It isn’t easy for any individual to always prioritize things and execute yourself accordingly, as there is so much in life but so little time to explore everything. But you can go for sorting out things based on your knowledge and understanding of what is/are important, or what is/are in your front. While you turn to Google for answers to simplify the sorting process, a new experience is coming for you through Google new feed.
Like every other aspect in your life, the issue of sorting out priorities is the same in your pursuit of the histories and happenings across the world through the news feed. Google keeps this in mind and is bringing you the kind of change that you are looking for in order to prioritize things. Google is introducing a new feed experience to the users, focusing on what matters to you – “even when you don’t have a query in mind”.
Smart Feed moving with You
Last December saw Google introducing the feed. Since the time, Google has put its algorithm systems to work for enhancement in anticipating your importance and interests. There have been stories on sports, top news, music releases, and so on.
Now, your Google new feed will not be restricted to just Google interactions, but is also expanding based on trends of your area and worldwide. In short, ‘the more you use Google, the better your feed will be’.
The smart feed is to evolve along with you and the world. You will notice that the feed will provide you with stories based on your personal interest levels. For instance, if you love photography and have only a little liking towards fitness, you will get to see the same in your feed accordingly.
Also, unfollowing any topic is easy, as all you need is to tap on the subjective card in your feed, or visit Google app settings.
Following your Favorites by Google new feed
In the course to provide better feed to the users, Google noticed that it isn’t consistently easy for users to choose new topics to add to their feeds. For yourself keeping up with exactly what matters to you, Google is now letting you follow topics right from the Search results.
There will be a new ‘Follow’ button next to specific search result types, including sports teams, movies, bands or music artists, celebrities, and so on. One tap on the respective follow button will let you get updates and stories regarding the topic in your feed.
Broader Contexts and Deeper Explorations
Users need information from multiple perspectives to make up their mind on a subject. Your news feed is likely to have new stories with various viewpoints from different sources, along with other relevant information. The new update will also let you fact check and grab hold of relevant info for gaining a more holistic idea on topics in your feed.
Google is taking one step further in making things easier for you to dig deeper into any topic in your feed. Every card will have a header at its top, which will put your interests front and center, as you will be able to search the topic on Google by one tap.
More of what You Care about
No more of you trying to keep up with everything of your interest in the world. Rather, you will spend more time and energy cultivating the topics, irrespective of whether these are on philosophy, politics, or sports, and so on. The new Google update for the news feed is providing you with this opportunity, where you can enjoy more with your favorite topic than waste time coping up with its latest developments.
The update for Google new feed is launching today for the U.S. users, and is available in the Google app for Android (including Pixel Launcher). It is going to be rolled out worldwide in the upcoming two weeks. All you need is to “open the Google app and scroll up to get started”. The experience is sure to justify the final words of Dr. Seuss, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go”.
