Google at its annual developer conference, Google I/O, announced a new version of Google News. Google says the app, which begins roll-out today, will be available on iOS, Android, and the web by next week.
Google News will bring together artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to filter, sort, and organize news according to storylines. You'll be presented with many sources, multiple perspectives, and lots of information, giving you the opportunity to learn as much as you can about any particular storyline.
The app's new "Full Coverage" feature lets you dig down deep into a variety of sources, providing all the information you might need to form an opinion on a topic.
Along with deep looks at storylines, the app will integrate with news sources, giving you a one-stop shop for subscribing to your favorite news sources. The subscriptions will be tied to your Google account.
Google says the new Google News will replace a couple apps and services from the company, including Google Play Newsstand on mobile and desktop devices and the Google News & Weather app on mobile.
Looks great. I like my Google Play Newsstand app so this looks like it tries to get you out of your bubble to see all sides of an issue.
