Back in 2018, Google began testing a way for searchers to submit questions to Google manually. It launched in Google India in 2019 as Question Hub, a way for searchers to let Google know when they haven’t been able to find the content they are searching for.
This is now being tested in U.S.-based Google searches as a way for Google to identifying content gaps for COVID-related queries, a Google spokesperson told Search Engine Land.
What it looks like. Dan Leibson sent me an example of this via Twitter this morning. But he is in the U.S., not India, so I asked Google why someone in the U.S. is seeing this. Google said it is a limited pilot in the U.S. for some COVID-related queries where it is trying to understand content gaps.
Here is the screen shot Dan shared on Twitter:
Question Hub. This question hub feature launched in 2019 in India, Indonesia and Nigeria in English, Hindi and Bahasa Indonesia. Now, we have this limited test in the U.S. Question Hub is a tool that enables creators to create richer content by leveraging unanswered questions.

Publishers that are in this U.S. pilot can access the questions in Google Search Console. Here is a screen shot from Google in 2019:
