Google’s new Q&A app lets celebs personally answer your most boring queries


Google has, increasingly, tried to supply public figures an opportunity to handle their very own Google outcomes — and on this case it seems to be attempting to have enjoyable with these inane questions persons are all the time Googling about their favourite celebrities.

The app known as Cameos, and it’s presently solely out there on the iOS App Retailer. It’s a really unique app. As a way to even use it, it’s important to be issued an invitation code. I point out that so you understand I haven’t had the prospect to check this personally as a result of, you understand — your woman isn’t precisely pulling in these Beyoncé crowds. However from the seems of it, when you’re within the app, you reply questions of your selection on video, after which these movies seem within the card to the aspect of your search outcomes.

Hate spammy ICOs and crappy cryptocurrencies?

So do we.

This seems to be an extension of a service Google offered last year to a sure variety of celebrities. The outcomes are the identical: The individual in query gives solutions to the search engine’s most requested questions on them. Google doesn’t even appear to hassle culling probably the most fascinating questions. You get all of the fundamentals, like “How tall is X?” or “The place is X from?” Potential X’s can even reply to questions from “Google followers,” that are normally a little bit extra detailed and probing.

If nothing else, this gives a little bit shade to probably the most fundamental and foolish of Google’s searches. Whereas I do not know how keen most celebrities and public figures are going to be to provide video responses to questions on their pure hair shade or delivery title, I hope sufficient of them do to make it a factor. As it’s, you may presently see a number of outcomes on Google searches for the likes of Priyanka Chopra or James Franco.

One of many individuals who seems within the photos on the App Retailer is basketball participant Kevin Durant. You may presently discover his solutions to a number of questions while you search his title. He additionally demonstrates why it’s most likely not finest to permit customers to reply these questions personally. When requested how tall he’s, he responds “Some folks saying I’m 6’9″, some folks say…” and I simply need to shake him. It’s not a solution one can provide an opinion on, KD. Get a darned ruler and came upon the reality.

In the event you suppose you’re standard sufficient, you will discover the Cameos app on the App Store.
