Improved Tablet UI For Google News Begins Rolling Out To U.S. Users

Google is finally getting around to updating the Google News experience for tablet users. While this change most likely has to do with the surge in Nexus tablet sales, it’s a welcomed update for all. Tablet users (yes, even you iPad users) will now enjoy a more intuitive experience when catching up on current news via the Google News website.

Google highlights changes that include:

  • You can find new articles, news sources, and even topics of interest with intuitive gestures. Swipe horizontally between sections – from Business to Entertainment, for example – or tap “Explore in depth” to see multiple articles and other info related to a particular story.
  • We’ve also added more breathing room between articles, making it easier to spot the stories you really care about.

It looks like these changes are US only for now, but hopefully Google will include other countries soon. It may take a few days for the update to fully roll out but you can check now by visiting
