The Google News product has been around for almost 20 years. Now Google has announced a redesign. The new look of Google News on desktop was inspired by user feedback, the company said. It’s been easier for them to stay up to date with the most important news by putting top stories, local news, and personalized picks for them at the top of the page.
So they moved the Local News section to the top of the page to make it easier to find. Readers can now use the filter button to add multiple locations to their local news section so they don’t miss important news from the cities and communities that matter to them.
To make sure the Google News desktop homepage is what you expect, users can now customize the topics they see. With this feature, they can easily scroll and click on the stories that interest them the most. You can add, remove or rearrange themes – just click the blue Customize button at the top right of the Your Themes section to get started.
Google News’ fact-checking section on desktop will also be expanded to provide more context. In addition to the headlines, readers now see the original claim as well as the independently verified assessment of facts.
By the way: You can also follow our page directly on Google News. If you haven’t already, you can sign up here – like nearly 167,000 other people.
