    Nahuel Martínez


    I like the interface, it's pretty on brand for Google, neat and clean. I do heavily dislike and am annoyed by the fact that you don't have a setting to always open articles on the browser. You have to open the article on the app and then tap options and switch to the browser. It's just poor design, which is rare for a Google app in my experience

  2. Alyssa Stevenson-avatar

    Alyssa Stevenson


    app It's hard to set the type of news you want. You get a lot of garbage, click-bait headlines and there's no feature to say "I want bias free news sources only". Nope, not here. Instead, you have to go one by one and click "fewer stories like this" or "stop following..." I just want the few unbiased (or less-biased) news sources out there. I shouldn't have to jump through hoops just so Google learns my preferences and I don't want Google to add new things to my feed because I googled something.

    app download I really enjoyed Google news by swiping left on my android from the main screen. But it keeps crashing now and going back to the main screen. I have tried to log out, clear cache....still crashing ! I'd love some help ! Edit : 30/03 : done the process to fix it...would work again...then New update and now it keeps crashing again. Seems to happen when you scroll down too I have to be super slow. Please fix it !!

    apk I have no idea what is happening with this app, i used to love this all for being so responsible and relevant. But since last two updates were released. There is a major change in this app. Lots of repeated stories and lots of app crash is happening. Like in a usage if 20 mins it would crash 2-3 times. Kindly do something about it.

  5. Brian Patterson-avatar

    download This is a sad attempt by google. I get the same stories, the exact same articles day after day. The machine learning seems to think I am interested in new articles from other cities, however I do not get articles from my own city. Every other article seems to be about astronomy, which is cool but seriously not every other article. Ads on this are out of control also. I have a lot of spam articles which require you to tap next to get to the next part of the article. All so they can load more ads.

  6. Z Nino-avatar

    Z Nino


    has stopped Ads now interfere with content. Every article contains at least one paragraph that is missing the beginning. Often I cannot figure out what information or how much is being covered by the ad. Closing the ad does not help, it just leaves a black space over the ad's area, which I will reemphasize is covering part of the content.

    magazines I found Google News most irritating as it shows more and more news feeds whic I don't want to see. I am fed up "Forcefully" seeing news from biased and manipulative news channels like NDTV, The Wire, The Quint. Even after clicking on "Not interested" ,I am regularly getting news feeds from above nonsense. It seems there is no other option to getting away of NDTV,The Wire,The quint's nonsense, but to avoid Google News completely.

    washington post subscription Updating review again as they managed to make it even worse. Latest update is so bad. No way to turn off social media posts. Paywall articles galore. Product ads in my feed. Telling the app to stop showing posts from specific domains doesn't work. Switching orientation breaks full screen videos. Shows the same news articles reposted from various news sources over and over. Clickbait and blogs get fed in with regurgitated old news. Old bugs go unfixed for years. Use msn news

  9. Peter McLintock-avatar

    Peter McLintock


    logo Like most things Google, it works fine, does all the pretty things Google does, right up until the point where it doesn't. The app kept closing, I even tried to send feedback, but as usual you've gotta jump through hoops to even do that. Typical Google really. The bigger they've got the less reliable their products.

  10. Mary Mathers-avatar

    Mary Mathers


    free download There is no other service I'm aware of that handpicks Worldwide Daily Briefings via a panel of award-winning journalists, geared to my interests, background and locales (think of the personalized advertising you either opt-out of or utilize in your Google Account). I actually click-through on almost every single suggested briefing. Even more important than whether I enjoy the briefings are the FACTS I find myself quoting during everyday conversations - so EXTREMELY TIMELY and pertinent.

  11. James Morasco-avatar

    Latest update broke the app completely. App force closes when clicking on any story headline. Clicking on 'show fewer like this' is useless as well. The same stories pop up (app AND desktop/web version). Cleared cache/ refreshed many times and no change. Uninstalled and reinstalled with no change. Running a Pixel 5, so it's not a hardware issue. Time to find a better app/service.

  12. Mike Claydon-avatar

    Mike Claydon


    Has gone from crashing intermittently, to failing to open a single story without closing down completely, deleting cache has no effect whatsoever, the supposed solution (although why a few hundred Kb of cache should make a difference). Infuriating app has gone from irritatingly bad usability, to utterly useless.

    Been using this news app for ages and never had any problems But since latest couple of updates i cant even use it anymore??? These updates are changing my phone for the worse everytime! Oh and while I'm on subject of changes, since when is it OK for google updates to monitor my calls and ask me for feedback? Calls surely should be private???? Stop with these updates

    Not updating when connected to a VPN. Never had the issue before a recent update. There is no way I'm going to disconnect my VPN just to refresh the articles before turning it back on again. For me the app is useless until fixed. Latest update still hasn't fixed the issue.

    My app is working again. It was an unrelated issue to News - I use this app so often and really all day that I didn't bother to check any other apps before posting my review. This app is the best and brings me everything I need for news. It's really good at finding local news too, I love it!

    "Fewer stories" button doesnt work. Never. 1 year disliking weather stories, still on top fives. Also clicking youtube vids, doesnt take you to youtube. Also showing same stories over and over its stupid. Also showing 1 year old stories is not news. Google apps do some really stupid stuff.

    Hi Dev Team, A feedback has been shared with you just now. Issue: app keeps closing/crashing itself and it is not just after the recent updates but it has been in place for a long time now. I just happened to find some time to share a feedback. Please fix. Regards Arpit

    Keeps crashing. Latest update ruined not only this so but numerous apps I use daily. This can and had upset me tremendously. I eventually had to uninstall the app and reinstall it. Clearing the cache, force stopping the app didn't help.

    The last update broke the widget. I'm getting Mar 25 News reported as 2 hours ago, and I also cannot select from widget the story I want opened to read. Does anyone at Google use this? I would have thought you would noticed this.

    A news application that doesn't send news notifications 😅!! Notifications amount set to highest and everything is on for notification still can't get notification about new news/issues even after selecting sources/location/topics. Only way is to open the app and see the news, no notification at all!!

    Need to have option to increase font size as it's much smaller than normal formating for smartphones. It's better if I can open the original source page because most of the news source sites have their font size properly formatted, but this is not always possible. As such, I typically use other news apps that provide a smartphone format option.

  22. Nick Valerie-avatar

    Nick Valerie


    A recent update has made the widget 5x1 dimension instead of the usual 5x2, so one cannot read or scroll through stories without opening the actual app. The widget is currently not scaled correctly, so the information is literally cut off and cannot be resized when setting it up.

    App is fine when it works but it keeps shutting down in the middle of reading an article. After restarting, lt s difficult to impossible to pick up the news story.

    The app was occasionally crashing before, but now I can't read a whole article before it crashes. Edit: it looks like the problem was related to the Android System WebView issue, that crashed other apps as well. I revised my rating.

  25. Paul Thomas-avatar

    Paul Thomas


    Beautiful article recently comparing headlines and stories comparing Trump and Biden , who both stumble on stairs getting on Air force One. The bias in the US media is deplorable. Biden even falls 3 times. You wonder where all the hate in the US is coming from? Try this example, and things like Dr Seuss is offensive, but Cardio B performs WAP in primetime. Unquestionably, You, and the media and your agenda are the problem.

  26. Naegiri-avatar



    App's crashing any time I try to load in an article. App worked fine yesterday, so I don't know how you managed to break the app. My review will most likely change once this issue gets resolved.

    2019: No news for 2 days (on Galaxy S8). Uninstalled Next day, I reinstall - no more issues :-) 2021 - App keeps crashing - OK after reinstalling. No more issue with mixed languages, by specifying 2 languages in the setting I get a mixture of both in 'my news'.

  28. Chris Edwards-avatar

    Chris Edwards


    The app is supposed to show subjects that I'm interested in reading and then I can choose to hide subjects. That's all a steaming load of filth. This app shoves what ever tripe google what's you to see and completely disregards what you select to see less of. This is a really cowardly practice to say something is tailored to your choices and then deny that when google wants to say something is a top story.

  29. Colin Gordon-avatar

    Press back, for adverts? Recently a few publishers have been able to inject navigation into Google News so pressing back is taking me to adverts. Is this legitimate and happening with Google's knowledge or not? It's getting annoying.

    Most of users alleged of Google news issue but I'm not because I used "Dailyhunt" for many times. But today I see 'Google news" and install it. After When I compare between two news app I found a big mistake by Dailyhunt that The popular news app "Times of India" is not available in Dailyhunt but TOI is available in Google News. Although I found a features of Google News that we can go official news channel and read about article.. Although Google News provide the article faster than Dailyhunt.

    Giving it a 4 because the Google and Google News apps notifications apparently can't coexist, I only receive Google News notifications when I uninstal Google, and when Google is around I get news notifications from Google when I would rather get them from Google News, witch doesn't show any notifications whatsoever when Google is around

    I personally think it's the best newsstand application. Algorithm works fine and predictably, suggesting related articles about topics you're interested and based on the news you've read. It does lack options, though, like blacklisting sources. Magazines section is also quite confusing and not very user-friendly, they should make it more intuitive like the headlines section.

    Been using this app for a little while and it's quite good. A good way of aggregating lots of news sources and staying up to date, wish I'd been using it for much longer. Knocked off a star though because the 'breaking news' alerts are coming several hours after the news has broken and it's too late so I've turned that feature off as it's annoying.

    I am finding this app very helpful! Thank you. A suggestion - we can directly add interests, but can it be based on our selection of articles (that indirectly show what we are interested in of course).. to the extent there's sort of a pattern in these interests that would suggest another interest category of ours (and of course show us more targeted articles, which I assume is already being done) that for whatever reason we didn't directly add, ?the app can suggest this to us, right?

I've already made sure that the notifications are turned on for Google news and even turned it off and on within 24 hrs, but couldn't get through the issue. I'd really appreciate if I get this issue fixed. Other than this, no complaints. Thank you.

    Al Ross


    If you just look at the headlines, it works fine. But if you actually get into a story, the amount of google ads will drive you crazy; it's impossible to read/enjoy anything with all the distractions from all the ads. This app is just another way of google learning everything about you.

    App wont play videos on some news websites(error that it uses to much resources). When i press the back button after reading the article the page will jump from advert to advert before actually returning to the news list meaning 3/4 clicks before going actually going back (Add Fraud?). Also after rotating the phone whilst halfway through reading an article the page refreshes and jumps to the top of the article im reading, meaning im forced to scroll backdown to where i had read up-to.

    Click bait heavy. I'm moving to Flip Board as Google News has devolved into shoveling gossip, race baited articles, and aggressive political news onto my feed. All of this in spite of me turning all this nonsense down every time it's gets put onto the app. I don't know if the algorithm is confused by me disliking everything or what, but I haven't come across any news of actually substance in weeks, despite my best efforts to curate decent sources and actual news through the app.

    My personal favourite news app. I hope Google will add a new feature with lets us dislike the events and things in news. Is add an option to stop auto playing videos.

  88. Axphyl-avatar



    This app is great however when an article has more than one picture, like in a slide, this app is really bad at allowing us to view the photos. If I try to slide to the next picture, it slides me to the next article! You need to create a better system for viewing multiple photos in an article. Honestly I think you guys should just get rid of slide to the next article thing. That alone is extremely annoying!!!

    Draws heavily from skewed sources. It seems like every article I open is pulling either from Fox or CNN, both of which disgust me. I'll stick to my AP News app, thanks.

    I wish I didn't love this app! Especially because it has an algorithm that feeds my bubble. But! They do have an option for me to see across multiple media types for each story so I can read from conservative to liberal etc. And, I am becoming addicted to all of the Dear Abby types of articles which Google seems to point out for me each day. All in all, it's a good app and I appreciate the breadth of news.

    Can't adjust the tiny font that displays. Can't use dark theme. Can't use with @voice for when I am out for a walk. Freakin crashes a lot. How can a Google app crash all the time on Android. Even crashes on my pixel which is worse because that's a Google app on a Google operating system on a Google device and it crashes. I used to like the web based news but Google decided to fix something that wasn't broken.

    I have used this app for years with no issue, good source of all news together as one. However in the past few days it's managed to burn through 4 gbs of data, it's eaten all my mobile data over night (not realising my WiFi had switched off on my phone). I will now need to buy more data, I've had to turn off mobile data on the app as I don't trust it any more, which is a shame as I like reading the news when I'm out.

    This app is a pretty good choice to stay updated with the news, but the problem that I'm currently facing with this app is that it does not shows the news notifications in the background. Whenever I open the Google News application, the app suddenly starts showing at least 3 to 4 notifications in the notification panel, but the same is not the case in the background. Please fix it.

    1. Doesn't arranges followed locations, sources, topics and saved searches automatically (as in flipboard) 2. When i try to save a search, i cannot because of news source suggestion. 3. Irrelevant blogs show when i search for specific blogs.

    I like using the app however, it will keep showing the same story for days on end. And if I read a story about soemthing, it keeps showing me related stories until I tell it to stop. Reading one article on a particular topic doesn't mean I want to see that topic over and over.

    Edit: I've contacted Google several times requesting this, so I am changing my review to 1 start until Google stops making me watch ads with a premium YouTube account. "Please connect our YouTube accounts to Google News. I am logged into my Google account with YouTube red premium, but when I click on YouTube videos while using this app, Google News won't let me watch YouTube with my account. It makes me watch YouTube videos signed out and there is no easy way to open the videos with my account."

    It kinda freaks me out a little as to how relevant to my interests, that the news this service offers, provides to me. I quickly get over that and am enjoying the news. Thanks for all the incredible data tracking, handling and usage. I'm just glad I'm not a criminal :)

    I'm not sure if Google is listening to my conversations or tracking everything happening near my fingertips and across all devices linked to my common networks but I'm thankful the news are quite relevant and best of all, free! Google does a way better job at showing relevant feeds than Facebook. As to privacy, I guess I just have to trust that Google won't abuse it. Huawei seems to be catching up pretty well too. Hopefully neither will put me behind bars for funny speculative reasons. Haha.. 😅

    Keeps crashing since last update. From start First week it was fine, now when I click to read news it ask me to subscribe, OK. But then even though I did it, it then asked me again and again. Turns out it's just linking to Web pages and asking me to pay for each. Very angry. Search news on Google same page but it's all 100% free. So app is scamming money out of people I Don't recommend this app.

    Needs work. Limited variety of sources, some of them extremely questionable like the Epoch Times. It seems to try to push stories it WANTS me to see, often showing me the SAME stories over and over again no matter how much I say "Less like this," though. Like any time Twitter does ANYTHING, it shows me like a dozen stories about it. I don't use Twitter and I don't care. Doesn't seem to really take feedback into account and relies on broken algorithms instead.

    Keeps bringing news that is too old "in case you missed it" and hiding a story is only for that session. Refreshing will bring back the hidden story. There is no category called entertainment that I can mass black out , so useless articles on who is dating who at which restaurant keeps popping up It also gets me local news that isn't local to me Finally refreshing doesnt bring new stories. Just the ones I have already read unless I get the blue refresh button then I get new articles

    From 5*to1*. After many years of thoroughly enjoying the app's previous-generation-layout, I quit using it opting for the mobile website instead, due to problematic UI choices that make it exceptionally cumbersome to use in 3 major use-cases: opening articles in Chrome instead of in the app (not a single step Menu option anymore), exploring customized topics thoroughly (not individually tabbed anymore), being able to use offline after syncing (no such function anymore). Please, fix these issues.

    The Google feed has been my go-to for news relating to my interests for years now and I love how honed in the topics have become over the years. Having access to the feed through the dedicated news app was never really useful as I always had the feed integrated into my device's launcher but having recently started using Dex, I am finding this app to be a great way of getting the feed onto my desktop. It is also a useful way of browsing the Google feed from my Chromebook as well!

  114. BHAVUK SAXENA-avatar



    Although the news itself is very relevant, but whenever I click on a YouTube video embedded in a page inside Google News, I get directed to YouTube desktop instead of being directed to YouTube mobile app. This causes a lot of inconvenience. Would request Google to 1. Fix this issue ASAP 2. Respond that they have got to understand the issue.

    Every time I click "don't show me this", it comes back. It would be nice to have the option to block certain topics. The algorithm frequently gives me topics I don't care about instead of showing me the ones I do care about. And I don't like that it auto-refreshes while I'm scrolling

    This is my first time using Google News. I'm not much of a fan of news, never really have been. Mostly, scan articles they contain for a few minutes and I am done with it. A lot of items I truly do not have interests in. No desire for those particular subjects. I decided I would try Google News, select only my preferences, observe if they catered to ME and check out if they were going to send just what they want. I am extremely satisfied by the articles I received. They listen. Great App ❗❣️❗❣️

    there is no way to get articles to open directly in your browser. you can't open links separately or save them for later. if you are reading and clicking through things, if you tell it to switch to your browser it opens the original article no matter how many clicks deep you are. it has a good selection of articles and sources but the UI is a very incompetent walled garden, which mostly just makes it frustrating and inconvenient to use

  120. Halfey Halphstein-avatar

    Keeps showing months or even years old 'news'. Those aren't 'news' anymore; they're 'olds'. How hard it is to implement a setting "hide news older than N days"? Also the hide news sources never really worked. Sources that are supposedly already hidden often show up again all the time. Even telling the app "not interested in [subject name]" is never honored, which makes me wonder why bother asking when you're still gonna show them anyway?

  121. kremennik-avatar



    The widget and notifications show me news from blocked sources. When I subscribe to a news source, their articles don't show up, despite being picked up by the algorithm (I can look at the source's articles, they just don't show up in my feed). I have a bunch of major news sources blocked, and still, the algorithm would rather feed me articles from the last 3-4 remaining big sources with doubled fervor, instead of bringing up lesser news sites I am subscribed to

    I love this app for news, but now it won't load the articles. I have to open the article in browser because the news app can't load it. King's defeats there purpose of the app if you have to reopen everything in the browser.

    Good app, can read national/international and local newses from the best sources Really appreciate that it's support all type of languages & news also have a doubt,in the app it shows something like the weather of current location but I don't know how that's happened because i didn't give the location permission (If it's based on previous location from Google then it's not bad otherwise not that great.)

    One start deducted because of delay in making news available. Second star because of the apps inability to open embeded links of apps like Twitter, YouTube and other not being to switch from Google news to other app. For example I open a link in Google news if Twitter. It doesn't get opened in Twitter app on clicking the link insted get stuck with error webpage not available. Pls sort this out.

    I have been a happy user of this app for more than 2 years now but in the last couple of months have been struggling with horizontal scroll. It is pretty bad that I have to close the app every time. It happens with most news pages but not on all news pages. This definitely needs a fix.

    Fine news reader with two remarks. Every now and then the app sends me push messages of articles I read 5 minutes ago. Often shows articles I've already read. I would like an option to not see articles I've already read. Also I would like to set a news date filter for articles so I only see articles published in the last two days.

    'Thumbnails' are huge, unnecessarily extra large, waste of screen space. Also, if you want to quietly read the news, Google News is not your friend - cannot block/prevent/exclude YouTube links from the news feed, so noise will happen. Also, no matter what, I keep getting food articles & recipes in my feed. What the heck?! Anyway, this will suffice. None on the competing news apps are great either, I like this one a little more than them.

    Impossible to find to stop the annoying news story when I turn my phone on. Annoying app. I have been trying to locate the icon as described, but have not been able to find an icon with a tab in the top right where I can change the preferences. I am unaware of ever having downloaded the Google news app, but when I open my phone, there is an item on my screen which I have to get rid of before I can use my phone, There is no easy unsubscribe button or equivalent that I can find.

    Otherwise a solid app, it resets you to the top of the article every time it changes screen orientation, so lock it to portrait unless you're watching videos. It also needs to enforce dark mode on all sites, not just the ones that are whatever-ready.

    In the " Technology " news section literally the first 10 news articles have nothing to do with technology. Every single category is dominated by political news. Extremely frustrating for me to have to dog through 10-15 articles to find something decent and non political. And so many Ads! STOP THE ADS after every 2 articles, and after every 5 sentences within the new article. How can I read anything when I see adds about foot cream or scamming casinos every 50 words!

    I love Google News. It is my main source for all news and I look at a multiple times a day. The only suggestion I have is adding a time frame feature for current news. personally I don't like to see news any more than 24-hours old but I receive news stories from 3 to 4 days ago.

    Been using this for years. I still love it. Reliable. Sources will vary and that's fine but it usually leads with NYT, WashPost and others that allow a few articles per month or week and you have to navigate back and choose MORE COVERAGE to see the same articles from free sources. Should have a ROUTERS/AP wire only option.

    Great app, if you're liberal. The app works great, no complaints there. I would give 5 stars if I could find more than one news story that wasn't so obviously biased. Thats the only issue, all the content is super liberal. I say this as an independent who leans left half the time. Same issue with Google Assistant. "To help everyone understand the world by connecting people with high quality news from a variety of perspectives". I guess googled thinks there's only one perspective in the world.

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. Google News used to be a genuinely useful news agregator, but now it's just full of click-bait garbage stories, with little to no real content. (E.g. seven stories in a row about "When will you get your $1400 stimulus check!?!") Stick with Reuters or NPR if you actually want to learn what's going on.

    Despite repeatedly giving a thumbs down to certain topics and having them listed as topics I want to see less of it still puts them at the top of my feed which you also then can't thumbs down in that spot for some odd reason. So many ads it's disgustingly greedy. Edited as now many of the news channels won't let you just exit out without throwing clickbait stories in your face so you have to keep pressing the back button to get out - disgraceful.

  145. Toby-avatar



    This came as bloatware on my phone. I've been experimenting with it for a couple months, trying to get it to show news that I might actually be interested in. I told it 26 times that I wasn't interested in 'Morgan Wallen', 50+ times not interested in 'CNN', 104x not interested in 'kittens'. It doesn't matter, it just shows you what it wants. Useless app... Google, we're getting a divorce and you can keep everything.

    The "see fewer stories like this" option hardly ever actually has listed, what you want to see less of. Seems shady to me.
