  • Prefer the older version

    By Dillawer
    A series news seeker does need all those pictures and videos to visit a news report. A concise paragraph and a picture hint is enough for me to learn if I like to open the report and read that piece of news. A clear note to tell me if a report requires subscription before I open it will help also.
  • Still too left leaning

    By Bobkenken
    I wish the folks at Google would just put in true news stories in the news feed rather than opinion pieces masquerading as news stories. Honestly, I don’t think their just-a-few-years-out-college editors know there’s a difference between the two. And why so many pieces from irrelevant little blog websites that only serve to bash Trump? It only reveals a bias on Googles part that no one doubts is there and lessens this apps credibility.

    G news is my only source of daily news. Why. Because it is always available, it is complete, and I save money. Thanks for a great job.
  • Best multi-source news application available

    Only request: Please make notifications more customizable to individual sources and I'd use this app over others in a heartbeat!
  • Average, could be better

    By Derek Fang
    The app is now my main source of daily news. The UI and loading time still have room for improvements
  • Much scattering of non-consequential articles

  • No push notifications

    By Nir Kalsi
    Hi, although I marked the latency of notifications as “high”, I don’t get any to my device.

    Two words “Simply Awesome!”
  • Serves out-of-date news and clickbait

    By /\/\/\ ALP /\/\/\
    I encounter articles that I read a year ago served again with a recent date. Many articles are also clickbait with no or misleading content. Google snatches articles from shady news sources without verifying them in any way.
  • Limited selection of news outlets and topics

    By Dojowing
    Google used to have a better world news selection. They no longer even have a world news tab. Most stories are US-centric and about Donald Trump or other US politics. Challenging to dig through and find any quality articles. Gone down hill over time...
