Update: While new stories are starting to reflect on Google News, the date on all these stories is still November 6, 2015.
Google News India edition appears to be down at the moment, as it is reflecting all stories with the date November 6, 2015, which is two days old. Given that today is when the results of the Bihar election are being announced, this outage comes on a particularly important news day.
Google News is a key source of getting the latest headlines for many digital readers and with news.google.co.in reflecting older stories, the latest updates on the Bihar election are missing from the site. This also means bad news for news publishers, who depend on the forum to drive their traffic.
The site is also reflecting older stories on the mobile version of news.google.co.in. Google’s app status dashboard, does not mention any outage for Google New separately, and while downrightnow lists the service as being up. While the site is accessible, it is not reflecting the latest trends in Indian news for now.
Based on the support forum for Google News product, the US edition appears to be down and it appears to be a global problem. Google has not yet commented on these forums, with a reply.
Tell us in the comments what you are seeing on Google News and whether it is reflecting any new stories for you.
