We all turn to Google to get answers regarding this and that, and that other thing, and those as well, and eventually there's a point where we get a little curious and we want to know something about the actors and stars that we love. Google usually uses its Knowledge Graph to surface the best and most accurate answer for you, but what if you could get it straight from the horse's mouth. There'd be no denying the authenticity of it, would there?

And that's what Google has done. Starting today, when you search for a few known celebrities, you will see a special Top Questions Answered section at the bottom of their Google card with video cards. Tap on any of them and you'll be taken to a fullscreen view with short selfie videos of them answering either frequently asked questions about them on Google, questions from fans, or trending questions. The feature is being piloted now with:

  • Priyanka Chopra
  • Will Ferrell
  • Tracee Ellis Ross
  • Gina Rodriguez
  • Kenan Thompson
  • Allison Williams
  • Nick Jonas
  • Mark Wahlberg
  • James Franco
  • Seth MacFarlane
  • Jonathan Yeo
  • Dominique Ansel.

Even though it sounds like a gimmick, it's a fun and well-executed one. Very few things in life beat knowing that Mark Wahlberg's go-to dance move is sitting on the couch. The videos are short, don't overtake your search, feel much more personal, and if you had a pressing question, now the answer will come straight from the source. Give it a try, it'll take a few minutes to see all the videos, and you might get a chuckle or two. Google says the feature will roll out to more personalities later.
