Google Search was once merely a place that listed relevant websites depending on your queries, but these days, the engine provides many details right within the results, saving you a few taps and clicks.

These days, Google Search isn't only a great tool for finding websites that give you whatever information you're looking for, it also offers some insightful results right below the search bar, like definitions provided by the Oxford dictionary. For some words, these entries can quickly become convoluted, though, especially when they change their meaning when applied to different contexts. To make it easier to sift through these, Google Search now lets you filter results by topic for some words. Read More
Celebrations for the festival of colors, Holi, are on in the Indian subcontinent, with Google also partaking in its own way. The company’s digital take on the festivity includes an Easter egg on its search results screen that lets you splash the entire page with paint. After you’re done creating a multicolored mess like a kid (which is actually fun), an option will help you clean the screen and carry on with your dull day as if nothing happened.

Over the past few weeks, Search stepped up to become your how-to guide, watchlist manager, and even a widget to track your packages. To maintain that flow and make the results page visually appealing, Google is now adding website favicons against each result for desktop searches. Read More
Google may work on hundreds of different projects these days, but its core product remains Search. The company keeps improving this vital part of its enterprise with small changes all the time, though every once in a while, it has bigger news to share.

When your job relies on the timely delivery of packages at a regular interval, keeping track of all the incoming and outgoing mail can be a bit of a challenge. Back in the day, Google Now made it pretty easy, but Google killed that as it did so many other useful tools. Today the company has announced a new "Package Tracking Early Access Program" that promises better package tracking integration for more parcel delivery companies via Search itself. If it seems familiar, that's probably because some of us have had identical USPS integration for some months now. Read More
