Google Search Now Have A More Robust Redesigned Stock Card With Tabs

The stock card that shows up in Google Search whenever you search for basic financial information on a publicly traded company received a major redesign, with Alphabet’s subsidiary revamping the majority of its interface in an effort to streamline it and make it more accessible to users. The most notable change compared to the old version of the service is the inclusion of tabs which allow you to quickly browse through several basic types of information. The “Overview” interface is relatively similar to the previous one, save for the fact that icons denoting historical data are now rounded when tapped, the graph itself is green instead of blue, and some fonts are slightly darker, though they’re still gray and not black. 

The “News” section is largely self-explanatory and seemingly presents you with an excerpt from Google News that you would get if you searched for the same company using Google’s news aggregator, with Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) being featured more prominently than other types of content that’s slower to load. The next tab is essentially a comparison service which allows you to easily contrast the stock you searched for against shares of companies operating in the same industry. Tapping the “Compare” button once will simply present you with a list of such firms from which you’ll be able to select which entities you want to compare to the original stock. The final tab is called “Financials” and provides you with a succinct summary of the company you inquired about, including its age, founders, top executives, and address(es).

The “Overview” interface also presents a carousel of smaller cards which can be used for comparing any stock to similar shares situated beneath the graph denoting historical stock value, with the service itself looking like a more limited version of the “Compare” tab. Google has been experimenting with the new design since at least mid-September but the look is now rolling out more widely and has been confirmed to be live in parts of Europe and the United States on Android devices. No sightings of a similar redesign of the desktop version of Google Search have been recorded as of this writing. The Mountain View, California-based internet giant has yet to announce the change in an official capacity and may do so once the revamped service is available in all parts of the world.
