A friend of mine reported seeing these new options in Google and sent me this screen shot and video. Notice you now see additional search options above the search by time frame options. The new search options read, everything, images, videos, news, blogs, updates, books, maps, shopping, more.
I did not see these new search options on my end, but I have some similar options as you can see by the second screen shot below. Notice the options are similar but slightly different. In this second example you also see forums as an additional search option.
I can’t help but wonder is Google is doing split testing live? Possibly a realtime multivariant test by the king of search. Let me know what you unveil to in the comments
