The Beagle is now listed with Google News

Google launched its News Showcase App last Friday saying it was a better way to pay for news than the proposed News Media Bargaining Code. The bigger mastheads that have signed up will be paid monthly fees for three years. But not News Corp or Nine who both refuse. The first round of mastheads that have signed up and will receive the Google News Showcase funding include: Crikey, InDaily, New Daily, The Saturday Paper, The Conversation, the Newcastle Herald, Canberra Times and Illawarra Mercury. Google said it will add titles that will receive payment to that list in the coming weeks and months. While The Beagle has declined the option to be paid for content we are more than excited and thankful to Google for allowing our humble news to be included in their stable. It means for anyone who follows a variety of main news sources can now find their favourites (except Nine and Newscorp) on the Google News App. Be sure to add The Beagle to your homescreen
