Google News Testing Updates

Google News has announced that they will be testing updates in the coming weeks. Only a few users will see the “experiments,” which will be based on research and feedback. Expect any changes to be related to the design of the site and the “evolving state of online journalism.”

Back in 2006, Google explained its testing process. “To learn more, we sometimes randomly select a group of people to see a possible improvement to search options. Or we may select a group of people and try out a new element while they’re searching. If you ever wonder why your Google site looks slightly different from that of the person sitting next to you, this is why.”

If you see any changes to Google News, let us know in the comments!
