Breaking news and top news on YouTube

Breaking news information panel in Search

An information panel providing breaking news may appear when there's a significant news event. When there's this sort of news, we may show developing stories from news sources that follow Google News content policies. The information panel will also link directly to the news website, so that you can easily access and read the full article about the event.

Breaking News shelf on the homepage

A Breaking News shelf appears on the YouTube homepage, except for users under 18. When there's a significant news event, the breaking news shelf on the homepage can be found by scrolling down the YouTube homepage. If you're not interested. the breaking news shelf on the homepage can be dismissed.

This is different from the information panel providing breaking news context in search results, as the info panel will only include text-based snippets from a news article, while the content on the homepage will include YouTube videos when available.

Top news shelf in Search

A Top News shelf in Search shows up if you look for news and we have relevant content from news sources that follow Google News content policies. The Top News shelf will show up regardless of age.

Top news shelf on your homepage

A top news shelf on your homepage may show if you watch or search for news content. The top news shelf will show up regardless of age, and will include relevant content from news sources that follow Google News content policies.
