Liberal bias and opinion news focused 1/5
I try to be neutral, politically, when it comes to parties. When I want news, I want the facts, I want to hear what happened. I have noticed this app shows more and more “opinion” news every day. I don’t want someone to tell me how to think or feel about the news, I want someone to tell me what happened. This app is getting deleted.
Local tab? 4/5
By Lewis Edwards
The Google News website has a local tab, but the app does not. Why?
The new format is terrible! 1/5
The new format as implemented in Chrome on iPad is awful. Lots of big photos jam up the screen and make it harder to find the stories that I want.
Brilliant! Thanks! 5/5

Can’t live without it
Drain your battery 1/5
21m on screen and 8hrs on the background. Drain my battery extremely fast! And does not even provide any caching on stories. Are you collecting my data?!!
Best news app 5/5
Best news app
Location services broken. Asks me to enable, I click it, and nothing happens. Went into location services in settings and Google News is not there.
Headlines lead to advertisement not news 1/5
Where is the news?
Awesome app 5/5
Offers personalized news
I think Google News is good. 5/5
I think Google News is a good one on the Apple App Store. It is useful.
Not learning too well. A little annoying. 4/5
I see similar stories about movies or actors, after telling Google multiple times Il. Or interested in seeing stories like this. I do like the fact that I can read multiple perspectives on the same in news stories.
Improve Google News 5/5
By Coup de Nord
Google News does a good job. It would be better if the stories that have a paywall or a monthly limit were tagged with that information. Otherwise it just wastes our time. The average reader is not going to subscribe to a periodical to read one story.
Use it every day. 5/5
Does exactly what I want for a news reader. Seems to learn my interests over time.
Not so good 1/5
Older version was much better
Not using as much considering deleting app
Google News 5/5
For a particular news story, Google News will show multiple news sources. This is a crucial feature because it allows all sides and biases of a particular story to be seen, rather than just one.
Google News 5/5
By Dusty Nalley
Great unbiased news source
I like this app. 5/5
By Mr. Boat House
Very good and interesting.
El mejor medio 5/5
By patito 888
Me gusta mucho es lo mejor en noticias
Removed ability to customize news I want to see 1/5
I had been using it, but a recent update seems to have removed the ability to mark news stories as topics that I don’t want to see again. Instead I’m stuck with however “important” news editors think a story is.
Hate the format
Me encanta 5/5
By Pescador Del Mar
Encuentro toda la información más actual de lo que está pasando en todo el mundo
I have deleted multiple apps due to the fact that anything, remotely close to republican, conservative news channels are not shown. It’s not fair it’s frankly depressing that people who run apps like this do balance correctly. The whole point of the media and journalism is to bring the truth to the table and let the people choose what to believe. Instead it’s so heavy in one direction it paints a picture that only one viewpoint is worthy of your time and only one viewpoint is correct. I am an army vet and a conservative, however I read all news and compare, It is very difficult to do so when I can’t even find fox in the newsstand section, Hell I didn’t see one middle ground channel in the newsstand section. So yet again I have to delete this app and find someone with some balls to run a balanced channel. Thank you.
By just send it who cares
The older version was much better. This format is nice but can be more fun and interesting
Disable AutoPlay doesn’t work 2/5
Disabling autoplay doesn’t work. As soon as I scroll down to new content, new video starts automatically. This annoying!
Auto plays videos, even after "Autoplay Videos" is disabled.
Kept crashing. Deleted it.
Use this on Android and Love It. Hate certain visual aspects on IOS. 3/5
By Kentucky wildcat fan!!!
Google please fix the widget view on IOS, not sure about iPads but on Iphone (specifically iPhone 7 Plus) the fonts don't match the system and are way too small. Killing my OCD. Want all my widgets to match visually. As far as the app itself, extremely personalizable. As is the norm with Google and anything Android related. Just never up to par with Apple visually.
What happened?! 1/5
By Ya hear
You used to be able to keep certain thing off your feed like bad news and politics. Now it doesn’t matter how many time I click “see less of this” or hide a news source it always finds its way back on my feed. Before it was only the things I cared about. Now the news on Trump and people dying in fires shows up and I’m powerless to keep that stuff from showing up.
The loading time is just horrible 2/5
I like this app. Really, I do. When I first downloaded it, it did a very good job of suggesting relevant articles and I felt very glad that I finally found the perfect news app for me, but when I finally tried viewing one of them, it wouldn’t even load till some time later. I tried with many articles, on a phone with the latest OS and on multiple network connections.
Still prefer the old App by far 3/5
I’ve tried to use for a few months and have started using Apple news and Smart News more regularly. Two relatively simple thing would greatly improve the experience.
1) provide the option to view/peruse in a list form without graphics. At least provide an option to reduce the size or amount of graphics to allow for more actual news/info on a single screen view.
2) Bring back A dark mode option!!!
If these two things happened I would ONLY use google news like I used to.
Not so great 2/5
By Rick Van Pumpernickel
I used to really like this app, but now it is a frustrating mess. Stories used to be grouped by topic and interests, but now they are all jumbled together. I keep getting the same articles and stories in my feed even though I give them a thumbs down to see less of of them - they just appear again. I’m not interested in Cardi B, jeopardy, or The Bachelor, but every day I have another story in my feed about them. Very annoying. I won’t use this app again until this is addressed.
2019 - The Year Of Un-tracking 1/5
I uninstalled this app after it served up an ad referring to a house I recently purchased in another town. I won’t be moving for a few months but the ad-tracking in this app already triangulated information about me to serve up this ad. What’s even more scary is that I recently reset my device ID on the phone and opted out of targeted advertising. I did the same for my Google account. What’s more, I wasn’t even signed in to the app. I was using it as a guest. And it still targeted me based on personal information. 2019 is the year we stop companies tracking our every move whether “anonymous” or not.
Old or new google news 1/5
Old Google news is/was so much easier! Making the “animated” graphics makes it all confusing and does not add any news!
Will the old Google news return?
Stop grabbing one time searches as my news 3/5
Old Google News was better 2/5
The technology to make still photos look moving is cute but they take up too much room and get in the way of scrolling to find what interests me. The “old format” was better.
Not as good as the original 3/5
Google keeps updating their news site, but i liked the old layout with the blue hyperlink headlines better.
I don’t understand the user interface of this app 1/5
I don’t understand use it in her face in this app. That is trying to use it for five minutes I still can’t figure out how to read articles in a normal fashion.
Moving away as a person reads is totally stupid and inneficient. One reason i would leave google news.
Ignore my requested to hide sources 2/5
I say no sports, and I keep seeing sports. I hide sources such as Fanside and yet I see it every day in my feed. Getting old.
dark mode in articles/Video autoplay setting useless 3/5
1. I switched the video autoplay setting to "Disabled" but the videos continue to autoplay.
e.g. from the headlines section I choose a news article from cnn. which generally has a short video clip and it immediately starts to play without hitting the play icon.
2. In an article in order to have the Reader View and dark mode I have to select share and choose open in Safari.
It would be great to have the Reader View inside the app while reading the articles.
Always news I’m looking for. 5/5
No dark mode. No scanning headlines. Just big dumb pictures. 1/5
Not an improvement on any level.
Hate how you try to shove liberal agendas down my throat
My new primary news station 5/5
By Barstoolie Brian
Being able to link my subscriptions and get all of my news in one place, and picking subjects and sources that I like is a big help. Additionally, the option to see the full perspective from multiple sources on top news stories is great for someone who wants to digest a story by removing as much bias as possible.
Excellent app 5/5
By skd skd
I am finding all main news of world in this app. Other apps are least required.
Too Liberal 3/5
Just give us a complete left to right view and allow us to choose the articles.
Does not let me sign in to Financial Times 3/5
I have a financial times subscription but it is not allowing me to sign into the financial times to verify it. Because of this I have to use the financial times app and that somewhat negates the usefulness of a news aggregation application.
So ridiculously biased. 1/5
