Google is launching a new "smart feed" to give mobile users the tailored news they want - before they've even asked for it. Of Course, Till now Google Maps is the better App to hit the road at any time.

In a statement to The Independent, Google has dismissed the reports as "not strictly accurate".

Machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence, requires a lot of data to train algorithms to address individual-level peculiarities and interests. Today they are back, aiming to do so with a new news feed that caters to what interests you the most. Although the focus will be on showing the user fresh content, Google will veer more towards the role of an article aggregator.

As some are aware, over the past few years, #Google has made changes to its search results pages.

There was a personalized homepage on Google once called iGoogle which started operating in May 2005 and ended in November 2013, but it was just for those who logged in and used iGoogle, the feed was not available on Google search page by default.

The feed will be based on your interactions with the search engine, but also take trending topics from your area into consideration.

Users can unfollow any topics they don't want to see in their feed, similar to how Facebook does it, according to Tech Crunch.


Therefore, from now on, Google's feed will analyze your search history and dig up content of interest. It can be based on your favorite search topics or from publishers you often visit.

Since its inception, Google's homepage has not changed much.

To help deal with the overwhelming news and fake news online, Google will show a variety of sources and even make it easier for you to fact check as well as see relevant information on news stories.

By Scrolling down on the Google App, we can access the feed on the Android and iOS.

"Google has a long term project of anticipating user needs".

In addition to putting Google Feed on mobile apps, the company is looking at attaching it to web browsers in some form, said Shashi Thakur, another Google vice-president for engineering.
