Google Celebrity Selfie Video Answers Now Appear in Mobile Search

The search giant has neatly taken the most often asked questions in regard to a select group of personalities. And, the company states it plans on adding more celebrities. Currently, Google is working with a dozen personalities, which include:

  • Priyanka Chopra
  • Will Ferrell
  • Tracee Ellis Ross
  • Gina Rodriguez
  • Kenan Thompson
  • Allison Williams
  • Nick Jonas
  • Mark Wahlberg
  • James Franco
  • Seth MacFarlane
  • Jonathan Yeo
  • Dominique Ansel

“When you search for your favorite personalities, whether they’re rising stars or well-known celebs, their answers will appear in the form of selfie-style videos with a uniquely personal, authentic and delightful touch,” Rami Banna explains.

The videos are self recorded and display in-line within search results. These cards include the person’s name, avatar, as well as a verification check mark. This new category is aptly called “Answered on Google,” which places the question underneath. Also, there’s an accompanying tag of the question’s category. Moreover, the cards include “Most asked on Google,” Trending, and Google Fan.

Currently, the new Google celebrity selfie video answers are only available in the United States. But the search engine states it’s just a “snapshot of what’s to come.”
