Google adds ‘Stories’ to its search app for iOS and Android

─ News ─

Google announced today it’s introducing a Stories feature to its Google app for iOS and Android, which now reaches more than 800 million people per month.

In a new carousel within the app, users in supported markets will be presented with a row of tappable visual Stories from participating publishers. These Stories can include full-screen video, photos and audio, and can link out to the publisher’s other content, if desired.

Users will see the row of Web Stories at the top of the Discover tab, where they can tap to enter the full-screen Story experience. Like Stories found in other apps, you can tap to move forward to the next page in a Google Web Story or swipe to move to a different Story in the carousel.
