The Google search visualization product Trends is getting its first major redesign since 2012.

Google Trends now taps into real-time data to give users a minute-by-minute snapshot of what the world is searching for.

In a blog post, Google said the goal with this update is to provide a "faster, deeper and more comprehensive view of our world" on everything from the NBA finals to Donald Trump's presidential campaign kick-off.

Users will now find a ranked, real-time list of trending stories on the Google Trends homepage, with data gleaned from YouTube and Google News, in addition to Search. Google said the additional data sources will help users understand why certain search terms are gaining traction.

Google also expanded the breadth of coverage on Trends, which it said will enable users to find information about more niche topics.

The redesigned homepage also follows the principals of Material Design, Google's year-old design language that is now ubiquitous throughout its mobile and web-based products.

For those looking to really dive into the data, Google is now publishing data on specific topics via GitHub.

Google said Trends is available in 28 countries, with more locations planned in the next few months.
