Google to launch redesigned News tab

Google is building and rolling out an update to the Google Search News tab. The revamped design will be limited to the desktop version of Google Search and will be a major departure from the existing look that is mostly a list of stacks with grouped links on various news items about the search term.

Again, this is very much like the Google News app/site. The company hasn't shared many details, but the company did say that the new design will reach the users over the next few weeks. One prominent addition is a carousel that notes what "People also search for".

Google said it would begin rolling out this feature over the next few weeks. For example, a search for "MLB" hones in on the most timely MLB topic (National League All-Star voting results) and the stories of three mainstream publishers (CNN, the Washington Post and USA Today) are featured front and center, highlighted in boxes. For instance, if you search for "women's soccer world cup", stories from major news organizations will show up in boxes, and other links will have their individual cards - as opposed to a jumble of links like you're now used to. "While it's clear that the new design is a lot less busy than its predecessor, it'll be harder to get an idea of the breadth of coverage or read related news stories", Amrita Khalid wrote.

The design includes more white space than the current version but also provides less information per page.
