This year marks the 20th anniversary of Google News and Google is celebrating by redesigning the Google News platform for desktops. Google News is available on most modern-day platforms like Android, iOS, and desktops. While the Android and iOS version of the application looks modern and updated. The desktop version carried a very old design for so long. Now, Google has changed the desktop version of the service and it looks more modern and organized.
Google changed the old boring look of the Google News platform to something similar to what we have seen on smartphones. The new design approach resembles the Android and iOS design of Google News, however, it is not completely the same. To start with, the Google News logo is at the top left corner and the search bar next to it. Now, the navigation bar is also changed as it is available at the top under the search bar. Previously, it was placed on the left hand side of the screen.
