Google lets celebrities to answer your search questions

It seems that Google is taking another step to make its core product — Search, more interesting and cool. The Search engine is working on a feature that allows you to have your queries answered by celebrities and other notable figures in form of featured snippets in search results.

The company says that the feature is initially being piloted on mobile with a handful of celebrities for now that includes Priyanka Chopra, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, Allison Williams, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo and Dominique Ansel.

Evidently, the celebrities aren’t answering user’s queries on the real-time basis; instead, Google has had them pre-record their videos. These self-recorded videos share their perspectives and answers to some of your most-asked questions.

The short videos will provide answers to questions like “How many languages does Priyanka Chopra speak?” or “Can Tracee Ellis Ross sing?” and so on. “When you search for your favourite personalities, whether they’re rising stars or well-known celebrities, their answers will appear in the form of selfie-style videos with a uniquely personal, authentic and delightful touch,” the company said.

Google has also hinted that this is just the snapshot of what is coming and but soon more innovation and videos will be added to Search.
