Google News has always been a crucial and trusted source of information for a lot of users. To make news more accessible and easier to navigate, Google has redesigned the desktop website with a renewed focus on facts, diverse perspectives, and more control for users. The new UI has a clean and uncluttered look, designed for comfortable reading and browsing.

Google has adopted a card format that makes it easier to browse, scan and identify related articles about a story. The new layout focuses on key elements, such as publisher names and article labels, and maintains user’s view and place on the page as they click in and out of stories and explore topics. Google dedicated the navigation column on the left to sections that users customise. Users can jump quickly to news in sections like Sports or Entertainment, or those created by them and powered by their queries, such as “FIFA World Cup” or “Bollywood.”

 

At the top of the page there’s a new navigation bar for “Headlines,” “Local” and “For You.” Upon signing in, users can personalize the “Local” and “For You” tabs. In “Local,” they can track stories from any part of the world. In “For You,” users can pinpoint niche interests and create their own mini news feed, whether it’s following their favorite team, or satisfying themselves with news on gadgets and gizmos.
