Google announced today it has launched a new publisher carousel designed specifically for live blog content.

According to a post on its Google Developers Google+ page, Google is now allowing publishers to markup content with its new live blog schema:

Starting today, we are making the markup that powers these live blog carousels publicly available. So, if you’re a publisher interested in improving the way that users find your content in Google Search, head over to g.co/LiveBlogMarkup to learn more.

Google says it has already worked with a number of partners that are currently using the live blog schema, including The Guardian, Washington Post, The Telegraph and content marketing platform ScribbleLive.

Google included the following .gif to show how live blog carousel content will be displayed:
