Last week we reported that Google dropped the knowledge graph snippets overlays. Well, last night Google confirmed this is not a bug but instead, it was intentionally removed. Google told us they will "confirm that due to low usage, we've retired this feature."

The feature has been around for just about two years, here is what it looked like:

I am a bit surprised they removed it but I guess for mobile, it doesn't work as well.

By the way, the removal of the small snippets on Google was not intentional and that was a bug that Google is fixing.
