  • Google is rolling out a new service for Google Assistant that it’s calling “Your News Update”.
  • It’s hoping to foster a vibrant ecosystem of openly available audio news on the web so you can have audio stories begin to be as discoverable as text stories are.
  • In theory, if you skip enough stories or sources, Google’s algorithm will learn your preferences.
