At the I/O developer conference, which was held last week, Google said that they soon will be launching the AI enabled Google News on the Apple store and by keeping up to their promise, Google has launched its new Google News which is powered with the advanced AI technology.
With the launch of the new AI enabled Google News, the old Google Play Newsstand app has been removed or we can say replaced. You can easily find the new Google News app in the Apple Store and you can also search for the already live Android version as well.
The new Google News is almost similar to the app which you will find on the Android platform. The new AI enabled Google News app uses machine learning process in order to train algorithms to comb through complex, breaking news stories, and then put them in an easy to understand format like a chronological timeline, local news aggregation, news shows in a developing and evolving pattern.
The app has been categorized into four sections, in which the first section comes with the name of ‘For you’ in which the machine learning is used to show you the top 5 news, which Google News thinks you will wish to read with some other news and articles chosen on the basis of algorithm. Then the next section is labelled as ‘Headlines’ and this section includes the major news and stories across sections like UK, World, Business and Tech. If you want to see the new feature of Full Coverage in Google News then you will have to use the same Headlines section. This feature breaks down the complex stories into a series of articles from different sources with social media posts like Twitter and YouTube.
There is also a new visual format in the Google News which is named as newscasts. With the power of enhancement in understanding natural language, this section will show you the news as in the form of preview of a story with basics from various resources.
But according to Google, the hero of the Google News is the Full coverage about which we have discussed earlier in this blog post.
The Newsstand section of the Google News is where you can easily find and follow publishers. In addition to this, you can also search for more than 1,000 magazine titles and all this will happen in a mobile optimized reading format. You can also easily subscribe to a particular app then you can do so without leaving the app. You just have to use the subscribe button in the app. By subscribing with Google, you will get access to your paid content not only in Google News but in your Google Search as well.
You should know that over 60 publishers from different parts of the world have signed up to subscribe with the Google Platform.
