Google News to make it easier for you to scan for stories that are interesting to you and let you dig deeper when you find them rolling out some new features. You can try this out by doing a search on Google News or by clicking on the "News" filter on the web search results page.

Here are the new features rolling out today:

  • "Click-to-expand news results clusters: Each news results cluster is collapsed down to one result with the exception of the first cluster. Click on the "Show more" link to see articles from more sources. This improvement makes it much easier to scan through the search results to find just the collection of news coverage you're looking for.
  • Multimedia: Within some of the expanded results clusters you'll see a bar of videos and photos that relate to each cluster's content. Click on any of these for more coverage of the story.
  • Layout updates: The cluster image now appears on the left and the source information has been moved to below the article links for better readability," informs Google.
