If you are a fan of Google News and bored with the old version, well, there is good news for you.
Google, in a blog post, explained how it will redesign and update the desktop version of the app so that users can better customize it according to their information preferences.
The update will include the ability to incorporate different filters, customize different topics and also offer an extended version for fact checkers.
The company says it drew inspiration for its desktop redesign through feedback and feedback received from users.
Coincidentally, the news was announced on the app’s 20th anniversary and we think there’s no better time for a change than this. After all, the famous Google News feature is a pioneer in authentic tools that bring together diverse news from all walks of life.
The new filter section allows users to add them to the section where local news can be found. Therefore, you can select and pull various stories from a number of different places at any given time.
This way, users can find the whole process that much easier as topics of interest will now be at the top of the page where all the important segments are seen in one place. Therefore, you don’t have to waste time searching for trending stories, custom picks, or local news like before.
Second, the update will allow users to customize their topics and have them appear at the top of Desktop’s homepage. It adds pure convenience and easy access that we feel.
Users will also now have the freedom to delete, rearrange and add a topic of their choice by tapping on the customizable option located at the top right of the topics.
Finally, users have the option to perform a more detailed quick check than before. In this way, Google hopes to limit the risks of spreading false information online.
Users will be able to see an original story and another in the form of a context that has been verified by a series of various organizations.
Along with this, Google also announced its mission to relaunch the famous Google News apps in Spain after confirming a redesign version.
The company took the news viral today via a blog post where it also highlighted how it plans to help journalists around the world. From funding and training initiatives to innovative products and newsrooms, the tech giant is on a roll.
