Google has initiated to show crude product comparisons in Google search results on mobile and desktop.
This feature works for only some kinds of products, such as smartphones, tablets, and gaming consoles.
For example, if you search for “ipad pro vs pixel c” to check how the tablets stack up, Google will show you a card outlining few specifications for base models of the two products which are compared, listed side by side. Other websites contain this sort of information — and much more, certainly — but now it’s at ease to access right from a Google search.
The widget does not accomplished (yet!) of comparing more than two products at once. That could move users to run multiple searches.
The launch of this card of the products is part of an ongoing pattern of search engines trying to answer questions with specific information about certain known entities, instead of producing an endless stream of websites, however relevant search website list might be. And it’s more important now in the age of the Google Home — rather than listing out search results on a display, with that smart speaker and the underlying Google Assistant, Google has begun to take a good guess at what the user is referring to and what they actually want to know about it.
Google did once offer Google Compare, a tool for assessing different credit cards, mortgages, and insurance options. But it was stopped earlier this year.
Google did not immediately answer to a request for comment.
