Google Lets Users Continue Previous Searches With New Activity Cards
January 09, 2019 / Matt Southern
Google has created new activity cards designed to help people to pick up where they left off in the search. Activity cards will appear at the top of search results for logged-in users when looking for a topic they’ve previously searched for. The cards will contain links to previously visited pages, along with a carousel of queries that led to those pages. Users can save links in an activity card to a collection by long-pressing on them. Collections can be accessed by tapping the menu on the top left of the Search page (on mobile web), or through the bottom bar of the Google app. Google says these cards are intended to help people with tasks that require more than just a simple query.
