Launched more than twenty years ago, in April 2022, Google News has changed little in its long history. The Google service that allows you to discover the most important news on a topic has integrated a central page that gives access to the main topics, but the principle has remained the same: to provide access to the most important news on different topics.

However, this Wednesday, Google announced a major overhaul of its service, now putting much more emphasis on multiple sources on the same topic and allowing you to discover a system of tabs according to the headings that are likely to interest you.

In a blog post published on June 22nd, Google announces a new design for the web version of Google News: “This new look for Google News on PC was inspired by feedback from our readers. We’ve made it easier to keep up with the most important news by adding top stories, local news and personalized tips at the top of the page.”. This allows users to discover the most relevant news based on their interests and location from the home page.

More control for users

Of course, personalization can be done by the users themselves, choosing the topics that are most likely to interest them. You can personalize the game “Your Topics” by adding and deleting specific topics such as sports, business, health, science, technology or entertainment.

Specifically, the idea behind this Google News redesign seems to be to give users at-a-glance access to a sort of specialized site that groups various articles into one page, according to their favorite topics. Google will not forget the most important issues of the moment. In addition, users can continue to navigate through various topics besides the home page. These are now displayed in tabs at the top of the page, rather than in a column on the left side of the screen.

Google has announced that the new version of News will be rolled out starting this Wednesday. However, as always, it will take a little patience before all users can benefit from it.
