Unlike our computers, our mobile devices tend to be smaller, and in some cases not as powerful, and also depending on our connection, could be slower in terms of page loads and whatnot. This is why companies are always on the lookout to optimize their mobile websites in order to deliver an experience that translates well onto mobile.
That being said, it seem that Google is doing just by introducing an experimental redesign of its mobile web search results. The experiment in question has been dubbed “LEGO” although we doubt it has anything to do with the LEGO toys and franchise, and basically what it seems to be right now is that it adds new animations to the search results.
Instead of search results just suddenly popping in after you hit the enter key, they now have a fade in animation which appears to be smoother. This applies to the knowledge graph card as well, and within the card, users are able to scroll through the image results at the same time. We’re pretty sure that there is more to the LEGO redesign other than new animations, but as it stands, that’s what it seems to be for now.
However we do appreciate the redesign as it does appear to be more smooth and fluid. No word on when Google will roll out these changes officially, if at all, but in the meantime if you’re on a mobile device, you can head on over to https://sky-lego.sandbox.google.com/ to take it for a spin, or check out the video above to see it in action.
