Thumbnails Beside Results in Google Search

    I noticed this today when I entered the URL of a Hub and did a search. I tried it with several hub URLs, but only one of them produced the thumbnail and other search results had adjacent thumbnails also. I know YouTube results show up with a thumbnail, but is this something new that Google is working on?

    A quick search showed that they are indeed testing a Mobile Search Interface which showed thumbnails. Google apparently has done this earlier in December of 2014, and now they are trying again. The screenshot you've attached, is it from a desktop or mobile device?
    I couldn't replicate it, the only search results with thumbnails I see on my desktop, were those from Google plus.
    Articles rich in media content would definitely benefit from this new feature once it is fully functional.

      It's from a notebook Anusha.
      I tried searching on a tablet using both Firefox and Chrome, but neither produced the thumbnails.
      I also tried searching on my notebook again this evening, and now the thumbnails no longer appear.

    Were you logged into Google either time?  Or using the same browser?  Just curious.

      Yes, logged in and using the same browser, Firefox on a notebook.
