Back in February, Google introduced AMP content in search results on mobile devices. These appeared in a new carousel that says “Top Stories” on mobile search results pages:
In a post on the Google News blog, Google News engineering director Maricia Scott explains, “So – what’s new? At the top of the page, there is a new AMP carousel filled with important headlines and stories of the day. Users can browse up to 14 headlines there quickly, and click any article to jump into the viewer, which is optimized for fast-loading AMP articles. In the viewer, people can also swipe to continue reading other stories from the carousel. Within the regular News stream, AMPlified articles are labelled with the AMP lightning bolt icon. That way, users can know these will be fast even before they click.”
The update is for English in the U.S. for now. More languages and regions will roll out soon.
