Google Introduces ‘People Cards’ in India
Google has introduced a new Search feature ‘People Cards’ in India. It lets influencers, entrepreneurs, or anyone else who wants to be easily discovered online create a virtual card. This card will appear on the search when someone searches for their name.
Anyone can create People Cards using their Google Account. If you want to create your People Card, sign in to your Google account and search for your name. This will prompt a new option called “add me to Search” or “get started.” Tap and it will ask to enter information like description, profile photo, social media links, website link, address, work, and education details. These information will make it easier for others to find people in search.
Google has confirmed that it has put in place several measures to curb potential misuse of the new feature. Currently, People Card is only available in English.
People Cards are being rolled out for people in India searching on mobile phones. These cards are only available for English searches.
