Google announced last month that it was going to Shut down Google+ for consumers as a result of a privacy bug. While admitting the failure of the the company’s social networking service in terms of expectation, it’s obvious that in recent months that the company still have interest in social media services.
The new feature which the company targets is the Search engine itself, introducing an upcoming ability for users to drop comments in Google Search.
This means, you’ll be able to drop comments on things you’ve searched for like sports game without you visiting the website.
The feature would be limited to live sports matches (at first), but it would separate feedback from both pro commentators and viewers and would include filters to highlight the top comments. And yes, there would be moderation to cut down on spam and other abuse.
This “Comments” section does not yet appear to be live for several sports we’ve searched; however, there are no live games to check from at the moment. The domain for Comments is currently limited to sports, and somewhat makes sense given how Google Search is frequently used to find live match results.
