Google has added a new “activity cards” feature to mobile search in a bid to help you get even more out of the tool.
It lets you pick up a search from where you left off by showing links to pages that you’ve visited before.
You can also store links for quick access later.
It should be useful for those times when you’re trying to complete a longer-running task, which according to Google’s Andrew Moore could include things like “meal planning for a new food regimen, researching new stretching routines for post-gym recovery, or picking up a new hobby.” We can also see it coming in handy for when you forget to save that killer recipe to your bookmarks and need to find it quickly instead of trawling through loads of other pages for the same dish.
Well, if you tap a repeat query into the search box, you’ll see a “your related activity” card appear with links to pages that you’ve visited before, saving you having to scroll through lots of results if you’re looking for that same page again.
“If you’re logged into your Google account and search for topics and hobbies like cooking, interior design, fashion, skincare and beauty, fitness, photography, and more, you may find an activity card at the top of the results page that provides easy ways to continue your exploration,” Moore wrote in a post explaining the new feature.
