Last week, Google announced a revamped version of Google News which is now powered by AI to offer a better user experience. The revamped News app is replacing Newsstand which hardly got any love from the company.
With the new Google News, Google is taking on Apple News which has managed to gain over 60 million readers in the United States alone.
The revamped app features a new and cleaner look that makes for a better reading experience. It also features smart briefing to help you quickly catch up to the top five stories. You can also get in-depth information about a story and how it has developed with a timeline of events, analysis, and more.
Google News organizes what’s happening in the world to help you learn more about the stories that matter to you.
With Google News, you’ll see:
Your briefing – It can be nearly impossible to keep up with every story you care about. With your briefing, easily stay in the know about what’s important and relevant to you. Your briefing updates throughout the day bringing you the top five stories you need to know, including local, national, and world content.
Full coverage – Understand the full context on any story with just a tap. Google News gives you everything online about a story and organizes it for you – highlighting different perspectives, a timeline of key events, FAQs, important people, and more.
Credible sources – Find quality content from a diverse set of credible publishers and discover sources you haven’t heard of before.
Stories, for you – Keep up with what’s happening on the topics you care about, whether that’s travel, politics, sports, tech, or fashion.
One key advantage of Google News over Apple News is that it is available in over 100+ countries compared to Apple News which is available in just a handful of countries like the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.
