Though we may not know these at first, API use can really be a game-changer for a business.

Let us look into the case of NEWS APIs.

A few top news publications also use snippets to retarget you on social platforms. There is also a lot of third party software that aggregate news from different publications in their mobile application.

The displaying of news articles from this is possible via news APIs which are used by the application or web page.

Google news

Google News is the news aggregator service developed by Google. It provides the top news articles with uncompromised coverage from all top media websites.

Since Google itself is a search engine, it presents a continuous flow of links to articles organized by thousands of publishers and magazines.

Google News is available as an app on Android, iOS, and the Web. In Android mobiles, Google News is inbuilt and the news will be displayed based on the user’s search intent (how awesome!)

Google News API

The Google news API was one of the famous News APIs which lets you integrate Google News search results into your application or web pages.

This API can be used to get data on trending news articles, local news, stories, headlines, topics, URLs, and other news items from Google searches.

It is an undeniable fact that Google is the go-to option for anyone to search for news or any information for that matter.

Not only individual users, but all businesses also rely on Google to stay updated with the latest news and trending updates in their business market.

Even though Google provides you unmatched results for all search queries, the Google NEWS API was shut down.

Bing News API

Bing news search engine is the next big player in the Search Engine market.

There is a dedicated Bing news API called Bing news search API that provides live breaking news similar to the google news API.

  • This API lets you send a search query to Bing and get back a list of news that is relevant to the search query.
  • Integrate easily with step-by-step tutorials, developer documentation, and code samples that are readily available.

Bing News powered by artificial intelligence processes billions of global searches, providing you access to data and news articles from all around the world.

Using Bing news API can enrich your app or website with world news filtered by topic, local news, and searchable metadata.

However, other search engines like Yahoo does not have a yahoo news API. They use the yahoo search engine technology for Yahoo Weather API, Yahoo Sports API, etc.
