Google updates the Feed for Android and iOS bringing you personalised news

The new offering is called "Google Feed", a name that may conjure comparisons to Facebook's "News Feed", a feature on Facebook used to browse updates from friends, family and other sources. A small number of users is apparently seeing both, meaning their build of the Google app contains four tabs in total, though screenshots proving that claim have yet to surface online.

Speaking to the Independent, Google described the reports as "not strictly accurate".

While the feed isn't a shift in business model for the web giant, it does signal a turning point in how the largest web giants are continuing to compete for users' attention.

People have long turned to Google to get answers, learn about the world, and dig deeper on topics they're passionate about.

Interaction basedWhat is changing is how Google populates it. If you are feeling bored, here is good news for you, Google coming up with the new homepage.




What appears on the news feed will be based on previous searches made by the user, as well as what's trending in their area and around the world. This new feature will pick up stories based on your interests and show them to you.

Therefore, from now on, Google's feed will analyze your search history and dig up content of interest. While the feed may initially batch up news preferences, it makes up for it by allowing people to explore and follow interests, such as sports, technology, or business.

The new feature in the Google app is now available for the Android and iOS for users in the United States as of this time, according to Neowin.

Google has since forever kept its famous homepage with its logo and a search box where billions of users daily search information.

We will see how this comes into the search real estate in the upcoming future, if any. It will be adding its Newsfeed relating to sports, events, and internet related subjects into Google.com page quite soon. Each stories will be provided with multiple options like dismissing it from your feed, or unfollowing the publisher or topic. This could come in handy for users who want to exclude results from one of their spur-of-the moment Google searches.
