The News tab on the Google search results pages is quite important when you try to stay up to date with the world: for many people, it is the fastest way to find news about topics that interest them. The search giant is now renovating this section on the desktop, where it looks messy and difficult to scan, to align it with its mobile equivalent and improve readability.
According to the Google news initiative Tweet, each link will have its own card, allowing more space. For example, if you search for "women's soccer world cup", the stories of the main news organizations will be shown in boxes, and other links will have their individual cards, unlike a lot of links like the one you are currently used to.
You can also click on each card to see the preview of the story. Press the play button on the video embedded in the tweet for a closer look.
In the coming weeks, we are rolling out a redesigned News tab in Search on the desktop. The renewed design makes the names of the editors more prominent and organizes the articles more clearly to help you find the news you need. Take a look 👇 pic.twitter.com/xa2aZfO4Qd

The editors will also benefit from the redesign, as it now prominently displays the links and the name of the publication for each news item. In addition, the design of the cards will show the complete title instead of showing it up to a certain character limit, as shown in the following screen.
TThe update is scheduled to be extended in a few weeks, so it may be a while before you see the updated page layout.
