In addition to blazing through clips, this feature is also useful for when you need to examine details closely, like the notes to a guitar solo you’re trying to master.

We’ve contacted Google to learn more and will update this post if there’s a response.

Google brings Q&As to Google Maps and search .
Google products like Maps and search more or less exist, on a basic level, to answer questions. So it kind of makes sense that Google is adding a Q&A feature to results in Maps and search to make those questions easier to answer. © Provided by The Verge Now, when you open up a business listing in Maps or search, there’ll be a Q&A section waiting for you where you’ll be able to see questions that other people have asked, ask your own queries about the location, and upvote information with a thumbs-up button, which will surface those questions toward the top.
