YouTube adds ‘breaking news’ section

YouTube is normally one of the principal spots to search for breaking news, and now Google is by all accounts making that much simpler by including a “Breaking News” carousel to its mobile apps and landing page of youtube.

The new area seems like a recommended channel on the web landing page, and as a scrollable carousel go round in the mobile application between recommended recordings. At the time of production, the breaking news area was largely focus on reports of Steve Bannon leaving his position from white house

For the time being, it’s unclear whether Google is populating this area algorithmically or curating content by hand, or regardless of whether it’ll even show all the time consistently or simply during breaking news cycles. It’s another valuable expansion to the front page of YouTube that will ideally enable keep to individuals educated during quick new cycles.
