If you like to keep up with the latest news, then you probably use the Google News app. In the app, you’re able to follow a bunch of different topics, sources, and locations to personalize your For You feed. According to 9To5Google, there’s a new redesign coming to the Google News Following feed, and it will help you see news stories quicker.
If you’re curious about the Google News app, you can download it to your phone or tablet. It basically makes the news feed you see in Chrome or the Google app accessible in one location. You’ll see top headlines from the topics and sources you view most regularly. You can download the app below.
The Google News Following feed is getting a redesign
This is a change that’s to help you see your headlines faster. The current Following tab shows you what you’re following. You’ll see three carousels with the entities that you follow. The top one shows the topics you follow, the middle shows the sources, and the bottom one shows the locations.
It’s a simple and straightforward page, but Google wants to pack a little more functionality into this feed. After the redesign, the feed will show you three top news stories from some of the sources you follow. On the top of the interface, you’ll see a new carousel with some of the sources you just recently followed.
There’s a lot in the feed, but there’s one thing that’s missing: the sources that you follow. They won’t be readily visible when you open the feed. However, the carousel showing your recent sources will have a Library button. This will show you the sources that you follow.
The tablet version of the app will be similar, but there will be one slight change. Using the tablet version, you’ll see four stories rather than three. This change is rolling out now, so there’s a chance that you won’t see it for a little bit. This change was spotted in version 5.86, so be on the lookout for that app update.
