Google News for mobile has added a new feature into it, News Near You, which will enable users to access localised news.
For this service, users will not have to enter their location details in the search. Rather, the news service will automatically detect the user’s location to serve news to that particular user.
To use this feature, users need to visit Google News from the browser of his Android smartphone or iPhone. For a new user, a pop-up will ask for location details. If the user agrees to that, news relevant to the location will appear in a new section called “News Near You” at the bottom of the homepage.
Users can also turn off the feature if they do not want to share their location or they do not wish to read local news by simply adjusting the mobile browser settings.
This application, however, is available only in the US English language.
