Reviews From google play store

Great app for news from a different view points. They also have a channel on YouTube, but quite often YouTube removes their videos, so installing this app is a must for uncensored news.

Good app but it wants access to your location and cache some data. Cache some data seems suspicious to me 🤔

App keeps restarting and I have to search for the page I was reading again. Please provide option to disable Ask Panda. Thanks.

The CGTN app is a good source of diversified information at one platform. A bug that impede from continuous work is annoying for the users. It automatically stops and restarts to give disturbing experience in reading and viewing the content. Better if this bug is fixed in the near future.

Hi it will be nice if the live TV can continue to play when the screen is turned off.

Has a lot more balanced and unbiased analytics than ABC or CNN for sure

The stories are good but changes too slow so not timely is the biggest weakness.

Great app this is, but playing is often momentarily disrupted. Good

Can't connect in Taiwan :(

The video will stop abruptly.

It won't run at all on my Pixel 3a.

Unbiased news channel, unlike Fox News which is completely fake.

Great news source for better understanding of world from Chinese perspective. Really recommended.

Very good and present and past information is available here.Thanks

App can be pretty slow to load.

Useless app.every time they want our data to access

Video and written reports seem to be good. However when come to graphic and still photo, which are difficult to read because zoom-in function is not available for adroit phone.

It's good on my android phones and tablets but I can't get it viewed correctly on android TV boxes (Mi Box S) so that my family could watch together. The picture is horizontally. Please fix it, thanks!

Latest version does seem to have a longer delay after you click onto a topic. However, the scope and up to the minute reporting on this app is top class. B.B.C.? - can learn from this.

Very timely and informative

Apps does not update latest news and development at all. Since installation for past weeks, there were no changes to the news.. Same news as at date of installation... Hopless

Download, install in mobile but cannot open

Very good app for giving us info you can't get with Western Media. Would be so much better with Chromecast support so I can watch it on my TV.

Love to read the articles the way it is written. All these years I've been reading english news articles from western or indian sources but what i liked most is the chinese flavour in the english haha every country has it's own but to me it is new for instance I read about an article about a popular banyan tree n how it is attracting tourist n bringing wealth to the locals. Now in writing a news article other countries usually avoid the "bringing wealth to locals" part but i like the chinese way.And another thing is the way of address a person as "the man/lady surnamed...." this i like too.Hope though this cgtn i will get to know more about the country.

This is a text based app which does not contain videos with voice narrations, quite disappointed. I watched CGTN for about 2 months when I was in China and found it impressive, hope this app will be improved soon.

Content load too slow. Even takes 3 to 10 minutes just to view single news. Very iritating.

Slow to load, media autoplays videos despite turning this off in the settings.

The UI is good easy to navigate the app, however it would be better if there are background themes introduced to change the app background as per user convenience in further updates.

regretable the news update is not quick enough. synchronization with CGTN TV should be simultaneously, such as Breaking News, etc

Never seen an app ask for so many permissions. The hell with China and their spying tricks. Uninstalling. Adding: had trouble uninstalling, it kept stopping.

Very way for quick access to watching and listening of interesting program

too many ads. kill all ads placed by Google.

Excellent objective views offered in modern journalistic professionalism. Well done and highly recommended.

the video can not select resolution,it's not good!

Even before i open the app i gave 5 star because i know the CGTN is authentic and publish quality content...Thank you

Great source of news

Very well designed and good information from other parts of the world.

So far so good. Only used a few minutes. Looks like it covers a lot of interest. Will spend more time to explore.

This app is not working properly I will send the best time for money and subscribe to sister fun time It is a good idea to tell your friend's and more

Well designed, clean interphase. Enjoyable reading.

I have this app. in my Desk Top Comp. US media is far behind this platform.

Why didn't got night mode function?? Please reference NYtime Chinese Edition.

Old news, slow update.

I like how i cant find this app on their facebook for androids and had to use a link from youtube. Shows how much people fear the truth

good app but not working well please do it direct. thanks

I don't hate it.But can you please stop promote on my phone in every second

Good application. Everyone try it.

Yes really great but where do I find the app for the series this channel

informative that carries the latest global news

It is good to hear the other side of the view. Striving for a harmonious global community should be the the main objective of a good media amidst a self-centred and conflicting environment.

How the sound notification can be turned off?

Yes always welcome to my country and my phone always welcome to my life time sir

CGTN is a very wonderful signal covering all kinds of information around the globe.It is only network which have the quality we needed in our working place that picture accurate information with out compromising.China Global Television Network is being produced to show the World without good and basic information as it occurred peace will be hard to be circulated.I love this signal because,it is produced by the good people of God who knew that framing of information increases violent.

New Subscriber. Rating later on as performance.

CGTN is a Chinese Communist Party sponsored news company. They neglect actual problems of China including forced organ harvesting, uhyger concentration camps and this app lacks concise "real news"

Am happy to share news with my friends through it

Great, I was able to UNinstall
