Google Tests New Format For Its Destination Queries On Apps Like Facebook, TikTok, And YouTube

Google has recently started to test out some new formats for its ‘Destination Queries’ on leading social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok, as spotted by Saad AK.

The new test will not only display Things To Do for users but will also feature a new Discover section in a story-themed format.


For this particular section, in case you didn’t know, the search engine giant can be seen embedding stories from several locations like Facebook, YouTube, and even TikTok. At the same time, there is some news about how more platforms could be included as well.

We’ve got the latest detail thanks to a report by Saad AK who put forward a video recently that saw the feature in action through a Twitter account.

He reportedly witnessed the new Discover section seen across SERPs along with videos taken from apps like Facebook, TikTok, and even YouTube. You could well see this as another feature for short videos, he added.

Many critics aren’t too sure about the new feature but since it’s from a number of trending social media platforms that are famous with the younger generation, we can understand where it’s coming from.
