Yandex announced the launch of a new version of the search – Y2. It contains a number of important improvements.
““Yandex” has launched a new version of the search – “Y2”. The most important thing in the update: search for videos with voice-over, search for objects, the appearance of children’s accounts and big topics. The main page (ya.ru) and the mobile application “Yandex” are now focused on search“, the company said in a statement.
The new version has improved the search for objects, and in the search results, details about them are displayed in a structured way. “The information will be presented in a structured, easy-to-view form. So, upon request, for example, web development courses, Yandex will show a list of training programs with a price, training period and student reviews“, – said the developers.
In the Y2 version, children’s accounts appeared (you can link to an adult, other Yandex services work). As for the search for videos with voice-over translation into Russian, it works in the Yandex and Browser applications (English, German, French, Italian and Spanish are currently supported).
Finally, another innovation is the introduction of the CS YATI neural network, which will allow you to more accurately respond to the search queries of programmers and developers. “The new neural network takes into account one and a half times more parameters than YATI launched two years ago. In the future, Yandex will use the new transformer to improve responses to other highly specialized queries.,” the company said.
