Google Squared Is Now Live

Google Squared Is Now Live

Google has pulled the covers off of Squared, the search tool that was first demoed during the Searchology event last month.

Google Squared takes a search query and tried to present the results in tabular form — like an online spreadsheet of sorts. Sometimes it works very well and provides interesting results, and other times not so much. Here’s a screenshot of the “very well” example, a search for [u2 albums]:

Squared is very configurable; you can add and delete rows and/or columns, and sometimes replace data that Squared puts in your results. It’s a search tool that’s still part of Google Labs, and frankly, its overall usefulness is questionable. But that, presumably, is exactly what Google Labs is for — testing new ideas and seeing what sticks.

An official announcement of today’s launch is expected soon.
