Google’s homepage, once clean and clear, gains widgets as the new feature moves into another phase of testing.

As reported to 9to5Google, Google seems to be pushing this new feature so more users can test it out. Some users notice a prompt saying, “Meet the new”. If you’re not signed in, users will be prompted to sign in to their Google Account so they can edit their new homepage cards. 9to5Google explains that clicking “Make this space yours” opens another window that lets you customize the cards that line the bottom of your search homepage.
