Flip Through Stories and Topics with Updated Navigation

Google News has updated and redesigned the layout to their website.

Take a look at the new layout on the main website with Google News. Customize your news to have the publications and topics that you prefer display in the content feed.


One of the new features is known as Story Cards. These help readers explore different perspectives to gain a well-rounded understanding of different issues. The introduction view offers a quick glance into a story. If readers want to read more from a selected source, they can go deeper and read articles with different points of view.

When on the front page to Google News, there will be a gear in the upper right section of the screen. Click on the gear for the setting options. Under the ‘sources’ tab make sure to add us to one of your sources for news.

Users can also add interests by adding topics that they want to read about on a regular occasion.

Headline sections are for specific topics or keywords that often appear in headlines. I have organized some of my ‘headline sections’ to geographical locations.

In addition to Google News, the company has also been updating Google Assistant for smartphone users. Watch over a quick preview of Google Assistant on YouTube.
