Google’s New Journeys Feature Might Help You Recover Your Train of Thought

A lot of people would say that they are familiar with the process of disappearing down an internet rabbit hole. It makes a lot of sense since the internet is full of all kinds of information and suffice it to say that when you find something that interests you, there is a strong chance that you would want to pursue that train of thought at least for a little while.

The main issue with this is that sometimes we tend to lose out on that train of thought and forget where we started our research journeys from. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Google’s new Journeys feature might be of a big help for people that tend to go through something like this on a more or less regular basis by categorizing your search and browsing history.

The way that this works is that your history will be sorted by topic so that you can see what you were looking into when you were interested in the topic in question. The great thing about Journeys is that you can just search for a topic that you had previously been working on and then click on Resume Your Research which would open up all of the related sites that you had opened during your analysis.

You might not like seeing such a blatant representation of how much information Google knows about you, but the fact is that Google does have this information on hand. Since Google already has all of the information that it is now presenting to you, it is at least useful that they are trying to use it to help give you a much better experience with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Many users would be happy to see this feature because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing them to pick up their research and resume it without having to waste time remembering what they had been focusing on a long time ago.
