How to Use Google's New Filter to See Different Perspectives on Any Topic

Are you tired of seeing the same old perspectives on the news? 

Do you want to learn more about different viewpoints on a topic? 

Here's a Cool Tip: Google's new Perspectives filter.

The Perspectives filter is a new feature that allows you to see a variety of perspectives on any topic. 

When you use the filter, Google will show you a mix of long and short-form videos, images, and written posts from a variety of sources, including discussion boards, Q&A sites, and social media.

This means that you can get a more well-rounded view of a topic by seeing what people from different backgrounds and with different experiences have to say.

Here's how to use the new Perspectives filter:
  • Go to Google  on the web or use the mobile Google app for iPhone or Android.
  • Search for a topic.
  • Click on the Perspectives filter.
  • For the mobile apple, swipe the filters until you see Perspectives.
  • Scroll through the results and see what different people have to say.
Here are some additional tips for using the Perspectives filter:
  • This feature is slowly rolling out to users.  Try checking if you can see the Perspectives filter on the web or mobile app version.
  • Pay attention to the sources of the content. This will help you to understand the different perspectives that are being represented.
  • Don't be afraid to click on the links to the original content. This will give you the opportunity to learn more about the different perspectives.
  • Use the filter to find new and interesting topics. You might be surprised at what you find.
An interesting note is that many users would add Reddit to the end of their Google search input in order to filter results to include comments from the popular site.

However, this no longer works well since Reddit's recent policy changes on APIs and moderation has resulted in many popular subreddits going dark or unusable.

So try this new Google feature on your next Google search!

That's it.
