Posted by Mayuresh Saoji, Product Manager, Google News [Edited 02/13/2013] Update: The new Google News experience for tablets is now available in most English editions worldwide. Hope you enjoy it! There’s something special about reading news on your tablet. Indeed, swiping through Google News on your tablet is a comfortable and effective way to find more articles from great publications that satisfy your needs and tickle your serendipitous interests. Starting today, Google News feels even more natural and fluid on tablet devices. For example:
  • 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.
We think these improvements will help Google News send even more visits to news sites (six billion per month and counting).  
To give it a try, just visit news.google.com with your Nexus 7, Nexus 10, or iPad.
