Google News Leaves Beta
Jan 25, 2006, 6:00 AM
After over three years in beta testing, Google this week officially launched Google News. Google also gave the product two new features--a section that highlights the most popular news stories of the day, and personalized headlines. Users interested in receiving personalized headlines can sign up for Google's personalized search, and, when signed into their Google Account, will receive recommended articles based on their past Google News searches and articles they've already read. Google News was first launched in beta in September 2002.
