Google has launched a new, mysterious service called What Do You Love?. It’s a simple search box, similar to the one on Google’s homepage, but it returns results from over 20 different Google services, including Google Translate, Trends, YouTube, Maps, Groups etc.

The results are presented in little boxes which can, in some cases, be expanded by clicking on the icon in the lower right corner; if you need even more results, you can always click the button in the upper right corner of the box and go directly to the chosen service.

The service is  located on the address www.wdyl.com and google.com/whatdoyoulove/ , but so far there is no info about it on google blogs.
