Google has also released a video alongside the announcement that demonstrates just what it has in mind for the future of audio news delivery.

Google has recently announced in a blog post that an interesting new feature is going to roll out to the Google Assistant.

The audio news playlist will be made in some seconds after you request one.

Google has been working with a number of publishers across the globe including The Associated Press, Hollywood Reporter, Universo Online and the South China Morning to re-think how they're delivering your audio news briefings.

Audio journalism requires new capabilities and workflows for both print publishers and broadcasters, whether it's adding a sound booth or segmenting larger broadcasts into shorter stories.

According to the company, this new rundown starts with a briefing on some of the top stories of the day and brings you any updates regarding ones you've already heard. Other audio news sources interested in participating can refer to the public specification published on the Google developer site. "Plus, using your voice, you can easily ask the Google Assistant to skip a story, go back or stop".

Audio news on the Google Assistant has started to roll out to a "limited number of people" in the United States, with publishers from around the world who produce English-language content invited to sign up and submit feeds for inclusion. The new feature is available in English right now.

All media outlets and publishers may now submit feeds to Google for inclusion in the new feature, but there are content guidelines that must be followed.

The biggest advantage from a consumer standpoint is that Google is not allowing any sponsored content in its audio news.
