Google has added more than 50 newspapers, magazines, websites and TV stations to Fast Flip, the service that allows users to preview or 'flip' through news stories. Google Fast Flip was introduced in September and can currently be found in the Google Labs beta site.
Articles from UK newspapers The Telegraph, The Independent and The Express have been added, along with the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune. The Miami Herald and the Kansas City Star, the Huffington Post, Popular Science, Reuters, Public Radio International, POLITICO and US News & World Report are also added.
Fast Flip now indexes around 90 publications and aims, according to Google, to "make reading articles online as fast and simple as flipping through a magazine or newspaper".
Announcing the additions via a Google blog post, software engineer Jack Hebert said: "If you make it easier to read news online, people will read more of it. Users have told us they like being able to browse content so quickly, and we've been pleased with the amount of time they have spent reading articles in Fast Flip."
Hebert said that publishers are positive about the experiment, too.
"Our goal is to work with the industry to help it continue to innovate and build bigger audiences, better engage those audiences and generate more revenue," he said.
