It's time for new ones feature for the 'mobile application di Google. According to the first information leaked on the net, Big G is experimenting with a new function able to aggregate and see the short video present on the platforms Tik Tok e Instagram, showing them in a single carousel directly within the app.

The website launched the news TechCrunch, subsequently confirmed by a spokesperson for the Mountain View giant who confirmed that the feature is still in the early stages of development. At the moment, the new feature that will fit among those available on the Google app for mobile devices, would also be tested on the web version of the search engine that can be used on smartphone and tablet browsers.

TikTok and Instagram videos on Google: how the app will work

The feature would have appeared a few months ago on Google Discover, anticipating the operating mechanism. By searching through the Mountain View engine, it will be possible to view a carousel, with video content from both Instagram and TikTok, which provides users with the opportunity to view short videos directly from Google, without necessarily having to open the Whatsapp specifications.

At the tap on the video, as reported by TechCrunch, the browser would redirect the user to the web version of the social platform even if the relative application is already available on the device. It is, therefore, a change of course compared to what is happening now, since by tapping on the video the browser opens the social network in its native application, if it was already installed.

Once the navigation within the mobile version of the platform, just tap the back arrow to resume browsing the search results. No more apps open in background to be closed to save memory: everything happens within a single application.
