity cards last year, Google is now updating them to focus on jobs, recipes, and online shopping.
If you find yourself going back to Google Search to ask the same questions, over and over again, Google knows how you feel. Whether you search for a specific recipe that you never write down, or check for updated listings, going back all the time seems more tedious than it should.
To help out, Google launched activity cards last year, letting you “pick up where you left off.”
Now, Google is updating activity cards “to focus on three areas that are especially important today—jobs, recipes, and online shopping.” But that’s not all. When finding something isn’t enough, Google is adding the ability to take the next step as well – to buy something, apply for that job, or actually cook that recipe.
The shopping activity card will now show you products that you’ve been researching, even if it was just featured in an article you read. This way, it becomes a lot easier to find it again and compare it with other products you might be interested in.
The jobs activity card now makes it easier to stay on top of new opportunities and remember the roles you’ve applied to, by showing you new and relevant postings that have appeared since you last searched.
The recipes activity card has been updated to show more relevant recipes related to a search. We all know the feeling of searching for the same recipe over and over again, and the update will help make meal planning easier. For example, when you search for chicken recipes, you will also get related recipes you’ve recently visited – complete with a thumbnail preview to help you choose the right one.
