Now Your Favorite Celebrities Will Answer Your Google Searches

Now Your Favorite Celebrities Will Answer Your Google Searches”

Wondering how many languages Priyanka Chopra can speak, whether Tracee Ellis Ross can sing, or if Will Ferrell is actually a good drummer?

This is something that's launching first on mobile, and when asking something such as "Can Will Ferrell really play the drums?", you'll see a video that you can play in which Will Ferrell answers that question directly through a selfie video. According to Google, the celebrities are answering the "most-asked questions", but didn't divulge the metric of this calculation. This new category of results are called "Answered on Google" with the question listed below the video with an accompanying tag of the question's category, including Most asked on Google, Trending, and Google Fan. Initially an experiment during the 2016 US presidential election, Posts on Google lets individuals post Twitter-like status updates right on Google's search results pages. In the past, Google has allowed brands and other personalities to post directly to Google but only with text entries. The feature will be available in Google's mobile app and on the mobile web across iOS and Android in the United States.

In the past, Google has offered up videos as the top result. One could imagine, Google doing more video answers from authoritative sources and organizations for other factual searches.

Given it can't seem to build a real social platform, it's now trying to make Google Search itself feel more social, it seems. Users will also be able to view the video in fullscreen mode.

So far, these celeb videos are only appearing in the Google mobile search results, not in the Google mobile app.
