Google & Twitters instant articles could roll out next week

Google logoA couple of weeks ago, it was reported that both Google and Twitter are said to be working together in order to roll out instant articles for the web. If youre wondering what this is, its supposed to be like Facebooks instant articles where the articles have already been preloaded, so users can click it and begin reading right away instead of waiting for the page to load.

That being, when will this alleged feature/service make its way to the masses? According to a new report from Re/code, it seems that these instant articles are expected to be announced next week. This is based on an upcoming invite from Google for an event next Wednesday which is for a new open source initiative for the mobile Web.

If you recall our previous report, it was suggested that Google and Twitters initiative would be more of an open-source initiative, versus creating some kind of app or platform that users can go to if they want instant articles. Instead Google will be pulling cached versions of articles and displaying those to readers.

They are then expected to be released as an open-source tool in which other platforms, such as Twitter, will be able to deploy on their site, thus expanding its reach and availability. Publications like the New York Times and the Guardian are expected to be some of Googles initial partners on this along with Twitter.
