google-health-goog-googlThe update to Google Search now adds health information right into its searches. This will make it so that those searching for medical information will see it displayed at the top of the search without having to click on any links.

The new Google Search feature will start showing up for users in the next few days. The company said that one in 20 of searches through its service are related to medical information. It hopes these changes will make it easier for users to discover what they need.

Those that use Google Search will notice that the new feature is already similar to others offered by the service. Searching for a single word will offer a dictionary definition of it right in the search. The company also recently added a built-in mortgage calculator to its search and signed a deal with Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) to include Tweets in searches.
