Google this month rolled out Google News Showcase, new story panels with stories that appear within Google’s news products.
According to Google, Google News Showcase is being rolled out this month in Germany and Brazil and will be first available in Google News on Android. Google says Google News Showcase will launch soon on Google News on iOS, and will come to Google Discover and Search in the future.
Publishers can curate what appears in Google News Showcase. Google states that Google News Showcase leans on the editorial choices of each publisher.
Google News Showcase has timelines, bullets, and related articles as components. Google says video, audio, and daily briefings will come next.
Google partnered with nearly 200 leading publications across Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, the U.K., and Australia for News Showcase. Publications include Der Spiegel, Stern, Die Zeit, Folha de S.Paulo, Band, and Infobae. Google expects to expand News Showcase to other countries including India, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
