London, May 7 (ANI): Internet search giant Google's news service 'Google News' is undergoing a makeover and will now include content from the firm's new social network.
Google News, which has only gone live in the U.S. to date, will see Google+ conversations from people's 'circles' and other high profile users right onto the search engine's news homepage.
In a blog post about the changes, Scott Zuccarino, product manager of Google News, said the feature brings Google+ conversations right to the Google News homepage.
"Many news stories inspire vibrant discussions on Google+, and today we're starting to add this content to both the News homepage, and the real-time coverage pages," Zuccarino wrote.
According to The Telegraph, the latest move to weave the Facebook rival into one of Google's most powerful products is a bid to boost the popularity of the service.
The other significant change in Google News is the addition of real-time coverage on a topic.
The 'real-time' button would allow people to see the latest news articles listed chronologically. Beneath that is a list of comment pieces or in-depth articles. (ANI)
