Aside from this, the Search is improved to let users find the desired food item in any nearby restaurant and order them online of supported. Google will browse through the menus of those restaurants to check your item and surface information about its price, ingredients, etc.

Lastly, Google revamped the AR shopping feature in its Search to include a library of 148 models – to make it easier to find your exact foundation match. The models represent a diverse spectrum of skin tones, ages, genders, face shapes, ethnicities, and skin types, offering you a better visualization of items suiting your body or face.
