Google Search Gets Activity Cards to Pick Up Where You Left Off

We may earn a commission when you click links to retailers and purchase goods. More info.

Beginning today, Google Search users will see activity cards at the top of certain search results, allowing you to dive directly back into previous search categories.

For example, let’s say you search for “healthy eating” to kick off 2019 the right way. You may find some helpful information in there, but don’t have time to digest it all. Google will essentially bookmark your search, then allow you to dive directly back into whatever it is you were looking at previously.

As Google explains, “You’ll find links to pages you’ve visited in the past along with searches you’ve done. From there, you can easily click back to that recipe that you tried and loved, or re-issue a search to discover new facets of that topic.”

If for any reason you want to mark a page to read or reference later, you can touch and hold the link to quickly add items on your activity card to a Collection. Users can access Collections by tapping the menu on the top left of the Search page (on mobile web), or through the bottom bar of the Google app.

You’ll find these new activity cards rolling out on mobile search starting today!
