They first introduced the real-time search features last December, with a goal to provide real-time content from a comprehensive set of sources, integrated right into your usual search results. Yesterday they made significant enhancements, giving real-time information its own URL for easier viewing and manipulation.
On this new homepage you’ll find a variety of tools to help you refine and understand your results, including:
- Geographic refinements to find updates and news near you, or in a region you specify.
