Google has announced that it has signed deals with publishers such as The Financial Times, The Independent, The Telegraph and Reuters in the United Kingdom, and says it will start curating from a total of more than 120 news media. Most of the media participating in the program are local newspapers that do not have the resources of digital migration that major newspapers have.

The Google News Showcase is essentially a system where Google takes over the subscription fee, allowing users to read some of the articles delivered as paid content for free. Google says it helps journalism and 'helps users better understand what's more important to them.'

The news showcase panel extends the news that readers are seeing, saying, 'Editors of publishers who deliver news can explain complex topics and deepen their understanding.' “We'll give publishers more ways to explain in their own voice, giving them more direct control over presentations and branding,” Google said.

On the same day, Google also announced the launch of the Google News Showcase in Argentina and Australia. Forty publishers in Argentina and seven publishers in Australia have agreed to the deal. In the past, Google also suggested that Google search would be withdrawn from Australia over the payment of content usage fees.
