Google News is one of the best platforms for the end users to read news from different news agencies at one place. Being a product of Google, you can always expect additional functionalities, which most other platforms do not offer. Some of the things that make Google News better than other news reading platforms is the recommendation of news of a particular type based on the current content or article, and suggested articles based on the likes of the user. With every update, Google News is pushing its limits to become the one-stop news platform for the news worms out there.
One of the special abilities of Google News is the provision to download news articles for later reading and the option to activate the dark mode to reduce strain on eyes at the time of continuous reading sessions. Apart from the two, Google News also offers a number of other nifty cool features that make it really great. So here I will discuss the ways to activate the night or dark mode for late night news readers, and the option to download the articles offline for later reading purposes.
