Google News Blog: A better Google News experience on tablets

Posted by Mayuresh Saoji, Product Manager, Google News

There’s something special about reading news on your tablet. Indeed, swiping through articles brings to mind the familiar feeling of flipping through a favorite magazine or newspaper. Starting today, Google News feels even more natural and fluid on tablet devices. For example:

  • You can find new articles, news sources, and even topics of interest with intuitive gestures. Swipe horizontally between sections – from Business to Entertainment, for example – or tap “Explore in depth” to see multiple articles and other info related to a particular story.
  • We’ve also added more breathing room between articles, making it easier to spot the stories you really care about.

We think these improvements will help Google News send even more visits to news sites (six billion per month and counting).  
We’ll be rolling out this new experience in the US over the next few days. To give it a try, just visit news.google.com 
with your Nexus 7, Nexus 10, or iPad.
