How the Google News feed gets more personal

The redesigned Google News now brings Top Stories, Local News, and personalized picks to the top of the page on your desktop. Google has moved the local news section to the top of the page to make it easier to find. This also added a filter button to add multiple locations to your local news section, so you never miss the important news and updates about the cities and towns you care about.
OOne of the notable and biggest changes is in the different categories of news, including business, science, health, world, and politics, which used to be on the left, but have now been moved to a menu bar at the top.
And to make it more custom, Google News has the ability to customize the topics that appear so you can scroll and read through the stories that interest you most. This even gives you an option to add, remove or reorder topics by just tapping the blue Customize button in the top right corner. This makes the Google News desktop homepage clearer and more personal.
