Google India has rolled out its feature called "Symptom Search" in India that lets users find quality health information on their smartphones.

In collaboration with a team of doctors from Apollo Hospitals, the tech giant will add tailor-made information about commonly-searched symptoms in its Search.

For individual symptoms like "headache," the app, currently available in English and Hindi, will show digital cards, providing users an overview description along with information on self-treatment options and what might warrant a doctor's visit.

According to Google, the search results are intended for informational purposes only and users should always consult a doctor for medical advice and treatment.
