As confirmed by John Mueller of Google, there are no plans to bring every legacy feature into the new version of Search Console. The question popped up in a discussion about submitting a robots.txt file, one of the most commonly used legacy features. Mueller clarifies that Google’s plan isn’t just copy features over, but to “rethink them along the way.” A lot of work is necessary to bring old features into the new Search Console, so even those that are ported may take some time. For now, users can still access the old version of Search Console in order to use legacy features.
- Commonly used legacy features such as robots.txt files may never be usable with Google’s new Search Console.
- Google says it takes a lot of work to old features to the new console, so even if they wanted to do so, it would take time.
- For now, users are able to switch between the old and new versions of the Search Console in order to access any legacy features.
