Google News for Android tablets and iPads just got a few minor enhancements in addition to improvements to the Google News design for smartphones, that the Google News team is working on to enhance the product for tablet devices.

"We have optimized columns in the home page and section pages so that they can be more easily viewed in portrait and landscape orientations," informs the Tech Lead, Mobile Google News.

"Some of the other updates include: a conveniently placed menu on the top for navigating across sections, support of finger swiping through the multimedia strip in expanded story boxes and a more friendly edition picker."

These improvements are now available in the U.S. edition.

To view these changes, just type news.google.com on the browser of your favorite tablet.
