The Tech giants Google has introduced a new feature which allows the users to write reviews to Movies and Television Shows within Google Search results. As per TechCrunch report, Google has confirmed that the new feature is available on Web, mobile, and the app only in India and that too in English language. Google further said that the reviews submitted by the users are automatically filtered for any inappropriate and offensive content, and any individual user can also report a review if he/she spots something inappropriate in it.
So, let us have a look into this Google’s new feature and how does it work. Well, once a user writes and submits a review, it will be shown in the Knowledge Panel, which is made for many TV shows and movies at the top of the search results on Google. As of now, Google declined to comment on its plans to expand this feature to outside India or not.
However, this new review feature is similar to the Restaurant Reviews contributed by the users, which shows details like store hours, location, busy times and critics reviews of various restaurants in Google’s Knowledge Panel.
If you remember, in the beginning of this month, Google had launched a personalized stream of news articles, videos, and other content, called the Feed. Available on both Android and iOS, this feature was exclusive to Indian users at first. However, Google later rolled out the Feed feature to all the countries. Earlier this week, Google had also rolled out a feature in Search for users in the US to check if an ebook is available to borrow from the local library.
