For over 20 years, we’ve been collaborating with publishers and journalists to promote a healthy, independent and diverse news ecosystem. Through our partnerships with news organizations, we’ve heard from publishers here in Cyprus and across Europe who are looking for new channels to connect with people and engage audiences online.

Today we are announcing the launch of Google News Showcase, our curated online news experience and licensing program, in Cyprus. Cyprus Mail, Dias Group, Digital Tree, MC Media, Phileleftheros Media Group, Politis and SPP Media are among the media partners who have signed on to Google News Showcase in Cyprus.

Participating publishers in Cyprus will create News Showcase panels, which provide more ways for readers to engage with the news and direct them to full articles on news publications’ websites. These panels enable publishers to deepen their relationships with readers and give them more direct control of presentation and branding. News Showcase panels from our partners in Cyprus have begun rolling out on Google News and Discover on Android and iOS.
