Test: Google Showing Competing Shopping Search Engines In Shopping Carousel

As you know, the EU fined Google over anti-competitive search results in the shopping space, amongst other areas. Google testing shopping ad designs to appease the EU shortly after. Now Google was spotted by Gabs in the UK testing a new way of showing links to competing shopping search engines in the shopping carousel.

Ginny Marvin covered it yesterday but here you go again:

The test showing competitor links at the end of the shopping carousel:

What I see for the same search in Google UK:

I don’t know if this will stick, and Gabs is only able to see it on some browsers, so it is probably just a test.
