Google Top Stories Full Coverage Button

I am pretty sure the "full coverage" button for the Top Stories section is new but it is not exactly what was demonstrated at Google I/O a few months ago. Glenn Gabe spotted this yesterday, posted it on Twitter and I can replicate it - where Google shows a larger Top Stories with a big Full Coverage button that takes you into Google News.

Here is a screen shot of the button:

At Google I/O they said this full coverage would show story timelines, podcasts, and so much more - plus the UI is different. You can see those screen shots over here. I did ask Google what is new here and hope to hear back today.

Here are more screen shots from Glenn:

After I click through, I do get "top coverage," "videos," and "twitter" results for this topic:

Google News Stories

Google News Video

Google News Twitter

This may lead to a lot more traffic to some Google News sources and maybe to more videos and tweets. Or it may lead to less traffic if you were doing well - it just seems like Google is driving more diversity into these results - unrelated to that diversity update from the other week.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
