Google Search Results On Android Now Include Video Previews
Google today said it is rolling out short video previews in search results. The videos will be lined up in a carousel located high in the results list. Users can slide the carousel back and forth to choose which videos to watch. For now, the short previews will only play when you're on a WiFi network. Users can choose to enable video previews on mobile networks if they wish, or opt out of video previews all together. Google believes giving video results higher priority in search will help people find certain types of information faster, particularly "how-to" and similar queries. Video previews are slowly hitting the Google app for Android and Chrome on Android starting today, with a wider rollout planned for next week.
