It's been nearly ten years since Google rolled out the first related search suggestions.

In addition to these confirmed updates, it appears Google is also testing a new feature that displays a carousel with a list of answers directly within the search results snippet, as we reported earlier today. Now, Featured Snippets will include more images of the subject, along with links to related search topics on the bottom.

Snippets which are algorithmically generated highlights of popular content aims to answer questions and queries from what's already available on the web. Searches might surface data from your email, past purchases, and more.

Google has been quietly improving its Search app by working on three different features that make it easier to learn about the topics that you have an interest in learning more about.

Having added the "related searches" feature nearly a decade ago, Search today is able to do much more than it was originally catered towards.

Google has rolled out a redesign to its search functionality aimed at making the interface more intuitive for shoppers.

Google has also updated Knowledge Panels in Search to show related content. Thus, with this example, you might see related search links for players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Zinedine Zidane. Google can recognize when you're searching for multiple things or people within a particular topic and offer search content based on that.

Google is currently rolling out the new improvements, so they should start showing in your Search app any time now.
