Google Assistant is Getting Better at Tellling You the News

Google Assistant is Getting Better at Tellling You the News

Google will curate news from a number of major outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press, NBC and USA Today. Google is looking to ultimately replace traditional news radio with audio news in Google Assistant.

Google has just announced that it will be relying on artificial intelligence to sift through news topics you're interested in and then deliver that news whenever you want.

The technology giant said it had partnerships with more than a dozen news organizations to deliver an audio feed in the same manner as its smartphone news feed. At any point in your day when you want to listen to the latest news-as a morning wake-up, during your commute, or while jogging-the Google Assistant will be ready with new stories and updates to the ones you've already heard. You'll even be able to skip stories, go back, or stop it altogether. Each playlist is "assembled in the moment", according to Google, and users can get it merely by stating, "Hey Google, play the news". However, the content is usually taken from television or radio casts. News organizations are given access to an open specification that enables them to contribute single-topic news stories to the news feed.

Right now, the new audio news feature is limited to a select few users, but Google will be expanding it to more Assistant users in the future.

"Imagine if you could have your own radio, one that's available on-demand, accessible throughout your day, and brings you news about the world and your interests", Google's Liz Gannes writes. For now, a story is expected to be less than two minutes for short-format entries and between two and 15 minutes for medium-format listings.
