Have any of you seen this in the wild? It's an interesting and useful improvement on featured snippets:

In a "how to fish for trout" example, the featured snippet has the usual info plus buttons for "in a lake," "in a pond," "in a creek," and "from shore," with the buttons linking to the appropriate content on the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife site.

I've been seeing something similar in Image Search.

So if I search images for "fish" it might give choices across the top for "in a lake," "in a pond," or "in a creek." The choices seem to come from common word couplings, e.g. what others have search for.

I usually just skip over these answer boxes without looking at them. They're mostly just clutter, wasting valuable space at the top of the page.
