How fast do you want to know what’s going on in the world? How about in Realtime?

Google has rolled out their Realtime Search capability and they’re promoting up-to-the-second social updates, news articles and blog posts about hot topics from around the world.

Check out the following video explaining in a bit more detail the information overload Google is providing.

  • Search faster
  • Get results directly on the new Realtime homepage
  • Refine results
  • Pinpoint results by location, time, and more
  • See entire conversations
  • Read full threads of conversations to get context about any topic

The feature I’m most attracted to is the ability to have Google Alerts configured for Realtime access.
