The A.I.-powered, redesigned service combines elements found in Google’s digital magazine app, Newsstand, as well as YouTube, and introduces new features like “newscasts” and “full coverage” to help people get a summary or a more holistic view of a news story. The updated version will present a briefing at the top of the page with the five stories you need to know about right now, as well as more stories selected just for you. The feature uses A.I. technology to read the news on the web, to assemble the key things you need to know about, including also local news and events in your area. And the more you use this personalized version of Google News, the better it will get, thanks to the “reinforcement learning” technology under the hood.

2017. Feedly adds team boards, notes and annotations
News reading service Feedly has introduced Boards, a feature that makes it easier to organize the stories you want to save for yourself, or share with others on a team. This feature is ideal for business users and co-workers who want to track stories about clients, projects or other interests. You can add story to a board of your choosing or save it to multiple boards. The Teams product is where Boards can become even more useful.

2015. News reader Flipboard launches new ads targeting based on user interests
Flipboard adds better targeting to its advertising partners in the form of the advertising based on the interest graphs it has built for its users. For example, an advertiser that chooses to advertise with coffee topics may also have their ads shown with craft beer topics. The reason behind that, is that many of the same people who read stories about coffee also care about stories about craft beer. The goal for this kind of ad product was to essentially recreate the advertising experience that is seen in magazines — with high-quality ads being placed against content that might not be directly relevant, but is nonetheless related. That more or less fits in line with Flipboard’s overall mission of emulating the magazine experience on a mobile device.
