Google has rolled out changes to the curiously popular “I’m feeling lucky” option on its homepage for users to change “lucky” into something that suits their sentiments.
Starting today, users will have the ability to choose from different options for “I’m feeling…”, which allows the “I’m feeling hungry” option to hunt for local restaurants if you are in the mood to dine out.
“I’m feeling lucky” certainly has many followers and users so the search giant looked for a way to make the experience more enjoyable for them.
Google announced the new feature in a post on Google+, its social networking service.
Yesterday, we asked you how you’re feeling and by far, the most popular answer was ‘hungry’! What does this have to do with Google Search, you ask? We recently added some other emotions to our I’m Feeling Lucky button, like artistic, wonderful, and of course, hungry. When you hover over the I’m Feeling Lucky button, it spins to an emotion and clicking on it connects you to a page that reflects that emotion. For instance, I’m Feeling Hungry leads you to a Google results page for restaurants in your area. Bon appetit!
Comments from Google+ users worldwide seem to confirm that this feature is currently only available to US residents only.
We tried it in Australia, Philippines and the UK but finally deduced it could be a gradual rollout or a test phase for now.
