The brand new Google News starts its rollout today


Like Apple News, the landing page for Google News is called For You, which is where Google aggregates stories based on your interests. The company says that the revamp combines the best of artificial intelligence with the best of human intelligence, and it sees Google try to rebuild the trust people have in online news.

The reimagined Google News employs AI techniques to organize the constant flow of information that hits the web into storylines.

Personalised news for the reader is now more readily available which is tailor-fit to the needs of its audience. You can tell the app to show more or less from any given topic or news source and it'll eventually key in on your preferences. You will find more than 1,000 magazine tiles at a cellular optimized scanning format. Users wouldn't need to go through the payment process while subscribing since Google will take care of the same, instantly, with its "Subscribe with Google" feature. It shows a briefing of five news stories that are a mix of important headlines, local news, and, the latest stories from topics you are interested in. In addition to just showing you articles related to the topic, you'll get videos, commentary, and a full timeline of events related to the event that gives you a fuller picture than even typical internet searching would.

Google will address this with a new "subscription center" in Google Play, where users will be able to both explore new subscription apps to try, as well as manage their current subscriptions.

Following that, the current Snapdragon 2100 was only slightly more modified with changes to packaging, sensors, and software. Qualcomm has now let slip that a new platform will be announced this autumn alongside a lead smartwatch.

There will be a separate tab "Headlines", which will allow users to see what the rest of the world is reading and it will also fetch the latest videos from YouTube and other sources. In comparison to Google's new feature announcements last evening, Facebook's announcement at F8 2018 with regards to fighting fake news, pales in comparison. Head to the Play Store and grab the app now so that you will have the updated new app as soon as it is available.

News includes a unique visual format called newscasts. The company announced that with the help of its new "Subscribe with Google" platform, users will be able to get access to their paid platform across devices and platforms including Google Search, Google News, and the publisher websites. The app update begins rolling out on Android, iOS, and the web in 127 countries on Tuesday, May 8; the staged rollout should be complete by the following week.

Our hope, shared by our early development partners-McClatchy, the Financial Times, and The Washington Post-is that the user benefits of Subscribe with Google will also manifest as publisher benefits.
