How News Works on Google

Our purpose

To help everyone understand the world by connecting people with high quality news from a variety of perspectives

Trustworthy and timely information empowers people to better understand the world around them and make educated decisions. Journalism provides that information when it matters the most, shaping our understanding of important issues and pushing us to learn more and seek the truth.

Google aims to make it easier to stay informed by using technology to organize what journalists are reporting about current issues and events. We don’t have an editorial point of view. Instead, Google products are designed to connect you with a broad array of information and perspectives to help you develop your own point of view and make informed decisions. We’re committed to fostering a healthy and diverse news ecosystem because we know journalism is vital to strong, functioning societies.
