Google will Start Grouping Relevant News Stories according to Topic

Google has announced it will roll out a new format for news stories around relevant topics, using artificial intelligence…

Search giant Google is about to introduce a new way to group news stories according to relevant topics. The new format will first debut in the United States, with other countries and languages following in the “coming months.”

Google to Group News Stories according to Relevant Topics

Basically, Google will group like news stories under relevant topics. The search company will display articles about certain topics in carousels.

It’s a way to better organize information, grouping together stories from a variety of sources, in a carousel.

Duncan Osborn, Product Manager for Google Search, writes:

“When you’re searching for information on a timely topic–a recent sports upset or the latest scientific breakthrough–you see a carousel of articles at the top of your Search results highlighting relevant news. Now, when there are multiple stories related to your search, we’ll also organize the results by story so it’s easier to understand what’s most relevant and you can make a more informed decision on which specific articles to explore. Within each story, the new structure will make more room for high-quality content–beyond just the most recent coverage–as well as more diverse sources, to bring more context and perspective to the day’s news.”
