Google News Mobile Edition Days Behind?

Apr 17, 2009 • 9:00 am | comments (1) by | Filed Under Google Search Engine

Early April, many mobile users, who use Google Mobile for News, noticed that Google News on their mobile device was not updating. In fact, the news was outdated for days on their devices. The issue seemed to have resolved itself for many a few days later, so I decided not to report it.

Now the issue seems to be springing up again. We have a report in the Google News Help discussion area from one mobile user who said the news is now "over 10 hours" delayed. I personally checked myself and the news seems as recent as 30 minutes. But this may have to do with browser caching or something similar that caused the issue a week or so ago.

Googler, Inbal, said:

Thanks for the heads up, our mobile engineers are on top of this issue. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to resolve this in the near future.

It might be a user specific issue or might be a bigger issue. I am not sure.
