Few things Google likes as much as making incessant adjustments to Discover, the section of the Google application -and Google Chrome- were news that may interest you are displayed, based on the profile that Google has of you and your interests. It recently changed its design and is now testing changes with thematic content.
Google Discover has always classified the topics shown in categories, although they were quite hidden. In the latest test, the topics of each article are displayed under each article and are clickable. Tapping on them opens a page with content focused on that topic.
Google Discover, sometimes also called Discover, started out as a somewhat random collection of articles you might be interested in. Over time and as you show your interest in certain topics, the results are adjusted, but otherwise, it’s still a significant potpourri. If you like motorcycles, poodles, and tennis, you’ll see these topics and others mixed together in Google Discover in the Google app, Google Chrome, and the launcher.
The latest test gives you a little more control over what you see in Discover. Below each article are the associated topics as hashtags (but without hashtags). The cool thing about it is that you can tap on those topics to access a page that shows news only on that topic.
That is, if you see a news item about a motorcycle in discover and you tap on the “motorcycles” pill, Discover’s news will be filtered by that topic. A few months ago we saw a similar test in which these topics were displayed as hashtags and were not clickable, so this evolution at least serves to delve into a topic that we want to see more content, without having to resort to the search engine or dive through the entire list.
As always, this is an active test for a few users who have installed version 12.28 beta of the Google application or higher.
