Google puts celebrities to work answering your search questions

From Engadget - December 7, 2017

Other celebrities answering questions on launch include Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, James Franco, Tracee Ellis Ross and Seth MacFarlane, among others.That's definitely not a comprehensive celeb list, but Google is promising more videos from both up-and-coming and well-known stars in the "next few months."There's no mention of international availability.

The feature is intended to offer a "surprise" to searchers.At the same time, it's also a slight competitive edge for Google.
