Google adds related topics to featured snippets

By: 

Google is now showing extended featured snippets for some queries, which should not surprise anyone.

 

Google is now showing extended featured snippets, where they add more information to the top featured snippet box for some queries. Featured snippets are often seen in the Google search results when Google is confident they can answer your query by extracting content from a specific web page.

 

Now, it seems Google is showing extended versions of them with “related topics” that hyperlink to additional queries in Google.

 

Here are two screen shots, one for [birth control] and the other for [personal loan]. Both of those queries currently bring up extended featured snippets for me:
