BBC News Widgets and Alerts
This page explains how to add the BBC News iGoogle gadget to keep you in touch with all the latest news as it happens.
Add BBC News to your iGoogle page
Example of BBC widget on iGoogle
The iGoogle 'BBC News - Official UK Edition' widget is the first one that has been created for, and by, BBC News.
The BBC is the default News provider on the iGoogle UK portal and the BBC News widget will be pre-installed on any newly created UK account.
To add the widget to a new or existing account simply click on the button below and follow the on-screen instructions.
iGoogle and similar applications allow you to set up your own homepage with feeds of content from sites you like best.
Currently, the BBC News widget is optimised for iGoogle and therefore you will need an iGoogle account for it to work properly.
Please note that the BBC is not endorsing iGoogle in anyway and other similar platforms are available.
We hope to make the BBC News widget more widely available in the near future, technology and resources allowing.
