Google said to work on news prod­uct

Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

Al­pha­bet Inc’s Google is work­ing with pub­lish­ers on a news prod­uct called Stamp that would serve up ar­ti­cles in a mo­bile mag­a­zine-like de­sign, sim­i­lar to Snapchat’s Dis­cover ser­vice, Bloomberg re­ported cit­ing a per­son fa­mil­iar with the mat­ter.

Stamp evolved from me­dia re­la­tion­ships Google al­ready has for an­other one of its prod­ucts, called AMP, which is meant to help load ar­ti­cles faster.

‘The suc­cess of the open source AMP project is down to the con­stant col­lab­o­ra­tion with pub­lish­ers that in­volves work­ing early on up­com­ing fea­tures’, Google said on Fri­day. ‘We don’t have any­thing to an­nounce at the mo­ment but look for­ward to shar­ing more soon’.
