For some time, Google News has been offering people personalized content that shows content that you believe is relevant to what you expect, based on the topics you're interested in would the news. Now it looks as if the personalization will go to Google Assistant.
Google has announced that Google Assistant can read personalized messages to the user. Then the company will use the AI to curate personalized Google News articles and apply them to Google Assistant. "This new experience will provide you with an audio playlist that has been put together right now. It begins with a briefing of top stories and updates on topics that interest you, and extends to longer-form content that delves deeper into other stories. "
There are not many news organizations / publications at the moment, as this seems to be a test / prototype. However, Google has since developed an open specification that news organizations and publishers can follow if they want to participate. We can imagine adding more releases later, but for the moment most of the main sources seem to be there.
