Google News to receive an important new feature in 2020
Beyond the Headlines is one of the important new features that Google News users will get next year. It's meant to “connect readers with in-depth articles exploring important issues such as healthcare, the environment, education and more.”
More importantly, Beyond the Headlines offers Google News users an estimated read-time feature, which lets them know how long it takes to read a story. Some media outlets already have this feature implemented on their websites, so it's nice that Google has decided to show it the news app as well.
According to Google, these pieces of news are surfaced and organized using Google News algorithms. Beyond the Headlines is now available on desktop globally in US English, so if you can't wait until next year until it comes to mobile, you can check it out right now.
