YouTube adds ‘breaking news’ section to homepage and mobile app

YouTube is usually one of the first places to look for breaking news, and now Google seems to be making that even easier by adding a “Breaking News” carousel to its mobile apps and homepage.

The new section appears similar to a recommended channel on the web homepage, and as a scrollable carousel in the mobile app between suggested videos.

For now, it’s unclear whether Google is populating this section algorithmically or curating content by hand, or whether or not it’ll even appear at all times or just during breaking news cycles. Still, it’s another useful addition to the front page of YouTube that will hopefully help keep people informed of all the things happening around the globe.
