Over the last few weeks, Google has been slowly rolling out new designs for virtually all of its web-based products, including Google Search, Gmail, Good Docs and Maps. Today, Google News joined these products and the company’s news aggregation service now sports a new design as well. Besides the cleaner look with more whitespace and less clutter, Google also decided to stress the personalization feature by highlighting it more clearly at the top of the page.
In terms of features, nothing has changed with this new design. Google user experience designer Jasson Schrock did note in today’s announcement, though, that we will see more changes to the layout and design of the site in the coming months.
For the time being, this new design is only available for users in the U.S., but Google plans to bring this new look to international users in the coming months.
