According to Search Engine Land, Google has started testing multifaceted featured snippets in their English version. Launched on mobile SERP in March, this update is now extended to the desktop search.
Within the update, users have noticed new snippets:
Multifaceted featured snippets appear in the search results for unclear queries that can be answered in several different formats: a definition, a list, a step-by-step guide, etc. By implementing these snippets, Google is going to provide its users with more comprehensive and diverse search results.
«This feature lowers organic Google search results even more than it did with its regular blocks of quick answers. Now you have to get into this section because it occupies the entire top of the organic search results».
