How To Customize Content on Google Discover

Customize Content on Google Discover

Google finds out what you like to read every time you use its tools, and then finds articles to show you in Google Discover, its news section. But do not worry if you recommend news that is not of interest because u can customize the content you see in your feed.

Customize the content of the Google Discover feed, it’s easy!

Follow these steps to tell Google what you want to see in its news section:

How to choose the topics you want to see in Google Discover?

  • Enter the Google application.
  • Select a news item of interest.
  • Click on the options (it is on the three dots at the bottom right of the article card).
  • Click the Follow button.

That will make the best articles on those topics appear in your feed, and if you later lose interest in those topics, you can remove them from your interest list.

How to remove topics from your Google Discover interest list?

  • Enter the More section (it has three dots and is to the right of the menu).
  • Click on Settings.
  • Select the interests section (it has a magic wand).

There you will see the list of topics that you follow:

  • Click on the blue circle next to the topics of interest. This will eliminate them.

Below you will see the list of topics that Google selected for you based on your Internet activity. You can also remove these themes.

  • Click on the circle with a diagonal line.

This way you will not see articles on topics that are not of interest to you.

If you do not want to see news from a website or blog in question, you can make it not appear in your feed.

  • Press the “Do not show news from” button followed by the name of the media (in the example image you will see the name: “Okdiario”).

From there you can also block topics that you don’t want to see.

  • Select a news item of interest.
  • Click on the button that has a circle on a vertical line.

There you will see two options:

  • See more: click on the blue circle.
  • See less: click the red circle.
