However, any musician with a Knowledge Panel can now utilize Google Posts should they choose to do so.

The folks on WebmasterWorld feel a bit skeptical about this but the truth is, it really isn't much different than what Google My Business owners can do with their Google Posts.

Google launched this feature as a limited beta a year ago and then opened up Google Posts to all Google My Business users last June.

Besides the upcoming AMP Stories, Google has a "Posts" format for verified people, places, and things to share right in Search results. Musicians can also get the "Blue Tick" that would verify that the posts are truly from the artist.

Updates from musicians will appear within their respective Knowledge Panel, which typically shows up when the artist's name is searched for specifically. Text, images, videos, and gifs are all fair game so the possibilities are endless.

Google has made an update to its search functionality that increases the presence of artists with a wide range of updates including from social channels.
