Additional enhancements to the search results page in Google Chat

What’s changing

We recently announced a redesigned search results page in Google Chat that highlights matching keywords in search results and shows clear demarcation between results for easier browsing.
Today, we’re introducing condensed versions of your search results to only show the relevant parts of a message that match closest to your search query. By selecting “Show more”, you can view the entire message without the need to open the conversation.
