Google i one of the first places you look when you need to find a news, article or a breaking incident. But, for a long time, Google has failed to keep up with the rate at which the internet searches for news. According to a new report from The Information, Google is currently working on improving how it processes news. To deliver breaking news to Google News, the firm is working on a new feature dubbed “Big Moments.”
Google News now operates by listing content after they’ve been published for many hours. Take this article, for example: if you’re reading it on Google News or the Google feed on your homepage/Chrome, it’s possible that it’s been online for hours. Google operates by evaluating an item, comparing it to previously published articles. And then ranking is based on the user’s interest, among other factors.
However, this is not the best-case scenario for breaking events where people need information quickly.
Google appears to be preparing to take on how Twitter handles breaking news with “Big Moments”. These Big Moments will give context for ongoing events by presenting the most authoritative data regarding a single occurrence in real-time. Such as death and injury figures, and updating them as new information becomes available.
Google’s Big Moments feature, according to the article, has been in development for more than a year. The functionality is being expanded in response to Google’s inability to keep up with events such as the US Capitol siege on January 6th of this year.
There is no information on when the Big Moments will be available. According to Bloomberg, every product or upgrade to our systems goes through a thorough testing and assessment process to guarantee it offers value to users. So, it may be some time before we see the feature in action.
