Google News’ redesigned Following tab now serves up interesting topics on your feed

What you need to know

  • Google News is getting a redesign on Android that will make it easier to find useful articles with a new “Following” feed showing a series of cards that represent different areas of interest.
  • When you tap on a card, you’ll see articles related to topics you’ve followed, and you can easily follow or unfollow certain topics from the “Library” section.
  • The cards are automatically displayed in whatever order Google chooses, but there’s a way to reorganize them.

Google News’ “Following” tab has gotten a fresh coat of paint on Android, and it now pushes topics you care about straight to your feed on top of the sources you’re following. 

The new customizable Following feed displays all of the topics you’re interested in, alongside the publications you’ve added to your library. A series of cards appear at the top of the page, and when you tap one, you’ll be greeted with a feed of related stories that include the headline, source, and date of publication. The feed quite resembles Google Chrome’s homepage on mobile and the Google app’s Discover feed.
