Google News is the place millions of internet users go for their daily headlines. Google has finally unveiled a redesigned Google News that looks less like The Drudge Report and much more modern. Google News and The Drudge Report are similar in what they do: they both aggregate the news and deliver it to readers. Up until now, they both looked similar and kind of generic. With this new design, Google’s aggregator is much nicer looking and easier to use.
- We’ve adopted a card format that makes it easier to browse, scan and identify related articles about a story.
- The new layout focuses on key elements, such as publisher names and article labels, and maintains your view and place on the page as you click in and out of stories and explore topics.
- We dedicated the navigation column on the left to sections that you customize. You can jump quickly to news you enjoy, whether it’s standard sections like Sports or Entertainment, or those created by you and powered by your queries, such as “FIFA World Cup” or “Bollywood.”
Every day people come to Google News for a trusted view of the world. It’s there for everything from moments of political change to gripping sports events to daily local news. To make news more accessible and easier to navigate, we redesigned the desktop website with a renewed focus on facts, diverse perspectives, and more control for users.
This new look is a huge improvement over the old look and I welcome it. I think it should be pretty well received by most users as well though I’m sure some will have to have time to adjust.
