New Google Search Console is Out of Beta with New Features

If you are into digital marketing, blog owner or even tried to run a blog ever. You must be familiar with Google search Console which is previously know as Google Webmaster Tool.

From last few months Google was testing the new Google Search Console. Today when I am writing this post, new version of Search console is out of Beta with even better design and some new features.

Though old version is still available to you because not all the features of old version is still available in new search console. Once all the features is available in new version then Google will remove the old version of search console.

Although features are not available in Search console but you can still access those report in new report. For example, AMP report is not available in new report. But I have accessed AMP report in new version. 

Access AMP report in old version and then click on “Go the new report” showing on top. This will redirect you to the AMP pages in new Search console.
