Google Web Stories

Google announced this morning on Twitter that its testing tools can now recognize your Web Story and label it as such. Google said "starting today, our testing tools will recognize if your AMP document is a Web Story. In our testing tools and Performance report we'll use the term Web Story to identify this format."

I ran the AMP Test on Glenn Gabe's Web Story that he published earlier this month and yes, it now shows "Web Story" in the testing tool.

It also shows you two different previews of how it may display in the results:
