Google News Gets a Much-Needed Redesign to Cut Down on Clutter and Confusion

Google today unveiled a new look for its 14-year-old news reader that makes the web service much easier to digest. The Google News page now has three sections located at the center of the homepage: a top headlines list, a local list, and a personalized “For You” section containing stories in interest areas you’ve preselected. These efforts will go a long way in helping Google stay competitive with mobile-first news readers like Apple News and the built-in news delivery mechanisms of Facebook and Twitter.

Borrowing some elements from its mobile app and search engine design philosophy, Google has also transitioned the news reader to a card-based interface. That way, every story gets its own clutter-free rectangle with links to related coverage and subjects and more prominent photo placement, as well as more thoughtful placement of key information points like article source, headline, and publish time.
