Google is Partnering with WordPress to Develop a News Publishing Platform
Google is partnering with WordPress to develop a low cost system specifically designed for publishing local news.

Google News Initiative has partnered with Web development companies, Automattic and WordPress.com - home to 30 percent of the world's websites - and have invested $1.2 million (roughly Rs. 8.5 crores) in its effort to create "Newspack".

Newspack is a fast, secure, low-cost publishing system tailor-made to the needs of small newsrooms, Google said in a statement on Monday.

The new publishing tool will be made available to publishers globally later in the year.

Publishers on Newspack will have access to all plugins created by the WordPress developer community.

Google News in November launched a new innovation challenge to help scribes and publishers in the Asia-Pacific region produce quality journalism in the digital age.

According to Google, in Asia-Pacific, journalists and publishers are increasingly grappling with questions over how quality journalism can thrive in the digital age.
