Google says that to help people dive deeper into important stories and more easily find local news from around the world, Google has launched a redesigned, more customizable Google News experience for desktop users. It is based on the feedback from the readers.
The redesigned Google News will now bring Top stories, Local news, and personalized picks for you to the top of the page on your Desktop. Google has moved the local news section to the top of the page to make it easier to locate. This also added a filter button to add multiple locations to your local news section, so that you never miss the important news and updates about the cities and towns you care about.
OOne of the noticeable and biggest changes is in the several categories of news including business, science, health, world, and politics which was earlier used to be on the left-hand side, but now moved to a menu bar at the top.
And to make it more customised, Google News has the ability to customize the topics that appear to let you scroll and read through the stories that most interest you. This even gives you an option to add, remove or reorder topics just by tapping the blue customize button in the top right corner. This will make the Google News desktop homepage more organised and personalised.
