To use this feature, visit Google News from the browser of your Android smartphone or iPhone. If this is the first time you are visiting Google News on your phone since this feature became available, a pop-up will ask you if you want to share your location. If you say yes, news relevant to your location will appear in a new section called “News near you” which will be added at the bottom of the homepage. You can reorganize the sections later via the personalization page

You can turn off the feature at any time either by hiding the section in your personalization settings or by adjusting your mobile browser settings.Now when you’re checking up Google News on your phone, you don’t have to read about stuff that doesn’t concern you. Google News “News near you” is available on all iPhones and Android phones now.

“We do local news a bit differently, analyzing every word in every story to understand what location the news is about and where the source is located,” the search engine giant said in its blog post.
