The old version gave the news as a list – now they will appear in boxes. The change may seem small visually, but for Google it is a big step forward. This because they did not seem to be the focus of the company, even with the proliferation of fake news.
Perhaps in an attempt to show its customers that yes, Google cares about green news and trusted sources, the company is investing in a number of tools to improve this service.
In addition to updating the tab in question, Google has also partnered with US news portals, has created tools to facilitate paid subscriptions to these portals, in addition to creating some resources to combat fake news, including using AI for this. .
Google didn?t say when exactly the news tab would have its new look. It seems that this update should take place over the next few weeks, but there is no specific date.
