Seth Sternberg, Director of Product Management for Google+, says that Google is now bringing app activity to Google search results. Starting with a few music and movie apps such as Fandango, Flixster, SoundCloud, Deezer, Slacker Radio, TuneIn, and Songza, Google plans to roll out the feature on desktop Search in the coming weeks.
Also, expect more apps to be added to the narrow list as well. Basically, the update now lets users view an app's popular user actitivies. "Searching for Fandango, for example, will show the top movies among Google users. And when you click on a movie, you’ll go directly to its page on Fandango," writes Sternberg.
