Google has announced five new features for users to verify information on Search. According to a blog post by the company, Google Search will feature new carousels, including perspectives, about this author and also expands the ‘about this result’ carousel globally. 

Perspectives feature

The ‘perspectives’ carousel will appear below top stories to showcase “insights from a range of journalists, experts, and other relevant voices on the topic.” The feature will first launch in the US in English on both desktop and mobile.

‘About this author’ feature

Google search results will also feature an ‘about this author’ field for users to know about the authors behind the content they are reading. The field will provide more background information about the authors. The feature is an expansion of Google’s current ‘about this result’ feature, which was rolled out in 2021.
