Google News No Longer In Beta
Posted on 25-Jan-2006 22:18. | Tags Filed under: News.



Google has moved the Google News service out of beta, and including a couple of new features. When introduced in September 2002 the service was aimed at enabling readers to get a broader perspective and dig deeper into the news.

The service was developed to deliver news in an entirely different way by presenting it in "clusters" that displayed related articles in a single group. In only a few years, Google News has grown to 22 regional editions in 10 languages.

In addition to taking Google News out of beta, the company is also introducing personalized news headlines. By integrating Personalized Search into Google News, users can now receive recommended news stories based on past news searches and articles read, giving them suggestions for interesting stories to explore that they may not have discovered otherwise.

Users who want to receive personalized news headlines must sign up for Personalized Search. Then, whenever users are signed in to their Google Account, recommended headlines will be shown based on what the logged user has read in the past. These results appear along the left hand column but users can also get a full page of recommended stories by clicking on the section.

A new section to the left-hand column shows the most popular recent stories in the Google News edition being viewed.
