Google’s search engine announced today that it’s updated its app to allow users to see tweets that were posted by users in other countries, as well as those of other countries in the world.
Users of the search engine’s Google News app now have the ability to see comments, images, video and audio of those tweets, which are shown in the sidebar of the app, instead of having to click on the tweet in question.
This feature was previously only available to Google News users, but is now available to everyone who has an account on the search giant’s Google+ platform.
The feature is a way for users to share their opinions about the day or issue on which they live, and to share information about the news they’re covering, as long as they are not associated with a news source that the user has a Google+ account for.
Users can also opt-in to see these tweets, and can also share them with their friends, though the feature does not work on private channels, such as the social networks Snapchat or Instagram.
Google says this feature is only available in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, and will not be rolled out to other countries.
It will be available in other parts of the world later in the year.
“Our goal was to provide our users with a way to share what’s important to them,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement.
“We wanted to make sure people would have the tools they need to express themselves.”
