Google adds in-line video Search results, piloting with celebrities to answer questions

08 December 2017

The difference here, however, is that the videos live directly in search, so they'll show up on the mobile web and through Google-owned apps and not just on a standard website video player or YouTube embed.

You can pause a video once it starts by tapping on your screen, and swiping through the cards near the bottom or letting the video finish playing will take you to the next question. Specifically, queries about celebrities that have been answered by the stars themselves.

But why not. Let's have some fun and ask Google if Will Ferrell plays drums. Google considers these "selfie-style videos" as being "uniquely personal, authentic and delightful touch". The idea, from what I can gather, is that you can ask Google's mobile search engine a question about some person of note, and if-and this strikes me as a very big "if"-this celebrity had the forethought to know you were going to ask this question, the results will surface a selfie video of their answer". In the past, Google has allowed brands and other personalities to post directly to Google but only with text entries.

The new feature launched in the U.S. for mobile devices allows her fans to find answers to questions about Priyanka coming directly from the star herself.

All you need to do is type the question that you wish to ask you're the celebrity and they as a result the celebrity will answer your question via a self shot selfie video. As of now, Google has already got in store answers from several celebrities like - Priyanka Chopra, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, Allison Williams, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo and Dominique Ansel.

In the past, Google has offered up videos as the top result.
