Google’s Local Knowledge Graph Carousel Finds Its Way On Tablets
A few months ago, Google introduced the knowledge graph carousel feature to desktop users. Now, when you search Google on your tablet device, such as your iPad, Google make show you a carousel like feature at the top of the search results.
9to5Google spotted this claiming it works for local based queries. I was able to replicate it and here is my screen shot:
The issue I had is that you cannot swipe the local results from left to right with your finger. One would expect such an experience when using the carousel feature on your tablet.
In fact, searching for other search examples that return non local carousel results do let you swipe from left to right to see more carousel results. Here is an example that allowed it:
Expanding this to local results is important and as you can see, the results show Zagat ratings, pictures, phone number, a map, and a link to the website.
We’ve emailed Google for confirmation on this feature and hope to update the story shortly.
