Google has now partnered with some of the top news organizations and publishers to let people listen and know to curated, customized and long form of news stories with its Google Assistant enabled smart home speakers. From so many years the tech giant has worked with the publishes which include the Hollywood reporter, Washington Post, South China, and CNBC Morning post, for building a prototype that brings up the Artificial Intelligence of the Google News to the voice context of the Assistant.
“This new experience will bring you an audio news playlist assembled at that moment, for you. It starts with a briefing of top stories and updates on topics you care about, and extends into longer-form content that dives deeper into more stories,” Google said in a statement late Thursday.
You can ask the Google Assistant to skip up a story, to go back or stop. The prototype is now open for the news organizations that would soon be going to participate. It relies on the single topic stores which are segmented out from the newscasts or shows, to contribute to the audio news feed. Audio news on the Google Assistant will soon be going to roll out first to a limited number of people in the US in English. The effort is a part of the Google News Initiative.

“Publishers from around the world who produce English-language content are welcome to submit feeds for inclusion and sign up to try the experience,” Google informed.
To simply just help with this, Google New initiatives provided up with new funding to a number of news organizations such as the McClatchy and KQED to support up to the building out more audio capabilities for the entire industry as a whole.
