Google Discover is getting a dedicated section for immersive Web Stories


To check the new attribute, users will need to open Google app on their phone and swipe on the home screen to open the Google Discover feed. Users can navigate through the carousel by swiping right and left and can tap any story they would like to watch.

The story would open up following tapping and users can tap on both sides of the display to cycle through the pages from the story. Swiping left will open up the next story and swiping right will return to previous story. The attribute works like Stories attribute on Instagram and Snapchat but it does not automatically cycle through pages. Users have to tap on the right border of the display to move to the next page, or the same page is going to be played in a loop.

Underneath the tales of Google Discover feed, users may find writer’s title, discuss button and context menu button which will let them open up the help center and send feedback. To close the open narrative, users need to tap “x” icon in top right corner.

Google said in a blog article that they’re working with diverse group of publishers and creation tools in India, US and Brazil to collaborate with Internet Stories and build out the attributes. They said that Web Stories can be produced by anyone and more than 2,000 websites have published Stories which have been indexed by Google.

If someone is interested in learning more about how they could post their own Stories, they could have a look at new site or watch Storytime YouTube series.

The characteristic permits publishers to post short, visually attractive pieces of content that consumers can quickly skim through on their devices. Web Stories from Google Discover are already Reside in India, the US, and Brazil, and they are currently available in English and Hindi. The business intends to expand availability to more areas and add support for more languages soon.

To have a look at the new attribute, open up the Google program on your phone or swipe directly on your home screen to start the Google Discover feed. After that, scroll down beyond the normal news and updates, and you will see the new Stories carousel. You can navigate through the carousel by swiping right or left, and you may tap any story you would like to watch.

Tapping a narrative opens up it, and then you can tap on either side of the display to cycle through all the pages in the narrative. Swiping into the left opens up the next story when swiping to the right will return to the preceding narrative. However, though the feature works a lot like the Stories feature on Instagram and Snapchat, it now doesn’t cycle through webpages automatically. You need to tap on the right border of your screen to move into another page, also it’s going to keep playing the exact same page in a loop.
