Does very little 1/5
Until it allows me to customize news sources it's pretty useless.
One-sided news 2/5
No better than the mainstream media...Left, Left, Left.
Where are the reviews? 3/5
Can't seems to find the reviews
At a glance, I can see what's happening. I like that the weather is also presented, and that my local news isn't buried deep down in the app. Good job, Google!
Please allow me to CHOOSE my news sources. 3/5
I don't get it. The desktop version allows me to customize my news sources by logging in. But you don't get this option at all in the mobile app. The only feature you get is the ability to add sections.
It's 2017. We all know mainstream news is biased. Google may not be picking the stories, but at this moment, Google IS picking the sources and sorting stories based on some type of algorithm that puts "certain" sources above others. And that still equals bias.
Best news aggregator 5/5
I have used this app for the longest time and love the access to unbiased, ad-free news. The weather info at the top of the page is convenient too.
Includes fake news like Breitbart 1/5
My Google news this morning included an item from Breitbart. This is unacceptable. Why can't this app allow some control over sources? I NEVER want to see Breitbart, Daily Caller, Washington Times, etc.
Google spreading national enquirer fake news is scary and dangerous
REMOVAL FROM APPLE WATCH 1/5
Google decided to remove the app from the Apple Watch. Bad move subtracting good features. Give love to the Apple Watch and my review will change.
Pure garbage 1/5
By Stv Bob
This platform for any National Enquirer news. Pure garbage.
A JOKE! 1/5
"APPLE WATCH NO LONGER SUPPORTED IN THE LATEST RELEASE"....... wow, what a great update!
Great news app 5/5
Better than the native news app on iOS because it has local news and weather.
Not newS 1/5
This only reports the most liberal opinions & no other. Sad excuse for news.. if it had both sides fine but it has just one side. Not news.
Google News 4/5
By Brady Wynne
I like the News
Good app beats Apple news 4/5
By Carlos 2015
I get local,national,international, and
Specific areas of interest news.
I use it daily. It also feeds off of my searches to harvest news related. Great job
Rife with pretenders 1/5
Google news still does not offer users a way to filter out certain sources from news results. I for one would like to block results from sites that are clearly not credible outside their realm of expertise, or that are subscription only, or don't play nice with my browser.
Decent tool for aggregating news.
Excellent start 4/5
Every app needs development in its own way. This one is the first I've used that combines your local media and national sources for their respective stories. It's the first one I open in the AM. Great idea!
Maybe I'm old fashion. 5/5
I like this app. Well organized and it's ease to the eye when you browse over the headlines. Maybe a little upgrade on the background colors and font size.
Go-To News Source 5/5
This app is consistently the first place I go to get updated with what is happening around the world. I especially appreciate that I have choices from the full range of political spectrum.
Lack of control of aggregation sources 1/5
Always nice to have a news aggregator and I don't mind it adding random new sources with an interesting story from time to time. But I've gotten tried of having this app add fake news to my news feed. Why do I want Russia Today (RT) and random non-journalistic media outlets in my miss? Further insult to injury is I can stop it. There are no controls.
F****** tired of seeing Trump face on my news feed 1/5
Usefull App 5/5
By User XXL
Very usefull aplication, just what I need.
incredibly glitchy 1/5
This app is just awful. Not what I would expect from a Google product. Sharing from the app often fails. Opening news articles in a browser maintains the Google news URL in the URL bar so then you need to request a desktop site just to copy the actual URL. After reading an article, Google news ALWAYS returns you to the top of the entire list of articles, making it difficult to find your place again because you have to scroll, scroll, scroll. It often fails to loan upon opening, crashes frequently... Google, you did this one ALL WRONG.
Interface feels old. Shows latest news though.
By Missouri Tigercat
Very good, not so good if you set up for local news in a small rural town. News that isn't in your area, and/or same news item every f'n day, overall, set up for an interest, you'll get it, repeatedly.
Staying with this news app 4/5
Get the latest news in a clean, clear format. The best part is no pop up ads and disgusting ad pictures that stare me in the face while trying to read.
Works every time.
Gave 4 because there's always room for improvement but I have nothing to suggest at this time.
Keeps stories far too long 2/5
By Scot k.
I've found local stories kept posted and headlined for many days. Who needs stale news!
Best option out there for me.
Decent news app 4/5
By S2cem ama
Fast news service with decent customizability
Right on! 5/5
This app is great, with local as well as world news. Weather too!
Great Source For News 5/5
I use it all of the time and find it to be very comprehensive and easy to use.
Great app 4/5
Great news clipping service but don't see the weather anywhere. The name is news and weather.
Great App 5/5
Easy to use and straight forward, included with a great local news.
Web Link version works well 1/5
Why the need for an App? At least provide an option "no, and don't ask again."
Still same opinion a year later, prefer the web version. Removing log on from the news page ??
Occasional dead links 4/5
Otherwise it's great.
Tired of paid links 2/5
I am tired of clicking on a news story only to be able to read two sentences unless we pay for a subscription. Please only post links that we can read otherwise it is just as easy to read the news elsewhere like Bing.
If you like popups for being todays luck winner, this is the app for you! 1/5
Tried to read one news article. Got there DIFFERENT popups telling me I was todays lucky winner on some scam site. Then, after having to reload the article the fourth time, Google refused to allow me to read the article until I took a survey...
Here's my survey results: deleted app.
Disappointing at best 1/5
By Dan H_
Not ready for prime time, tried this app for two weeks. Continually gave me the same stories over and over.
Great news generator 5/5
I love it. I've used it for four years now and it still gives me a great diverse headline news feed.
Gone from Great to Awful 2/5
By CD Wyte
Such great potential; such a mess! Linked news doesn't open, is covered with ads, or is blocked by subscription requirements. Other news links go to news sprinkled into a minefield of inescapable, trick ads. After another update, it still locks up, takes me repeatedly to a story that won't open no matter which other story I select. This leader in its field can do far better. So, I keep fighting my way through the app and hoping for better.
Magnífica aplicación de Google Noticias 5/5
Esta aplicación de Google Noticias, me permite estar al día sobre los acontecimientos mas importantes en el mundo. Es importante configurar la cuenta de Google Noticias para que le muestren a uno los temas que mas nos interesan. Miguel Leopoldo Alvarado
Glade there is finally an app for Google news
Nice BUT... 4/5
Great in terms of content but needs a UI update.
Good enough 3/5
By Space Ranger Bill
A decent enough app. The changes they keep making don't seem aimed at the user so much as some other end having to do with their business model. Whatever that is. I would like to see a more robust ability to seek alternative versions of the stories the app pushes to the forefront and get a more well-rounded sampling of news slants on headline stories. Really tired of having no choice but clearly right wing skews from Fox and nutcase blogs, then going outside the app to hunt down other versions of the story. A little less app jazz a bit more content vetting would be good.
It is hard to get the app to deliver the kind of international news I'm looking for. I wish I could figure out how to get the app to be less localized and to deliver news in multiple languages. Disappointing at best!
Expected Better 2/5
For all of Google's capabilities, this app should be both exquisite to the eye, and seem less in its execution. Most disappointing on both counts.
It's okay 4/5
It does not show the entire news
It's OK, not great 1/5
About 20% of the time when I load a news article, I just get a blank page. Quite annoying since that is an article I would like to have read.
