Google is testing a scrollable version of their answers box within the mobile search results. Mitchell Haw from Ignite Visibility spotted this and posted a screen shot of it on their blog.

The new answer box has various pages of answers for your query. You can slide through the answers, based on the number of dots listed below.

Here is a screen shot of the new format:

This is what a typical answer looks like without the slider:

google-mobile-answer

If anything, this will create even more concern amongst publishers around Google displaying answers in their search results.
