Google wants to roll out a new update specifically for News Tab that will make publisher names more prominent and organizes articles more clearly to help you find the news you need
Google has clearly mastered virtually all its product which includes the search engine, and from time to time rolls out relevant updates to spice up User Experience (UX) which is no doubt one of the most important aspects of consideration for the company.
In the latest tweet by the company, it announced to roll out a new redesigned interface specifically for the News Tab. “Over the next couple weeks, we’re rolling out a redesigned News tab in Search on desktop. The refreshed design makes publisher names more prominent and organizes articles more clearly to help you find the news you need.” Google Tweeted.

With the new development, News stories are now displayed in a card format rather than a list, enabling the headlines and the names of publishers to become more visible. It also seems like the company is grouping stories together more clearly, so if you search for a broad topic (like “MLB”) it’s easier to distinguish different strands of coverage
As seen in the image above, there is no major deal with the changes, however, it is necessary to implement for the company as it is considered as part of a larger effort by Google to improve its news products.
According to The Verge, the tech giant’s treatment of news sometimes seems like an afterthought, with the company content to have its search and aggregation features scoop up content. But anxiety over digital news has grown in recent years, with publishers worried by diminishing revenue and experts warning about the proliferation of low-quality sources.
About the availability, Google informed that the new update will be rolling out to users around the globe in the coming weeks, although it is currently available for some testers already.
