1 If you use Google Chrome on your desktop PC and your smartphone
, your latest searches and visited pages can be displayed in both browsers provided you are logged into your Google account on each.
2 Your bookmarks will also be synced automatically in both mobile and desktop browsers and kept up to date in real-time. They are always up to date and will be available no matter where you are.
3 Many Google information services are also available on mobile devices via apps or webpages. Go to www.google.com/mobile/
to see what is available. Some will sync across devices automatically.
Keep up to date with Google News
Read the latest news stories straight away
Google is much more adept at presenting the latest breaking news in a format that is easy to understand when you’re using News, rather than the standard Search page. You can customise the sources and categories and even give weightings to each of them so that your preferences are met perfectly. Everything from the current weather to news stories that are happening near to you are included and therefore it makes sense to be logged into your Google account while using the service. The more Google knows about you, the more suitable the news stories will be and this is, of course, true for many Google services. Here we will show you how to make the News service work for you in the most efficient way possible.
Understand how Google News works
1: A busy page
Go to https://news.google.com to see a busy page showing breaking news items, the local weather and local news for your county.
2: Personalise it
Over to the right you will see a cog icon. Click on this and a series of bars will be shown for you to adjust, to alter the importance of categories.
3: Change the view
You can also change the way the news is presented by clicking the Modern icon, top-left. Each view is markedly different from the rest.
4: Detailed searching
Click the arrow in the search box at the top to search for news stories containing keywords. You will receive the story from multiple sources.
