The iGoogle "BBC News" gadget first launched in 2009 - the first one created for and by BBC News. In September 2011, the design and format of the gadget was subtly updated, reflecting a fresher look and more customisation in the "more stories" section.

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. Internationally, users will be presented with headlines most appropriate to their part of the world, in the same way they are on the BBC News website.

To add the widget to a new or existing account simply click on the button below and follow the on-screen instructions.
