The Google app is used by over 800 million people every month. This new stories carousel will sit at the top of users’ Discover feeds. It’s currently only available in the US, India and Brazil. But they do have plans to expand to other countries.
Web Stories help you to discover the best visual content from around the web. It’s easy to browse through the different stories. The setup is very like the story features on Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook. You click a story to start, it then becomes full screen and you can tap to move through slides. You can also swipe to move onto the next story.
Unlike Instagram this feature doesn’t contain user generated content, It’s more like the news stories you get on Snapchat. But unlike Snapchat, it’s news from across the internet and not just select outlets.
