While it is early to tell what precisely the revamped News tab will accomplish, it is clear that it is a step in an entirely different direction. It showed off the refreshed look in a tweet Thursday. 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.

Google announced the Google News Initiative on Twitter stating that the refreshed design is for the "News" tab that lets you filter Search results to current articles from publications.

When searching on desktop, users will find - in the News tab - a more prominent display of publishers' names and specific cards for articles in a carousel, rather than straightforward headlines and links. The company hasn't shared many details, but the company did say that the new design will reach the users over the next few weeks. In this new design, the name of the publishers will be shown promenato. The news story image will be present on the right side in the card.

At Wednesday's news conference, Merkel was asked twice about her health. "Let me just say this on the question of health". Merkel, who has no history of serious health issues, is also facing growing pressure to be more open about her ailment.


Google said it would begin rolling out this feature over the next few weeks. Each link will have a separate Card when you search for something. This will be followed by a description of the headline and news at the bottom.

As mentioned in the Tweet, the update rolls out gradually and it will be made available in every region of the world in the coming weeks. Also, if you like our efforts, consider sharing this story with your friends, this will encourage us to bring more exciting updates for you.
