According to Google, people are interested in what people with similar attributes to themselves think about a particular site. The function that visualizes this is 'Notes', which allows you to add notes to specific sites.

'Add Note' and '○○notes' buttons will be added to the information displayed in the search results. Click 'Add Note' to add a note, and click '○○notes' to see notes written by other users.

The memo list looks like this.

Each memo can be enlarged and viewed. Text decoration and visual customization with stamps, photos, etc. are also possible.

In introducing Notes, Google says it recognizes that quality and safety are important, and explains that it uses a combination of algorithmic protection and human moderation to remove harmful material. .

'Notes' will be available in the Google app Search Labs in English in the United States and in English and Hindi in India from November 16, 2023. It is unclear when the service will be available in Japan.
