Washington: Google has launched a redesigned version of Google Trends that brings real-time data to the service. According to TechCrunch.com, the new design mostly follows Google’s own Material Design guidelines, the design language the company announced about a year ago and that is now being used into most of its mobile and web products.
The new homepage of Google Trends is now available in 28 countries and Google says it will add more locations in the next few months. Google will now also provide a real-time list of trending stories and additional information on the improved Trends search page.
The company says that it has also increased the breadth and coverage of Google Trends data, so user should be able to find information about more niche topics on the service now. The service now also pulls in data from YouTube and Google News searches.
Google says many of the changes in this new version are based on feedback the company got from journalists and others around the world. These journalists and marketers, who are interested in trending topics, can now also download datasets with more information about key trends for their own analysis and visualizations.
