Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:43 pm

Today Google announced that after the launched of the English-language edition in September 2002, Google news is finally out of beta.

A bit more than three years later, Google offers Google news in 22 regional editions in 10 languages, with email alerts, ability for users to create a personalized page and adding a way to automatically recommend stories for users with Personalized Search.

The new Personalized Search works like this: When you’re signed in to your Google Account, you’ll receive recommended news stories based on the previous stories you’ve read. These recommendations will be highlighted just below the top news stories on the page, in a clearly marked section. You can also get a full page of recommended stories by clicking on the section. All of this is done automatically using algorithms.
