On June 22, 2022, On Wednesday, Google officially announce the return of the Google News platform in Spain after 8 years of long shut down. This return is labeled under the global 20th anniversary of Google News.

The “Google News Return in Spain” has been made possible by the recent change in a copyright law that will allow Spanish media outlets to list or make discoverable content accordingly along with their own wanting of monetizing that content. These new law amendments applied to both big and small publishers.

According to Google, Spain’s news consumption fell to the lowest after Google News’s exit from the country in 2014  and this also led to a huge traffic loss into publications traffic sources, which was a great impact on their earnings.
