Google to add RSS functionality to Google News

Google will enhance its Google News service with RSS functionality on Tuesday.

Google plans to enhance its Google News article search service on Tuesday by adding content syndication, according to executives from the company.

The new feature will allow Google News users to set up RSS (Really Simple Syndication) or Atom content syndication feeds for specific Google News sections, such as entertainment, business or world news, and for specific terms users search for on Google News, such as "George Bush," "diabetes" or "space shuttle."

Users will also be able to set up RSS or Atom feeds for customised sections they create on Google News.

"This is another way of allowing users to access Google News information," said Debbie Jaffe, Google's senior product marketing manager for consumer products.

This is the single most requested feature by Google News users, said Nathan Stoll, Google News product manager.

The Google news feeds can be delivered to any RSS or Atom news reader service, including the personalized home page that Google offers users, which contains such a service, Jaffe said.

The new feature works only for Google News editions in English, which include sites for the US, the UK, Australia and several other countries, Stoll said.

Google is not announcing any plans to extend the content syndication feature to Google News editions in other languages, he said, adding that Google has 22 localised editions of Google News in nine different languages.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
