From adding curves to checking for ebooks at your local library, Google‘s web search has been no stranger to design changes and added features. Over the weekend, Google added another feature, one that helps you compare two devices and see which one might be best for you.
If you go to Google Search on mobile or desktop and type in “Pixel 2 vs iPhone X,” or any two devices with “vs” in the middle, a comparison chart should pop up. This chart is an extremely detailed one, since it lets you compare reviews, prices, storage, physical dimensions, cellular connectivity options, and much more.
As a nice bonus, you can tap a toggle at the top of the comparison chart to highlight differences. This toggle comes in handy if you’re comparing two devices that are somewhat similar to each other – the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL come to mind.
At the time of this writing, the only hang-ups are which devices you can compare and availability. As it pertains to the former, I was able to get a comparison chart for the Pixel 2 and iPhone X, but the same could not be said when I wanted to compare the Pixel 2 to the LG V30. I’m not sure why that is, but that should change as time passes.
As for availability, I was able to get the feature working on Google Search for mobile, but not for the desktop or Google app. It seems like the comparison chart is slowly rolling out to users, so that should change in the coming days.
