If you rely on getting your daily dose of news from your personalized Google News homepage, here are a couple of things you can do to access it from anywhere in the world. In case you're not familiar, personalizing your Google News homepage allows you to create custom sections that contain stories on a specific topic. You can also add standard sections (such as Business or World) from other regional and language editions. It's a great way to get all of the news you want in one place!
The easiest way to manage your personalized News page is by signing in to your Google Account. This will allow you to access your news page from any computer in the same way you would log in to your Gmail account. Signing in also lets you switch across to our other services quickly and easily. For instance, if you’ve just finished checking your messages on Gmail and want to switch to reading the latest news, all you need to do is click on the News tab that is displayed at the top of the page and you’ll be redirected to your personalized Google News page.
The neat thing about Google News is that it lets you personalize your News page even if you decide not to sign in to your Google Account. However, keep in mind that by choosing this option, you’ll only be able to save and view your personalized News page only from the computer you’re using. Therefore, if you’ve personalized your News page on your work computer, you won’t be able to view it using your home computer.
Another limitation of not signing in to your Google Account is that you’ll lose all the settings and changes made to your news page any time you clear your cookies. To prevent this from happening, after you’re done customizing your news page, you can click on the link at the bottom of the homepage that says "Share your personalized News with a friend" and send it to yourself. By saving the URL of this version of Google News in your Inbox, you can access your personalized Google News page from other computers by simply retrieving the email that was sent to you. Just remember to resend this link to yourself anytime you make changes to your news page so that you’ll always have the most up-to-date URL of your personalized Google News homepage.
If you feel this is too much of a hassle, then I recommend you sign in to your Google Account to create your personalized News page. It’s easier, faster and only one click away from Gmail and all other Google products.
