Audio news on the Google Assistant has started to roll out to a "limited number of people" in the USA, with publishers from around the world who produce English-language content invited to sign up and submit feeds for inclusion.

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

Apparently you'll be able to skip news stories - but it's really the immediacy of these stories that will make the difference.

Google has partnered withsome of the top news organisations and publishers to let people listen tocurated, customised and long-form news stories via its Google Assistant-enabledsmart home speakers. Google is looking to change how media is consumed with Assistant by adding a new audio news feature. Google's latest Assistant feature uses AI to help collect these news according to your choices, and it's released today for a small number of users.

The search giant is collaborating with numerous publishers across the globe in the endeavor, including The Associated Press, The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and has built an open specification prototype in an effort to bring more news organizations into the fold. However, the content is usually taken from television or radio casts.

Google is now searching the options they got for the future of audio news on Assistant with Google News and publications around the world.

As result, expect the new audio experience to deliver shorter and punchier content, with less intro music, and for now, no ads. After that, Assistant will select a few longer, more detailed stories. Amazon, meanwhile, has a similar feature for Alexa devices, dubbed Flash Briefing, that brings together news, weather and other tidbits of information.
