Google Search for Web is reportedly testing a row of square cards on the homepage to show stocks and markets, trends, weather and what to watch, among other things. A few users tweeted about the change, saying that logging into Google.com again after clearing browsing history showed the home page with the square cards. Google has previously made updates to Search and News in an effort to curb the spread of misinformation. In March, a report also indicated that Google Search will be able to let users find doctors’ availability for scheduling their health checkups, without having to use a third-party solution.

A few months ago, Google introduced updates to Search and News in an effort to curb the spread of misinformation. Last year, it also tweaked Search to notify users of rapidly evolving stories and added an About This Result section.
This feature is currently available in more than 20 languages. Now, in English searches in the United States, these notices will also provide users with information on how to evaluate online news results. Google also shared tips for users to make reliable use of online fact-checking tools.
In March, Google Search would also have the ability to let users find doctors’ availability for scheduling their health checkups, without having to use a third-party solution. The update was demonstrated Thursday at Google’s second annual healthcare-focused event The Check Up.
