Google Android Users May Emphasize Importance of News Recommendations

Google Android phones display news recommendations on the very left virtual screen (at least on my Pixel 5 phone). Until now, users only were able to remove entire news sources or topics, as shown below.

The “old” options to adjust recommendations

However, now, users seem also to be allowed choosing to see “more” or “less” news of a certain topic.

2021-08-18 Update: I just realized that this new feature is gone. It seems the “More” and “Less” choice was an A/B test that apparently wasn’t very successful.
