Google has made design updates to the Google News Publisher Center. I don't know if new functionality was added, it does not appear so, but maybe I am missing something. I'll be honest, I do not use the publisher center that often, so I'm really not sure.

Google last updated the Publisher Center back in December 2019 when Google changed the inclusion process which has been a horror for many publishers.

This was spotted by the non-Google unofficial @PublisherCenter account on Twitter (really shouldn't be using that name on Twitter). He also said the help content was updated too but didn't say what was updated.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: Google has now posted about this update saying "Publisher Center has been updated to make the user experience easier and clearer. A new section called 'Publication settings' allows users to edit general information like the publication name, URLs, and logos from one section. Google News publications and policies remain unchanged."
