Google Bell

As we reported, new stuff has now come to Google Search Console's messaging. Google announced a new method for viewing messages in Google Search Console.

You can now access these messages in the bell icon at the top right, it will have a red indicator when there are new messages for you to view. You can even view the messages by category.

Google said the "main difference from the old interface is that now you’ll have access to your messages throughout the product, no need to leave your reports." You can also mark all or some as read, so if you get a boat load of messages and want to mark them all as read, you can quickly do that.

Plus, Google now categorizing these messages into several types of categories including Coverage, Enhancement types, Performance, and others.

Here is a GIF of it in action:

Google also said you now have the "capability for site owners to access all the messages sent to the site, even those that were previously sent, regardless of when they were verified and when the messages were sent. Now, when users gain access to a new site they can see messages the site have received in the past, which should help the new owners to understand the context for that property."

Note: The message panel shows messages only from May 23, 2019 onward. Messages sent before that date can be viewed only in your personal email or in the legacy message list. Your old messages will be available in the old interface for the time being, you can find them under the “Legacy tools & reports” section in the sidebar.
