A new test comes from one of the most used Google services on Android smartphones: Discover. The news section, integrated into the company’s application, has just included the option of give “likes” to articles that interest each user. And the total number of cores is displayed as a counter.
Google adds small, renewal changes to its apps on an ongoing basis, often unnoticed by everyone who uses its services and apps. The Assistant is constantly releasing new features, also apps like the Play Store or the news section, known as Google Discover. It is very useful for discover attractive and recent information
Do you like the news? Like to discover
The new interface of Google Discover does not change from the previous one, except for a small button under each news. And it’s perfectly recognizable, especially for anyone who is used to social networks: it’s a little heart. Tapping on it tells Google that the news is interesting for the user, so it will consider the “Like” for future news recommended by Discover.
In addition to being used to improve recommendations, the new Like button allows you to offer potential readers a demo of how interesting the news is. Google Discover will reflect the number of heart clicks in the feed. This will have a few implications which are surely what Google is looking for:
- It will be much easier for users identify what is most interesting of all the news that appears in your Google feed.
- The pages that appear in Discover will receive more traffic the higher the heart rate counter number.

The change is already active for many users: just go to Google Discover (left side of the offices) to start giving heart to all the news that deserves it. The counter will reflect the number of “likes” because it is extended to a greater number of users.
