Google News App Gets Redesign As It Takes On Apple And Facebook

Google News App Gets Redesign As It Takes On Apple And Facebook

For Google News program end users, there's a brand new "For You" segment that will soon be open using a briefing of 5 testimonies that Google News organises for you personally. It says that the new Google News uses "the best of artificial intelligence to find the best of human intelligence".

The emphasis on "authoritative sources" means Google may be able to avoid with News the problem it's had with YouTube, where automated recommendations have tended to push people toward more extreme content.

The revamp of the news app follows Google's pledge in March to spend $300 million supporting journalism, including by enabling subscription payments and fighting fake news. With so many people relying upon Google for their news these days, Pichai made a point of emphasizing that Google has a responsibility to provide accurate and pertinent information to users.

Google News is getting refreshed with new features, the company announced at the I/O 2018 developers conference. The industry is now trying to revamp its policy to generate revenue from readers through Google, Facebook, Apple and many other platforms.

Full Coverage largely aims to help users get a better perspective on news - that is, pop their filter bubbles by presenting news from multiple sources. You'll be able to easily subscribe to and read stories from the industry's most reputable news outlets, like the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times or the Washington Post.

One of the highlighted features is "Newscasts, ' which shows key elements from the story (including embedded videos and tweets) on the main page, in a format similar to Twitter Moments". The more the app is used, the better it gets at customizing the timeline. The app also makes it easy to see past articles about a certain event or topic.

"Newscasts are kind of like a preview of a story", Upstill said, "and they make it easier for you to get a feel for what's going on".

There's also a video component to the Google News app which lets users see videos of interest from YouTube and all across the web.

Another new feature called Full Coverage attempts to give users many different sources for one news story. The all-new Google News rolling out starting today and will be available to everyone on Android, iOS and the Web in 127 countries by next week.
