As part of 2.x.096, we are pushing out two changes which we hope are going to make feedly a lot smarter.
Change #1: Integration with Google Reader Magic
Google reader announced today support for Magic. As part of this release, we are combine magic with the feedly recommendation and boosting as the result the quality of the recommendations which are shown in the cover, in the digest and in each category sections.
Change #2: Feedly now knows what time it is.
We continue to push the limits on the recommendation engine. It now knows what time of the day it is and have different filtering behavior depending on the time slot.
In the mornings – 6:00am to 2:00pm – the filtering logic will boost articles which have been published in the last few hours, giving you better access to what is fresh, what is happening right now.
In the evenings – 6:00pm to 6:00am – the filtering logic will instead try to determine what was important in the last 24 hours which you have not year read and try to surface those pieces of information.
In week ends, the filtering logic adapts again and tries to show you what were the best articles published in the last 7 days which you have not had the chance to read yes.
In all cases, the quality of the filtering is enhanced thanks to the integration with Google Reader magic.
Here is an example of the morning filter applied to one of the sections of my digest:
Special thanks to the Google Reader Team for continuously pushing out awesome features and building the foundation for an amazing information network.
