Google News is getting revamped with news curated by machine learning

While Spotlight is updated daily to cover a new topic, I appreciate Google's approach with Full Coverage because it will make those aggregated pages more accessible and relevant to readers. You can tell the app to show more or less from any given topic or news source and it'll eventually key in on your preferences.

To be clear, this isn't the "old" Google News.

You can also go to the Headlines section to see what the rest of the world is reading and also see different sections like technology, business, sports, entertainment, etc.

Full Coverage is assembled from a variety of sources and formats using something Google calls "temporal co-locality". It is also comes with sections like "For You", "Full Coverage" and "Newsstand", along with something what's called "Newscasts" and "Subscribe with Google".

With day one of Google I/O 2018 completed, here is a list of the 2018 Google Play Award Winners apps.

With real-time Artificial Intelligence/ Machine learning, the revamped Google News analyses information as soon it is posted online and organises it into storylines.

Instead, West Brom now have 11 points in the five games since Moore took over - a run of three wins and two draws. Bournemouth will be able to drop into a five at the back formation if they are on the back foot.

"Newscasts" brings a catalogue of quotes and videos that will be available on a single topic when searched upon.

Here, you'll find all of the day's biggest stories that you care about from around the globe, around your country, and even down to your very city. You will be able to see top headlines from various sources, videos, local news reports, FAQs, social commentary, and a timeline for stories that have played out over time.

The overhauled Google News will also have a Newsstand tab, which will let you follow the sources you trust, as well as browse and discover new ones. Google said that "more great journalism [is] being produced than ever before", and to make it easier to make sense of it all, it is bringing all its products into a unified News experience.

Google also will offer faster test renewals, support for flexible introductory pricing, upgrades with the same renewal date, partial refunds and other refund API improvements. You will find more than 1,000 magazine tiles at a cellular optimized scanning format.

As you'd expect, Google gives you a bit of control over managing these interests. You'll be able to access your paid content everywhere-in Google News on any platform but also on the publisher's own websites. The company has started rolling out the new version starting today and it will be available for all Android, iOS and web users by next week.

The original Google News launched 15 years ago was a simple platform that organizes articles based on topic and category, allowing users to view a collection of news and multiple sources of the same topic.
