You may notice a difference in the looks of Google Search in the coming days. The big G is adding many new tools in search results to help you verify the information ahead of International Fact-Checking Day on April 2. In a blog post, the search giant announced the rollout of features to help with fact-checking information when you search for something on Google search. One of the new tools that the company introduced is “Perspectives.” 

“Perspectives” is a new box that presents “a range of journalists, experts, and other relevant voices on the topic you're searching for” that will appear under the “Top Stories” section in results. The company says this feature will soon debut in English in the US and will be available for Google Search on the web and mobile app.

Google says that “this feature will give you a variety of noteworthy voices on a news topic, complementing the trustworthy reporting you already find on Search to help broaden your understanding. As with all our features for news, we're committed to bringing you authoritative and trustworthy information.”

About this result

Besides this, Google added an “About this result” tool now available globally. With this tool, you will notice three dots next to the result when you search for something. Tapping those three dots will show you a window that informs you about the information you are seeing with the site's description, index date, and other details that helps provide more context about the source. The Mountain View giant says this tool will be available in all languages in the coming days.
