The U.S. Edition of Google News now lets you collect private, sharable badges for your favorite topics. The more articles you read on Google News, the more your badges level up: you can reach Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and finally Ultimate. Keep your badges to yourself, or show them off to your friends.
If you’re signed-in to a Google account and have web history enabled, you will earn badges as you click on articles in Google News. Both desktop and mobile clicks earn you badges. Tips:
- Badges will level up faster if you read a few relevant articles every day, rather than trying to read everything at once.
- You can click on a badge to see articles that will help the badge reach its next level.
- If you read a few articles a day about your favorite topics, you should earn your first badge in about a week.
