Google has added a new feature to its Google News application, for both Android and iOS, which allows users to access the latest news in two languages at the same time, displaying the results on the same search page. Google News becomes bilingual and will allow users to read news in two different languages from the same results page. For example, the user can read news written in English and, at the same time, in Korean.
In addition, the user will not only see the news published in a territory, but will receive news published by local media in both languages. Until now Google News showed the news of the media of a country, but now it will of the countries in which content is published in up to two languages chosen by the user.
Therefore, the user can keep up to date with the display of articles at the same time in more than one different language and thus find the editors and topics that interest him most from anywhere in the world.
This new feature of Google News is available in 141 countries and in 41 different languages, including Arabic, Bengali, Turkish, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Portuguese, Indonesian, Japanese, Kannada, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Lithuanian, Malayalam, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Latvian, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.
The news in Google News cannot be enjoyed in Spanish yet, where Google closed this section dedicated to the news in 2015. Specifically, the decision of the technology giant is explained by the entry into force of the Intellectual Property Law of 2015, which requires companies to provide financial compensation to publishers of articles by news aggregators such as Google News. The company considered this measure “unsustainable”.
