Google keeps you plugged into Olympic schedules, results, videos & more in search results
If you’re looking forward to following the Rio Olympics, which open this week, Google has made some enhancements to ensure that the information you’re after is front and center in search results. When using the Android or iOS Google app, you’ll also be offered an option to receive automatic updates on results.
Google has announced that it will be highlighting three types of information in search results …
- event schedule, medal counts, and athlete information
- results and TV schedules in 30+ countries
- official broadcasters’ event highlights on YouTube in 60+ countries
In addition, it has reminded us of the indoor venue maps it added back in May, and the Olympic-specific data we’ll find in search trends.
