Google is latest tech giant to claim space in news
(Associated Press) - October 7, 2015 - 8:34am

NEW YORK — Technology giants — Apple, Facebook, Snapchat and now Google — want to take charge of how we get and see news on our phones.

Google on Wednesday was the latest company to announce a news-focused tool that it says will speed how fast stories load after a Google search as reading news is increasingly something we do from a hand-held gadget.

Facebook in May started testing "Instant Articles," which load news stories faster from a handful of publishers inside the social network's mobile app. Apple's News app came automatically built into the latest version of its mobile operating system with stories from dozens of media brands. The Discover feature of disappearing-messages app Snapchat launched in January and currently has stories and video from 14 different media companies.
