Google NewsGoogle News announced three new changes to the Google News portal and is testing another Google News feature.

The announced changes include that Google is adding a sports box on some pages, adding a new weather widget to the page and also expanding the editors picks section to subsections.

I should note, that the weather forecasts may be buggy, as there is one report in the Google News Help forum about a bug. But overall, it does seem to work for me.

In other Google News news, Google is testing larger images in the news search results. Here are screen grabs of this in action from Google OS blog.
