Google Revamps its Popular News App ‘Google Currents’
Search engine giant Google has redesigned its newsreader app Google Currents with an easy to use interface.
In its official blog on Thursday, Google said that the newly restructured app "optimizes news editions to look great on whatever type of device you're using. Now articles shine, with larger images and layouts that are intelligently optimized for your device, whether you're on a phone or a tablet."
Updated features in 'Google Currents' include:
- The app will now feature separate categories so that users can track their interests separately.
- The user can organise their favourite categories into groups. The categories will be displayed on a sidebar for easy access.
- The app has been made simpler to scan through headlines. The user can just swipe through the headline after reading to mark it as read. New stories will also roll out every time the app is opened.
- Google Currents uses Google's Search based technology to deliver the latest breaking stories in categories such as World, Entertainment, Sports, Science and more from the user's preferred news editions (websites). The app can be customised with prefered country and language.
The updated Google Currents is now available for Android devices and the iOS version will be released in the coming days. Buyers can click here to download the updated Google Currents at Google Play store.
