A new Google News may try to beat filter bubbles

Google I/O was not only AI phone calls. The Google News app will be revamped, and two features are striking - the "full coverage" and "newscast". Both promise to give you a comprehensive look on news events by compiling video, articles and more from different sources on a single news topic. This may be a (pre-emptive) move over criticism on being responsible how me see the world. Also worth noting, if you saw the keynote, how much they emphasized towards publishers that "we come in peace" .-)
