Language and Region Filters for Google Alerts

Google Alerts now lets you pick the language and region when creating an alert. For example, you can create an alert for "Chrome", but restrict it to French news articles from France. You don't have to set the region, the default setting is "any region".


The new filters are great for delivering more precise results, since you can restrict the results to a language, a country or both. You no longer have to use workarounds and switch to a different domain to get alerts in a different language. Please note that the text from the Google Alerts message will be in the language you've picked.
