Get rid of the news 1/5
I got this app to read eversions of some subscribed magazines. That’s it. I have other and better sources fir news, and I don’t want Google trying to push their idea of what news I want to read to me. With this app, it’s all but impossible to even _find_ the magazines to which I subscribed. Junk.
Simply bad 1/5
If the review accepts negative rating, I would have given it. This is simply an bloated and badly “redesigned” or “improved” app.
Google News doing much better job 5/5
I used old version previously.
This new one does more complete job, grabs greatocal news coverage and has more please tell interface.
Thank you Google.
A news junkie’s dream! 5/5
This is actually better than great...Just sayin!
I give up 1/5
G News Has been slow and crummy for a long time. I just tried to give it another go but their forced log into your Google account makes it a complete pain in the butt and it’s just not worth it
Super Frustrating 2/5
The latest major version took away a ton of customization capabilities. Why isn’t there a way to sort news results for customized topics chronologically? I used to use Google News hourly, now it’s like once a week. I don’t want the biggest news hit when I look at topics—I want the NEWS

Why do we have to sign in when it’s free to use on the internet. Should be able to use & view without having to sign in to an account.
В России невозможно пописаться на новости интересующих меня ресурсов - только фильтрованные, только ватные. Все равно, что смотреть программу Время!
Basically the ultimate RSS app 5/5
By Wing Suit Zero
Google News is the perfect app to aggregate all your preferred news topics and outlets into one place. It’s very similar to Apples News app but I prefer Googles much more.
Best news source 5/5
By no dumb blond
I recently got the Google News app and really enjoy it. I get notices when there is something urgent to know about and they gather their news from a good variety of sources.
Too much Fox News 1/5
It seems like every other news item is coming from Fox News. How objective is that supposed to be?
Feed AI Needs Improvement 3/5
Why am I still seeing useless celebrity gossip in my feed? I thumbs down every article about Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande getting hitched but EVERY DAY there it is; some trash news about their new matching tattoos. What the heck Google AI? Will have to switch back to Apple news for the time being.
Almost impossible to use 2/5
By Al Havemann
Google news used to be a staple, since then they appeared to have fired all of there app designers and coders. Things happen on the screen without it being touched. It scrolls up, down, videos open with the sound turned all the way up. Try to read something on the screen and the whole window behaves like a frenetic child. Don’t know what happened but the app is no longer functional so I deleted it. I’ll come back in six months to check it and see if it’s worth trying again, right now it’s intolerable.
Worse than it was before. Let us block topics. 1/5
I do not want any Trump news in my primary feed. The Google search app allows me to block topics. The previous version of Google News also allowed me to block topics. I already get enough Trump news from everywhere else. I do not want Trump news in my custom feed. Despite downvoting every single article about Trump, this new app continues to indundate my feed with him. Please. Please. Re-enable the ability to block topics as the inverse to favoriting topics. Please. If you do not I will likely delete this app and never return.
By far the most crashes on IPhone X !
Had to uninstall. I can’t believe it that google can’t do better than that
Dark mode will make a 5-star app! 4/5
Almost perfect! Needs an option/toggle for a dark mode for night reading! That’s it! Thank you!
Great, but bring back dark theme 4/5
This is a great app and does as advertised. I enjoy the new features. However, I deducted a star for the fact that it does not have a dark theme like the old app, which was one of the best feats of the old app imo.
Great app but freezes entire iPhone X every day 2/5
I use this app a lot because it is one of the best news aggregators out there. But it freezes few times a day. The worst part is that it doesn’t only freeze the app itself but the entire phone for 40s at a time ... usually happens when bringing the app up after it has been in the background for some time. Once it gets into this state, it also hangs iOS if you try to kill it.
They Broke Google News 1/5
This was a great aggregator for a news junkie like me. And they killed it with this new release. I could scroll headlines & sources, click through to what I wanted. It is ruined now. Just big colorful photos/videos, gobs of scrolling and can’t really see all the sources any more. You ruined it. 😩. Give us an option to go back to the old format. Otherwise I’m dumping you for some other aggregator.
Bad update 1/5
I hate the new style. The newer app is hard to navigate.
Can’t save searched topics 3/5
You can search for various topics, and Star them, but they don’t save to the Favorite Topic list.
Untrustworthy sources 1/5
By Adys H
Shows links to fakenews portal with Russian propaganda, "sputnik news" in Czech republic. Even I hit "see less & don't show news from this source" I still see their BS.
Nice app finally! 4/5
Newsstand was always a decent app very smooth and could find any and every publisher imagined m. This update is great more iPhone X friendly m. It needs way more smoother scrolling and how dare it show me an article that I can’t read unless subscribed to (New York times). Other than those issues it definitely needs AMP pages and just the overall google experience m. Great app though I like the new design. Dark mode too ASAP please!
By far the best news app in the marketplace today!
No good on iPad 2/5
Can't enlarge text for articles, no reader mode, why can’t you add pitch and zoom.
Wonderful product ! 5/5
By dr gu
I like google ,it give me amazing !
Unable to login 1/5
Every time I try to log in to my New York Times account it says server error.
Too busy 3/5
It would nice nice to have the options to turn off the enormous images. It’s a real scroll fest to find content now.
News news 5/5
It’s been awesome
Not doing what they claim! 2/5
By In apps we trust?
Many news sources are questionable. The app presents the option to hide these news sources, but even though the option is selected, the same questionable news keeps coming! Google can’t be trusted to do what they say!
Overly Image Driven and Thin 1/5
Underpopulated for an aggregator and biased (toward my own perspective generally). Difficult to navigate and bloated with too many shiny things. This is not how we should be consuming the news.
It wasn’t broke in the first place.
Currant and Balanced 5/5
By J of PA
First thing I read in the morning.
How annoying 1/5
I really dislike this newsfeed. Even though you select specific new sources and topics, it constantly sneaks new whack o news feeds whom I never heard of. Then I delete those, and then they feed you another set of news services that I don't want. You have no way of controlling this. Is this yet another set of Russian,Chinese, or Korean hacked news services? Please run away from this service...
News feeds are not free 1/5
By CHIEF HK
I do not like it when you click on an article and it says you have no more free looks. Do not put it on your news feed if there is going to be a charge for it.
Took what was good and broke it 1/5
By Project Gutenberg
The old app was simple, straightforward, direct, and low energy. The new app is as busy as a room full of mesquites. The glitz is so distracting that it hides the news I am trying to find in a room of flashing lights and police sirens. And it drains my battery.
constantly having to block 1/5
i’m constantly having to block the same websites &’fewer stories like this’ seems to do absolutely nothing. considering deleting entirely sticking with apple news
By Big Al 987123
Either fix this or I want my old Google News access back!
Really hate the new layout... 1/5
Please bring the old layout back for the mobile web option. The only reason why I use the app now is because the mobile web ui became unusable - so much empty space and non-intuitive layout...
Ok but Frustrating 3/5
So many of the articles are from publications requiring subscriptions. You waste your time cos you are interested but can't follow.
Where's don't show me this news button? 1/5
By Piano Cea
To much news and I can't turn them off. If I'm not interesting with an article or news I want to be able to turn it off from particular website and never see it again. Unfortunately I couldn't find that option.
Deleted the app.
Dark mode 2/5
By Josh (Yee) H.
Please make a dark mode! The all white screen is horrible for nighttime news!!!
Not as good as the old version 1/5
By Mr. IT
The headline banners are too large and take up too much real estate forcing more finger swipes to scroll through the headlines. Less intuitive to find local news articles.
Excellent collection 5/5
What distinguish this app from others it gathers all the news from all news sites across the internet so you don't have to go to multiple sites to check
You have the topic and multiple sources
The new news is horrid 1/5
Google news has been my go to for years. The new version is unusable all photos and the same stories for days on end. Guess it’s time to find a new source.
Stop bugging me 1/5
The functionality of the app is actually fine. I am frustrated by being asked repeatedly to “rate” it or be reminded later. If I am going to be pestered by an app, this is the result. Maybe I will be spare from further prodding?
Dark mode? 1/5
Where is it? It was in the previous app
By Hazim Brown
Very easy to use interface, and great to be kept informed with the latest and greatest breaking headlines.
Forced me to review 1/5
Every single day I’m asked to rate this app here it is 1 Star. Happy? I know these reviews don’t matter anyway cuz the whole system is fake. 1 Star. Thanks
Headlines, not pics 2/5
Updated my news feed and now it is all pics. I want my headlines back. Too much scrolling to get to anything I want.
Old news all better 2/5
Old version was better. I want to see headlines quickly, not one at a time with giant pics.
