How Google wants to be your primary choice to track breaking news
When I think of breaking news, I think about scrolling my timeline on Twitter to catch up on the latest developments in the story. Google wants to change that by adding a feature called Big Moments on its Google News.
It is a good platform to catch up on some news that you might have missed or read articles on different topics. However, it’s not the best place to track breaking news.
According to a report by The Information, a team within the company has been trying to develop features to draw you towards Google during critical events. It noted that the Big Moments feature aims to highlight breaking news and provide additional context when you’re looking for information about that event.
