Google to replace perspectives filter with forums filter

March 18, 2024

Google is rolling out a change to the perspectives filter, renaming it from perspectives to forums. Google launched the perspectives filter on mobile search last June, where you can filter the search results to just that type of content. A few weeks ago I caught Google testing displaying “Forums” as a search filter in the search results. Here is that screenshot from Shameem Adhikarath:Here is the same query, but with the perspectives filter option:Why the change. Based on its data, Google found it is more intuitive for users to use filter by “forums” over “perspectives.” Google also said people can use this filter to hone in on results from hundreds of forums from across the web.
