google-news-feed

Google is making a small yet significant change to its Google app for Android. The company will begin rolling out an update to the app today that will break up the info into two tabs; one for news and trending topics and the other for any upcoming personal events you have on your schedule.

The news feed will be the default tab in the updated Google app. It will offer users a customized brief on the news they care about, including the latest sports scores, entertainment gossip, and more. Google will begin adding a card in the news feed for U.S. users that will allow them to pick specific topics they’re interested in seeing in the search app.

The upcoming events tab will be designed to give users a chance to check their calendar for upcoming meetings and events, along with items like the latest travel time estimate for the office. It will also give out info like when your package is supposed to be delivered, when your busy holiday flight is scheduled to depart and more.

It’s interesting that Google has decided to refresh its app so that it can become more of a one-stop shop for all of a person’s daily interests and events. The update is rolling out starting today on Android, and iOS users can expect the same update to arrive in the near future.
