Google brings an interesting improvement to its browser search engine. From now on it is possible to “scroll” continuously on the first page, a bit like in social networks. The extra pages don’t go away, but become more subtle.
Google is gradually improving its services and today it is its desktop search engine that is affected. Additional pages during a request are now more discreet and navigation becomes smoother.
The engine will indeed benefit from a new feature, “continuous scrolling”. or continuous scrolling. In concrete terms, this means that when you type a search query into Google, you can scroll down the page to find endless more information.
Google introduces continuous scrolling
By continuing to scroll, the user will be able to see the equivalent of four pages before arriving at the end of those he consults. If he wants to know more, he just has to click on the button See more for additional results. A camouflaged second page, but one that fits the logic of an infinite thread.
It’s a novelty that doesn’t drastically change the user experience, let’s face it, but this makes navigation smoother. It is inspired by social networks of the likes of Tik Tok, Twitter or Instagram, which also offer an infinite thread. This isn’t new to Google, as the mobile version of the engine has been offering the same thing since last October.
For now, this new feature is reserved for only a few people. Google has not provided any further information on its deployment, which could very well happen in the coming days or in several months. In any case, it’s a sign of the Mountain View company’s desire to harmonize usage across both mobile and desktop devices.
Google has a habit of improving its software and websites in small increments, tweaking details to improve the overall experience. For example, a few days ago the Messages application welcomed some very nice new features, the same goes for the Pixel 7 which now has a built-in VPN and clearer calls in terms of sound. A strategy that pays off.
