Google loves you and wants you to stay informed about the insights and your searches. And, with that thought it gave us ‘My Activity’ site.
A number of channels, information sources, link sources and device mediums are getting introduced and Google needed to find a way to control the data that is flowing across channels and mediums and put all that together at one place for the user. That’s why Google launched My Activity site to track your searches across channels and mediums and fetch that information back to you.
There are two viewing formats available in My Activity site.
Bundle View: The results are views in a bundled manner with a drop-down extension of the activities.
Item View: Item view just shows you the snippets of the activities.
Both the views are in the timeline card format.
