After Google, world’s largest search engine, on July 19 announced to roll out a personalised feed of links called “Google Feed” to its mobile platform-based app, rumour mill started churning out claiming the company is planning to revamp its iconic desktop homepage as well. However, the company has denied it, reported The Independent.
In a statement to The Independent, Google has dismissed the reports as “not strictly accurate”. The company confirmed its statement on bringing in “Google Feed” to the mobile version of its app “in the future”, but is not sure “exactly how it will look”.
“There are no plans to bring the feed to the desktop version of Google’s homepage yet,” Google told Independent.
On “Google Feed”, the company said the changes would begin rolling out in the United States initially, while it will be made available to other countries in the coming weeks.
