Discover is, most likely, the new news and content bank that many users use on their Android smartphones and even on iOS (iPhone). That’s where we find the articles that we want to read, or that Google thinks we will want to read.
As its name implies, Discover is a platform for discovering new content, and is about to receive a major design change from Android 12 and also to iOS. Something that can foster more appealing titles and images.
Google will change the way we discover articles
First, the “Stories”, the content presented in Discover will no longer be divided into individual cards. Instead, they will be presented uninterruptedly, in a field or plan flat to minimize distractions for the user.
Thus, depending on the theme chosen and applied to the smartphone or tablet (dark or light theme), we will have a gray or white backdrop with the stories to be presented directly. No relief, or rectangle to highlight each “Storie”.
The result turns out to be a somewhat generic presentation of the articles with the best ranking in the eyes of the algorithms. They are content optimized for online consumption, with better readability and other composition tactics valued by Google.
Changes to Google Discover apply to Android and iOS
Second, Google does not want to take advantage of the extra space gained at the expense of individual cards that highlighted each other’s content. It will be a more uniform presentation with the stories to be presented in interruptions.
In fact, quite the contrary, technology will make the brief descriptions that accompanied the articles disappear. The discovery was made by the team of 9to5Google when testing a beta version of the Google app with the results above visible.
This is a significant visual change that will be present in the Android 12 operating system, as well as in the current versions of iOS (iPhone and iPad). The greatest impact is caused by the removal of the description, or summary, of each story / article presented.
We can also look at changing the icon for the contextual menu with more action options for each article. It will move from the three vertical points to a minimalist representation of the option switches.
Discover is present on most Android smartphones
You can find Google Discover on the home screen of Android smartphones by making a swipe or swipe to the left – by dragging the homescreen. Then we see the feed of content presented by the Google Discover platform.
In light of these changes, all the emphasis will be on the featured image and content title, something that will impact the way we consume news and other content.
The changes are already present in the beta version of Discover for Android 12 users (still in the testing phase). Nevertheless, this is the path traced by technology for its platform for discovering news and new content.
