Google News gets Material Design look, better personalization with AI

Google will update its News with more videos and fast load times

The new app immediately displays a briefing of the top five recommended stories at the top of the feed, with more suggested stories below.

Local journalism often takes a backseat to the larger, better-funded national and global news organizations, so it's pretty refreshing to see how Google News is able to amplify these smaller (but vitally important) outlets. It will be a mix of the most important headlines, local news, and the latest developments on the topics you are interested in. Then, the paid content becomes available across Google platforms, including Google News, Google Search and publishers' own websites. This update is expected to close down Google Newsstand, and Google News will get a new app. In fact, Google lifted a couple of features from its existing Newsstand app for the News app revamp.

In the wake of the rise of fake news spread by platforms like Facebook during the 2016 election and general fears about social media's effects on the way people consume news and information, there is likely to be intense scrutiny on how Google's AI performs. Most notably, we saw Google unveil a new Google Assistant feature that will let an advanced and naturally conversational AI system make calls and even secure reservations on your behalf.

Google News also has a refreshed visual aesthetic that plays greater emphasis to featured images and videos. In addition, you'll be able to decide if you'd like to see less or more of an issue or publisher.

Newscasts bring together articles, videos, photos, tweets, and more surrounding one story.

"This approach means Google News understands the people, places and things involved in a story as it evolves, and connects how they relate to one another", he wrote.

Council simplifies GST returns
In the third stage, after the system is deemed to have stabilised, no provisional input tax credit will be allowed for buyers. In the second phase , with the new filing software in place, the seller will upload invoices on the GSTN portal.

While you don't have to select your interests in the new Google News, you can choose to follow news sources like CNN, The New York Times, the Huffington Post, and others.

Newscasts are kind of like a preview of a story and they make it easier for you to get a feel for what's going on.

Its full coverage feature attempts to show many different perspectives on a story, including those from around the world.

Then, there's Full Coverage which as the name suggests dives deep into a topic without prioritising user's choice of sources.

The Google News redesign is starting to roll out today for everyone.
