Google Web Stories are nothing but a web-based version of that popular Story format.

Google Web Stories allows you to host and own your own content. The medium is visual – kind of quick glance about your content.

You can publish it and share it just like you share a video or image after posting it on social media.

Google has introduced Story Carousel (in US, India, and Brazil as per now) that’s gonna show your stories when user search or when it’s relevant to the user.
