Google has reportedly begun to remove web tools from its official search engine after being pressured by the public to remove them.
According to The Verge, Google Search, which is a subsidiary of Alphabet, is now removing the tool listings from the search engine’s official search results page.
The Verge added that Google is now replacing the tool listing with a list of Google Search results that include a new feature that allows users to search for a specific Google product by name or description.
“For the first time, Google is adding a search engine that can filter search results based on keywords,” the Verge wrote.
“Search is already incredibly flexible and powerful and it’s going to get even better as Google grows.
We hope to see a lot more innovative ways to make search easier and more flexible in the coming years.”
Google announced a number of changes to the search results section of its search engine last week, including removing search results that are directly related to a search term or company, as well as removing a tool listing that listed web browser plugins.
Google’s search results have been largely in place since April, when Google launched its new Search Engine Engine Lab to help it improve its search performance.
