Google has begun opening to view a significant change to Google Discover. The company has begun releasing new heart icons to Google discover. Google Discover, earlier known as Google Feeds, is a system facilitated by Google to users around the globe to uncover the contents significant to the topics they regularly search in Google.
How we know Google Discover
According to Android Police, in the earlier versions, Google Discover’s icon was in the shape of a circle and two lines placed at the head and at the bottom just beside the hamburger menu. A single nudge on the icon by a user will open the More or Less icon box on Google. More icons will display Google discover and users can take a look at the contents similar to what they usually search for. Users can close discover when they nudge the Less icon placed just below the More icon.

With the release of the new versions, a heart icon will replace the earlier circle and two lines. A nudge on the heart icon by a user turns the heart icon red. Google reported that this icon will work in the way the heart icon works on Instagram, Twitter, and other social media platforms. A heart marked red by a user to any post or content displayed on Google Discover will give feedback to Google to display more contents and posts like the one with a red heart on the user’s Google Discover.
From a broader perspective, the change may seem insignificant, but when you look deeply this is definitely a change in design, and who knows this may be a beginning to a greater change in Google to be unveiled in the near future.
