Meredith partners with Google for the launch of AMP Stories
AMP Stories provides a mobile-focused format for delivering news and information as visually rich, tap-through stories. People is the first Meredith brand to work on developing the format for the developer preview at the AMP conference in Amsterdam.
“AMP Stories have extraordinary potential to enhance how we create mobile content. Our team can easily create beautiful, media-rich stories that our users can now access quickly across the web,” said Doug Parker, vice president of digital design at Meredith. “We continue to be focused on creating the best content for every platform, and the creative possibilities on AMP Stories are endless.”
“AMP stories provide a mobile-first experience for storytelling that digital news publishers can publish on their own sites and can easily distribute across the open web,” said Rudy Galfi, product manager for AMP at Google. “Meredith’s collaboration has played an important role in building a flexible format that taps into the creative DNA of journalists and empowers newsrooms with new approaches for engaging their readers.”
Meredith is a member of FIPP.
