News Showcase is launching in Mexico

“El Universal welcomes the innovation of Google News Showcase,” says David Aponte, editorial director at El Universal, one of Mexico’s largest daily newspapers. “We are confident that we will continue with our leadership role in digital platforms in the country and Latin America with this pioneering way to distribute relevant editorial content, both national and international. It will help continue to contribute to a society that demands truthful and quality information,” says Antonio Valle, El Universal’s director of technology and transformation.

Globally, we have signed deals with over 2,000 publications and the product is live in 20 countries. In Latin America, this initiative is already available in Colombia, Argentina and Brazil, with more than 190 agreements signed and nearly 280 publications included in News Showcase among these countries.

News Showcase panels, created by participating publishers in Mexico, provide even more ways to engage with readers, and direct them to full articles on news publications’ websites. This enables publishers to deepen their relationships with readers – and gives them more direct control of presentation and branding. Our Mexico news partners’ News Showcase panels will begin appearing on Google News on Android, iOS and the web, and in Discover on iOS and Android.
