Google Adds More Tabs to Search Cards on Mobile

Google’s original tabs in Knowledge Graph cards for movies were: Overview, Showtimes, Cast, and Reviews.

Google’s new set of tabs in Knowledge Graph cards for movies include all of the original tabs, plus:

  • Search
  • Top Stories

After learning this news, there are several questions left unanswered.

When will be officially rolled out to everyone? The tweet says “now you can explore more information…”

Google is giving the impression it should show up for everyone, but that does not seem to be the case.

Will other Knowledge Graph cards be getting the same, or similar, treatment. There was brief mention of changes coming to books and stocks cards, but not any other categories.

There’s also the question of what kind of an effect this will have on movie websites. Will traffic be hurt  now that you can get more of what you need to know directly from Google? We’ll have to wait and see on that.
