Google revamps search to feature off-line home search

Scientists at Google are always looking for new ways to search, sort and stack our lives. An area less covered is the in-home offline search. Looking for paprika or the tv remote? Google is addressing this need by reconfiguring its search results to help users find more things, like lost socks.
"Our research indicates perhaps 25 percent of people fit this category," Google's Nupak Jumkta wrote in a blog post. "That's why over the next few days we'll be rolling out a new feature to help you find your socks in the main Google Search results."

Google's in-home search results will be ranked algorithmically showing "high-quality" results. For example, if a user wants to find the cork screw, a Google search will bring up a home view of their living space highlighting the corkscrew along with related articles on wine, hangovers and glass recycling.
"I'm happy to see people will find their lost socks," Jumkta wrote. "This is exactly what you'll find in the new feature. In addition to socks, you'll also find some great things under the sofa and buried in the yard."
Currently, the in-home feature is only available on in English. It's unclear if it will roll out to other languages.
