Google has just revealed a feature called 'Your News Update'

It is a personalised news reading service

This feature will allow your Google Assistant read the news to you

Google have really been on a roll recently. From the release of Stadia, the American tech giant has now rolled out a new feature in the US called ‘Your News Update’. This is essentially Goggle’s very own news reader as the Assistant will now be able to read the news aloud. This allows the Assistant to read the news from a tailored feed which is based on a particular user’s interests. This gives people who don’t have the time to read the paper or even the news app an easy way of catching up with world events. 

Users who want to enable the feature will have to head to your Assistant Settings and choose a new option rather than News briefings. If done correctly, all you need to do now is say the phrase, “Hey Google, play me the news” and the Assistant will start reading out the news to you. Just remember that this will be a personalized service. 

The stories that you will be listening to are essentially made up based on your particular interests and hobbies. This doesn’t mean that the top news stories won’t show up. Far from it as the feature will also pull up all the latest and top stories of the day. Basically, the Assistant will now behave like a newscaster and give you a aural breakdown of the day’s events.

As of now, the feature is only available in the United States but we’re pretty sure that the feature will be expanding into other markets in 2020. But for now, only users in the US can access the feature.
