Google is all-in on Artificial Intelligence (AI) with attempts being made to offer better information to you across all their platforms. In the future, expect lots more publications to provide news covering all sorts of topics.
Google is working on a new way for Google Assistant to bring news to users: personalized, short-form audio playlists.
Each news briefing kicks off with updates and top stories from the topics each individual user cares about, that leading into longer-form news covering other news stories.
In brief:Audio news within GoogleAssistant will deliver content without inundating consumers with advertisements. A limited number of US users will get access to the audio news initially; the company didn't say when it will expand the availability to other users. "At any point in your day when you want to listen to the latest news. the Google Assistant will be ready with new stories and updates to the ones you've already heard", saidGoogle. Among the participating new partners mentioned by Google, there are some prestigious names like New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post, theScore, Billboard, and The Hollywood Reporter.
Google worked with publishers like the Associated Press and South China Morning Post to develop the new system, which builds a custom news "playlist" each time you ask Assistant to read the news. The effort is part of the GoogleNews Initiative.
