The redesigned desktop version of Google News introduces an updated look, additional options for personalization, and it highlights fact checking. The new UI has a clean and uncluttered look, designed for comfortable reading and browsing; it adopts a card format that makes it easier to browse, scan and identify related articles about a story.
A key addition is a focus on the controversial issue of fact checking. Explains Anand Paka, Product Manager for Google News: “Facts are at the heart of a story’s credibility. Last year we introduced the Fact Check label so you can get easy access to fact checking articles that investigate claims made in the story. Now we’re adding a Fact Check block on the right column of “Headlines” that shows the top fact checked articles recently published (this feature is currently available in the U.S. only).
