Google search results will tell you when to be worried about that cough – Google says it will now highlight health-related information for appropriate search questions.
The data, which is part of Google’s Knowledge Graph, will include symptoms and treatments for various medical conditions. Users will also be able to learn how critical or contagious a condition is … or the ages a certain condition typically affects.
In some cases, results will also include illustrations from licensed medical illustrators. Google says the results are not intended as medical advice but rather for “information purposes only.” The new search feature will gradually roll out over the next few days, starting in the United States.
