This was initially discovered by a Reddit user who posted the following screenshot.
However, if comments in the r/Google subreddit are any indication, this feature will not be well received.
“That’s just bad. Who would want such a feature? I hope it’s optional.”
“That would just ruin the YouTube experience. Haven’t they done enough with moving the comments.”
“If it only comes up when there are not many results, it’s okay I guess. But if I search something with millions of results I wanna scroll down infinitely :D”
Maybe This Feature Can Be Helpful?
For the sake of hearing from people on both sides, here are some arguments for why the feature might not be as bad as people are saying.
“I don’t know man, sometimes I’m looking for a tutorial but I want a video explaining it, and if it doesn’t exists now I have the option to do a quick Google search in the app.”
“The problem is when I need an answer to a question, and I don’t want to watch someone’s 7 minutes of filler before they answer it, and then ask us to like and subscribe in every way possible for 3 minutes.”
“I might like this. I often do a back to back search like that.”
Admittedly, there are more people advocating against the feature than for it, but there are some valid arguments on both sides.
Clearly some people are running into it though, and Google may ramp up its testing as time goes on.
