Google Current is a brief, once every half hour, television program on the channel Current TV . Selected episodes are also available on the Internet. The series tracks not necessarily what the news is, but what people are searching for on Google.

Each episode has a one or two word title, based on one of the websites or search terms highlighted. The top-of-the-hour segments use live hosts, while the middle-of-the-hour segments are presented with text, graphics and music. The hosted segments focus on searches (which may or may not be related) that have recently seen increased popularity. Meanwhile, the segments at half past the hour look at the top five searches featuring a certain word; for example, the top five "twins" searches included the Olsen twins and the Minnesota Twins.

The show was hosted by Conor Knighton, and featured Brett Erlich, Dave Hill, Eric Ledgin, and Stephen Schneider. Previous hosts included Kinga Philipps, Nzinga Blake, and Kendis Gibson. On the UK version of Current TV the main host is Graeme Smith with some episodes presented by Elaine Edwards.

As of 10 July 2007 the hosted segments of Google Current in the US no longer air. The same staff now produces infoMania,on Current TV. The UK continued to run its own version which was filmed daily in London until the end of 2008.

Now Google Current updates are presenter free rundowns of the most searched for items on Google.
