Google on Tuesday announced a new way to share and view stories in its search engine. Called AMP stories, the new Google template is free and available to anyone.
Similar toor , Google's AMP stories are optimized for mobile viewing, as they condense text to a series of interactive, animated images and videos. It's an evolution of AMP, the search giant's format for publishers to quickly deliver easy-to-read articles direct from search results, allowing you to quickly pull up a story on your phone.
"AMP stories are built on the technical infrastructure of AMP to provide a fast, beautiful experience on the mobile web," said Rudy Galfi, product manager for AMP at Google, in a blog post.
