Google is testing the News Carousel in the US English SERPs on mobile which will only contain AMP pages, although all other news below it are going to be AMP and ordinary news pages.

The Google News headlines carousel will contain only AMP articles, but news stories below it are currently a mix of AMP articles — marked with a lightning bolt — and non-AMP (“regular” pages), ranked by Google’s usual “many, many, many different signals,” Maricia Scott, engineering director of Google News, told me. The carousel is available for U.S. English outlets at the moment, but will be coming to other countries and domains in the next few months. Users can swipe through the carousel to move from one AMP story to the next. Google News Headline Carousel To Now Only Contain AMP Articles [niemanlab.org]
