For some reason, Google wants lots of celebrities to record selfie videos

Google's New Search Feature Will Make Asking Questions So Much More Fun

Google today is launching a new search feature that will have celebrities answering commonly searched questions about themselves in the form of selfie videos that show up at the top of mobile search results. This new category of results are called "Answered on Google" with the question listed below the video with an accompanying tag of the question's category, including Most asked on Google, Trending, and Google Fan. It's unclear just how many questions each celebrity answered.

Google is planning to expand this feature "in the next few months" to offer these selfie-style videos from even more famous people. In the past, Google has allowed brands and other personalities to post directly to Google but only with text entries.

You can pause a video once it starts by tapping on your screen, and swiping through the cards near the bottom or letting the video finish playing will take you to the next question. The company has never figured out how to build a successful social platform of its own, having instead brought us creations like the overly-engineered Google+, and various social app failures, like group chat app Spaces.

Google notes that these results are "coming directly from the source". The feature will be available in Google's mobile app and on the mobile web across iOS and Android in the United States.
