What are featured snippets?

The featured snippets, also called highlighted fragments, are answers that Google offers to users after their searches. Google filters and displays the most relevant search results in a special block located at the top of the search results page. Through this format, the user receives a short and precise response to what they are looking for, without having to navigate through several pages. Currently, they are divided into three different categories: Text Snippets, Video Snippets and Snippets with lists and tables.
