Back in September we spotted Google testing a feature to show searchers a card of past searches and site visits based on those searches. Then Google later that month shared it would be coming. Well, Google is now finally rolling out what they are calling “your related activity” cards in the mobile search results in the US.
Google aims for this to help searchers “Pick up where you left off on Search.” Google said:
You’ll find links to pages you’ve visited in the past along with searches you’ve done. From there, you can easily click back to that recipe that you tried and loved, or re-issue a search to discover new facets of that topic.
If you want to mark a page to read or reference later, just touch and hold the link to quickly add items on your activity card to a collection. You can access your collections by tapping the menu on the top left of the Search page (on mobile web), or through the bottom bar of the Google app.
Here is how it works:
Let’s see how long this feature lasts in the search results. Two years? Less or more?
