A brand new coronary heart icon has been noticed in Google Uncover (née Feed), changing the earlier button that triggered the acquainted more/less slider for tuning its content material to raised match your tastes. This is not only a visible change in iconography, both, as tapping the brand new coronary heart button would not open any menu, apparently and easily indicating to Google that you simply appreciated a given piece of content material. Thus far, the change appears to be in restricted testing.
Above Left: The outdated button. Above Proper: The brand new heart-shaped button. Under: The present extra/much less slider.
As talked about, the guts button is greater than only a change within the icon. Beforehand, tapping the dot-and-line icon spat you to the Extra/Much less tuner you see simply above. The 2 choices do virtually precisely what you count on, tuning your Uncover content material to indicate roughly of no matter you inform it. However with the brand new coronary heart icon, all that occurs while you faucet it’s the coronary heart adjustments purple — an indicator that you simply appreciated it, presumably.
Faucet it, and the guts turns purple, indicating you appreciated it.
We do not have this tweak dwell on any of our personal gadgets, so it is robust to say what different issues it adjustments, however in response to our tipster, choices to tune Uncover’s habits (like marking a topic as uninterested or blacklisting a venue) are nonetheless current within the three-dot menu. However when you appreciated the obvious granularity that the Extra/Much less choices supplied, it appears Google is contemplating altering that.
If we discover on the market’s every other distinction in habits, or if the change rolls out extra broadly, we’ll let you recognize.
The heart button appears to be rolling out more widely, as we’ve received several more reports from Android Police readers, and it has even showed up on some of our own phones. It functions just like it did in the initial test — tapping it brings up a toggle to choose if you want more or less articles on the same topic.
