Google appears to be testing a new feature on mobile search results. The yet to be announced feature is called “Quick View” and it basically allows users to open up a page from the main website easily and much faster. A Google+ user named Wissam Dandan was the first to spot the feature. He noticed a “Quick View” button beside a Wikipedia search result on Google when he typed the word “SEO” on his iPhone 5.
On Google+, Dandan writes [emphasis added], “A neat option I am seeing in mobile search. For Wikipedia pages only. Can it be implemented on any other site?” Clicking the blue-colored Quick View button will take you a light-weight version of the Wikipedia page, as seen above. Google has yet to comment on the said feature. It is important to note that Google is already using the “Quick View” term for viewing PDF files on Google Search. Albeit the feature is limited to Wikipedia pages for now, there’s a huge chance that Google will expand the feature to other websites.
