Google’s Knowledge Graph Now Includes Car Knowledge
Google has added cars to the Knowledge Graph. It will now show you info about vehicles you search for just like it will for actors, musicians, food, medicine, etc.
“You may already use Google to help you make everyday decisions, like what restaurant to pick for dinner or which movie to go see. Starting today, you can also rely on Google’s Knowledge Graph to research a big decision: cars,” says Google in a Google+ post.
“Rely” might be a strong word, considering the erroneous information that the Knowledge Graph has been serving up from time to time, but it should at least make for a helpful jumping off point when starting your research.
“Say you’re thinking of buying a new 2014 Mazda3—just tap the microphone on your Google Search app or search for [2014 Mazda3] to instantly see facts like what size engine it has, its MPG and pricing for different configuration,” Google says. “To explore other cars, select one listed under ‘People also search for’ and your results will update to show you specific information.”
So far, the feature is only available on Google.com in the U.S.
