The Google app for iOS has received a new feature today. The feature is going to recommend them articles that are relevant to the one they’re reading. This will keep users in the app for a longer period of time. The recommended articles will be surfaced when users are reading a webpage on the Google app for iOS.

The suggestions for related articles will be displayed when the user pulls up the bottom of the page. They don’t have to type anything in the search box to find out more about that particular topic.

Suppose you’ve just finished reading an article about the different ways you can cook a steak. Once you reach the end of the page, the app will surface related articles that might be about the method you can use to check the doneness of a steak. You get the idea.

The recommendations can be accessed by swiping up on the bottom bar. This gesture will bring up a lightbox-style display that contains automatically populated content. This is a useful feature since many of us like to consult multiple sources these days whenever we’re searching for something online.

Google says that this feature is only available to users in the United States. It adds that the feature will be expanded to more languages and locales in the future.
