Google Updates AMP, Mobile Friendly, and Rich Results Testing Tools

eddygates1 | October 12, 2021


Google is updating the AMP, Mobile Friendly, and Rich Results testing tools in Search Console with features from the URL Inspection tool.

To solve for inconsistencies between each of these tools, Google is aligning them in terms of design and features.

Technically these are all standalone tools, though they’re powered by the same engine.

The engine has evolved over the years, and those updates have stayed current between all four tools.

What has not kept up, on the other hand, are the user interfaces and features of each tool.

Those advanced separately, which created a less than fluid experience for users when navigating between them.

The AMP, Mobile Friendly, and Rich Results testing tools are now “fully aligned” with the URL Inspection Tool.

What that means is all previous features are now standardized, and new features from the URL Inspection Tool are being added to the tools that didn’t have them yet.

Specifically, from now on the following fields will be reported across all four tools:

  • Page availability: Whether Google was able to crawl the page, when it was crawled, or any obstacles that it encountered when crawling the URL.
  • HTTP headers: The HTTP header response returned from the inspected URL.
  • Page screenshot: The rendered page as seen by Google.
  • Paired AMP inspection: Inspect both canonical and AMP URL.

In addition to the updates listed above, the Rich Results tool gained the ability produce a screenshot of the mobile and desktop versions of a page.
