Selfie-style answers let celebs respond to frequently asked questions on Google

Celebrity trivia buffs are going to love Google's latest update to its search engine, which sees movers and shakers in entertainment answer questions about themselves on results pages on mobile. You can ask these type of questions like how many languages does Priyanka Chopra speak or if Will Ferrell can really play the drums.

Available first on mobile with Mark Wahlberg, Gina Rodriguez, Seth MacFarlane, and others. You will get your answers in the form of a video. From the sound of it, Google may been inspired by Wired's new video series that asks celebrities to answer commonly Googled questions about themselves. Google announced the roll out of the feature via a blog post on Thursday. However, if you search "Can Tracee Ellis Ross Sing?" the top result will be a video response from Ross.


The celebrities will not answer every question you ask, but it will be a fun surprise when they pop up with a personalized answer. While the questions were not exactly the same, we assumed they would be close enough to both elicit a selfie-style answer. Now a handful of stars are participating including, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo, Gina Rodriguez, Prijanka Chopra, and Dominique Ansel.

Now here is some great news for the fans of Megastar of India Priyanka Chopra, the tech-giant Google is set to launch a new feature that will change millions of lives.
