Google News has just started to embed the Wikipedia links in its news. By doing this Google news readers will be capable to access the important information details regarding the facts, just by clicking on integrated Wikipedia links. Before this Youtube also has integration with Wikipedia.
Google’s spokesperson said on this issue that “currently, we re showing a small number of users links to Wikipedia topic pages that serve as a reference on current events.”
Wikipedia articles are contributed and edited by different readers, and now its a huge knowledge resource with a lot of material. That’s why Wikipedia is popular knowledge base among all age groups of users. So, this is a good step by Google News to integrate with Wikipedia which is also an evidence of Wikipedia platform reliance.
