Yahoo has redesigned its core functionality in an attempt to make searches more relevant and visually compelling as the firm tries to claw back market share from Google.
News searches will be more conveniently organised, with videos, images, articles and tweets appearing on a single page, the firm said in a blog post.
Searches for movies, music, artists or celebrities will also yield "richer content results" by combining images, news articles, videos, tweets, events and ratings.
The 'Trending Now' lists across the Yahoo network will be accompanied by slideshows later this year, allowing users to browse pictures from the entire Yahoo network without leaving the search results page.
"With more searches than ever for information-rich topics like music, movies and news, we'll be launching more visually compelling search results that let you discover information and be entertained all on one search result page," said Kaushal Kurapati, director of product management for emerging markets at Yahoo Search, and Caroline Tsay, director of product management at Yahoo Search.
Google unveiled its Instant search feature at the beginning of the month in an effort to make searching faster and more convenient.
Twitter is also rolling out a redesigned site in an effort to make it easier to share multimedia content and provide more information to about tweets.
