This update is an expansion of the "Posts on Google" feature that the company first rolled out for big companies and celebrities in 2016, and included local businesses last year, The Verge reported.

Any musician, whose search result has a Knowledge Panel, meets the criteria to post the updates in the form of images, videos, GIFs and text.

When a user searches for a musician, Google automatically generates content like YouTube videos and biographical information.

These posts would show alongside that information of the musician.

Musicians can also get the "Blue Tick" that would verify that the posts are truly from the artist.
