After adding the ability to block specific YouTube channels, Google Discover is giving you the ability to express disinterest on multiple topics in one go.
At a high-level, articles shown in Discover are tagged with various keywords, with Google even testing by showing them directly at one point. Previously, opening the “More options” three-dot overflow menu let you mark “not interested” for what was the main topic/person (or mark an entire website as that).
Now, it says “Not interested in a topic,” and tapping lists around four that you can select to “see less of that.” For example, if you see an article about a musician, you might not be interested in that particular artist but still like the genre (e.g., pop music) and music in general.
