Google can now understand more queries and can answer more complicated questions that users may ask


Google is announcing that the search engine is improving the way it handles the natural language by handling superlatives, times and complicated questions in a better way.

More Complicated Queries

Google has improved on understanding complex combinations in a question making it more likely to respond to questions such as: What was the UK’s population on the day England won the world cup? Or what are some of Seth Gabel’s father-in-law’s movies?

Time-Based Queries

Google is better at understanding the time you mention in your query, for example:  What was the population of Jamaica in 1998? Or how many pop songs were recorded in 2012.


Google now understands superlatives, such as: finest, Biggest, simplest and so on. So you can ask Google questions like: Who is the tallest Manchester United player or What are the largest cities in England.
