People noticed a new design for Google News, which is part of an experiment Google is currently running. An employee at Google posted a message in the Google News Help Forum:
At Google, we run anywhere from 50 to 200 experiments at any given time on our websites all over the world. Right now, we are running a small test of a new Google News homepage design. More information about how Google runs experiments can be found here.
Like with any experiment, Feedback is wanted and Google is looking for feedback from consumer’s who have seen the new design. So let them know what you think about the redesign by clicking here.
Someone described the new design as “focusing on a single category of news at a time.” The user can click on a different category to view that. Unlike the current design where many categories are all on the home page and arranged based on the user’s preference. As of now, the feedback for those who have used the new Google News design has given positive feedback.
