Google is working on an update to its fast mobile pages initiative, known as AMP or Google’s Instant Articles, that will surface breaking news and real-time alerts to the top of mobile search results.
In a presentation Google has made to several publishers this summer, the company has outlined plans for a new “live ticker” section, which will be placed above the “top stories” carousel that currently shows up during mobile search results. The ticker will present “the best super-fresh content from different sources around the web,” and content in the section will be AMP only, Google says in the presentation.
