Google News has a feature called ‘full coverage’ which will now appear directly in Google Search for some results. Google has said that this will make it easier for users to explore stories from a variety of perspectives.
Full coverage is a 360 degree view of a topic that updates in real time. This will appear in Search when you are looking for a timely topic. You will see the usual carousel of news articles. If you then click the ‘more news’ button, which is below the carousel, you will see the full coverage page for that topic.
If you work within news publishing, then you may see changes in how your content is surfacing and the amount of traffic you receive.
