Easy Ways To Find Spanish News In Google News
Can I read news in Spanish in Google News?
No. While previously Google News would serve news headlines and articles directly from Spanish newspapers, a recent development in Spain bans Google News to do so. According to a law passed in December 2014, Spanish newspapers need to be paid for content. This law was passed keeping in mind the benefits of local publishers, however this same law led to Google News stop using and displaying any content or news snippet directly from Spanish newspapers. This is because Google never pays to show headlines from newspapers from any country. Consequently, Google News went offline in Spain, and users in Spain have no access to Google News any more. The passing of this legislation led to a two-way blockage for Spanish news enthusiasts, Google News will not show any headlines or content directly from local Spanish newspaper publications, and Google News will not be accessible by anyone living in Spain.
How do I have access to Spanish news in Google News?
While Google News might have stopped showing direct news snippets from local Spanish newspapers, this does not mean one cannot have access to Spanish news. You can still learn about developments in Spain by reading snippets of English news translated from Spanish newspapers that write about Spain, albeit from outside Spain as Google News is no longer available in the country.
