Google Search is no doubt one of the best ways to find information. But while there’s a plethora of information that the search engine has to offer, getting detailed information on a  specific topic can be a little tricky and can lead to multiple searches. Google understands this problem and now is addressing it through a new update which will help users find relevant and contextual information with one single search.

In a recent blog post, Google explains the new feature with the example of someone redesigning a kitchen, and trying to figure out the difference between quartz and granite for new countertops. When the same query is posed in Google Search, the following results will not only present the user with the difference between the two, but will also provide additional information such as their cost, benefits, durability, and other important things through neatly organized subtopic panels. This will help reduce the number of search queries and also save time.

Similar subtopics are said to be created for other kinds of searches as well. Another example is someone looking for an emergency fund, where the results will further bring in more information recommending size, purpose, and importance of an emergency fund.

Google states that the subtopics will generally be around other popular topics related to the primary search. New panels will be generated automatically based on Google’s understanding of these topics on the web. The update will be rolling out to everyone in the next few days.

Google always keeps updating Google Search in order to keep the experience fresh. Last month, the search engine giant rolled out another update that allows users to discover events around them with ease. Now, when you search for an event and tap on it, Google Search will present you with an overview for it, followed with other details such as ticket prices, event time, venue reviews and location. It’s said to cover all types of events including music concerts, local festivals, cooking classes, standup shows and even Museum shows.
