By | September 4, 2015



Google is set to simplify the search for any health issue. It plans to allow users to watch the overview of their illness search results directly. It would give more accurate, quick and straight forward health tips, whenever you search for any diseases.

The company has been offering health information since February about some disease and these information includes symptoms of the illness, treatments and common conditions.

Prem Ramaswami, the product manager at Google says in a blog post, “Health conditions continue to be among the most important things people ask Google about, and one of our most popular features.” According to Google one of twenty Google searches is about health related issues.

The company has updated its list with more number of sickness and diseases in the health condition feature list that takes the total number of diseases to more than 900. When you search about any of the disease available in the list, Google would show quick results including symptoms and treatments as well as a PDF Download link. You can print the PDF file.

Currently this feature is only available in US and in English language. However, the company is planning to make it available in all the regions and languages in near future.
