As of Monday though, that last method just got a little more interesting.
Why? Because Google recently built a new search results snippet for weather, which makes your results more user-friendly. Let’s take a look at what’s changed because of this latest news.
Here’s a quote from the Google Mobile Blog:
We’d been wanting to build a fun, useful, app-like way to display weather information on our search results pages in the mobile browser. So we pulled together a user experience designer and team of engineers and built a new weather search results snippet that lets you actually play with the results.
You don’t have to do anything differently in order to get the new results. To try it out, just go to google.com on your iPhone or Android-powered device and search for “˜weather’ to see the changes.
What Has Changed?
The stuff you’re used to seeing, like current conditions and a forecast for the next few days, isn’t going anywhere. But now when you move the slider over to view the next 12 hours, you’ll see a detailed hour-by-hour breakdown of the changing weather conditions. Humidity, temperature, and wind speed are all shown and you can see how they’re expected to change throughout the day. The background color also changes throughout the day to reflect these changes.
Like the old method better? No worries, you can still scroll further down to see the search results like you usually do. Google also states that “this new weather search experience is available only in English, but we have more updates on the way.”
