Now Your Favorite Celebrities Will Answer Your Google Searches

The idea, from what I can gather, is that you can ask Google's mobile search engine a question about some person of note, and if-and this strikes me as a very big "if"-this celebrity had the forethought to know you were going to ask this question, the results will surface a selfie video of their answer". From the sound of it, Google may been inspired by Wired's new video series that asks celebrities to answer commonly Googled questions about themselves. The company is now focused on mobile, but says it will eventually bring the feature to desktop search as well. This year, Google expanded the feature to organizations like museums, sports teams and leagues, and people and firms associated with movie-making, later followed by local businesses. In the Google app, the new bottom bar remains. This in-line video player - which is now limited to the mobile apps and site - is a possibly major sea change in terms of searching and finding results on Google.

While Google has historically updated its search results to return answers and information beyond the world of text-based web pages, these celeb videos have a tinge of social envy to them, on Google's part.

Given it can't seem to build a real social platform, it's now trying to make Google Search itself feel more social, it seems. Users will also be able to view the video in fullscreen mode.

So far, these celeb videos are only appearing in the Google mobile search results, not in the Google mobile app.
