Google to update News tab with focus on headlines, publisher names

Google announces redesign for News tab in desktop Search

This new design will only be rolled out to the desktop in the next few weeks. Again, this is very much like the Google News app/site.

Through its official Twitter handle, Google has released a new design for News tab in its Google Search.

The News tabon Google's search results pages is a pretty big deal when you're trying to keep up with the world: for many people, it's their quickest way to find news stories on topics they're interested in.

Publishers will also possibly benefit from the redesign, as it now prominently shows links and the name of the publication for each news story.

Google says the redesign will roll out "over the next couple weeks", so if you don't have it already, give it some time.

Google Search Engine's result shows a variety of things including the latest news about a particular word or phrase you entered in the Search bar.

However, the most striking change coming out with this redesign is the new card-based layout, which more closely resembles the Google News experience on mobile devices.

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.

Google said it would begin rolling out this feature over the next few weeks. You can see several news links in the current News tab. For each news story, the Search Giant will add a blog link and the publisher's name. There's a grid of items with the top news, followed by individual cards for stories from publishers.
