Google News: Bigger Images, Real-Time Coverage
As part of a phased program of improvements, Google News is getting larger images and real-time coverage of important events. These changes apply to Google News' US edition only and will be rolling out over the next week or two.
A third new feature is available only to US users of Google+: real-time comments. When logged-in, they will be able to post comments and read those posted by others including public figures, journalists and people from their own circles.
