According to recent rumors, Apple is looking to Revamp its news service but it seems that they might not be alone in doing this. A report from AdAge (via 9to5Google) has revealed that Google has similar plans as well and that their news revamp could be taking place very soon at I/O 2018.
The report claims that Google News will be getting a brand new design that is expected to incorporate elements from the Newsstand app as well as videos from YouTube. It also claims that as a result, Google could end up killing off Newsstand in favor of this consolidated app which would no doubt streamline everything.
A publishing executive who was briefed on Google’s plans and who spoke to AdAge on condition of anonymity was quoted as saying, “It’s a consolidation of all the ways you can interact with news on Google. There are a lot of Google services where you find news, and what they’re trying to do is bring it all under one brand.”
