Google has just announced that it will be relying on artificial intelligence to sift through news topics you're interested in and then deliver that news whenever you want.

The audio news playlist will be made in some seconds after you request one.

Schoop, Twins agree to $7.5 million, 1-year contract
He was claimed off waivers by the Cubs last week, then became a free agent when the Cubs didn't offer a 2019 contracts. The 27-year-old finished the season with a.233 batting average with 21 home runs and 61 RBIs.

"It starts with a briefing of top stories and updates on topics you care about, and extends into longer-form content that dives deeper into more stories", said a Google spokesperson. The intention is that end users will be able to listen to news during their morning routines.

Audio news on the Google Assistant has started to roll out to a "limited number of people" in the USA, with publishers from around the world who produce English-language content invited to sign up and submit feeds for inclusion.

Keeping playoff hero Eovaldi a risk Red Sox could afford to take
Eovaldi had Tommy John surgery in 2007 when he was a junior in high school and his second in August 2016 while with the Yankees. It's not hard to find reason for caution with Nathan Eovaldi's new contract with the Boston Red Sox.

Google will be rolling out these intelligent news broadcasts to "a limited number of people via the Google Assistant in the United States in English" to begin with, so we may see these at some stage in the future. But now the company collaborated with The Associated Press, The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times and The Washington Post - among other services to offer up on-demand, up-to-the-minute news. And if you don't like what's playing, you can always ask the Assistant to jump to the next story. And it has built an open specification for news organizations that would like to participate going forward. The effort is part of the GoogleNews Initiative. Google is looking to ultimately replace traditional news radio with audio news in Google Assistant. This is not speakable markup. or YouTube videos playing on the Google Home Hub, this is real audio news, like broadcaster, podcaster, etc that produce audio form content.
