The “News” tab keeps you up to date on a wide range of current affairs, while the “My Feeds” tab brings you articles customised to your personal interests. We’ve partnered with the world’s most popular publications so there’s always new, quality content to engage you.

-The “My Feeds” tab is where we bring you a personalised array of content based on your favourite topics.

CUSTOMISABLE 
Customising your “My Feeds” tab is simple. Just choose topics from the list or use our popular “Keyword Register” to enter the names of things like your favourite celebrities, companies, brands and where you live––we’ll give you all the latest news on them, in chronological order. 

KNOW NOW

-Tips for Use- 
■ How to Read News from Your Own Country ■
By default, the region setting of your "News" tab is taken from the language and region settings of your device. For example, if your device’s language is set to “English (United States),” then news from the U.S. will be displayed. If you are unable to read news from the region you are staying in, you can use the method below to change the region setting.
* Please note this resets the app to its initial state, deleting all feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
1. Choose "Menu">"Setting">"Other options">"Initialization"
* This will delete feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
2. Restart News Suite
3. Select the link for "Terms of service" from the starting screen
4. Choose the region you stay in under "Select your language/region"
■ Setting Up Push Notifications ■
Users can receive periodic updates via push notifications with "Scheduled News," as well as push notifications for important news articles with "Additional feeds and other info of interest"
You can turn notifications on or off, and set timings, by selecting "Settings," followed by "Notifications," from the upper right menu.
■ For Xperia Users Wishing to Uninstall the App ■
If you wish to uninstall the app from your Xperia device, you may or may not be able to do so depending on your device's model. In such cases, you can go to "Settings," followed by "Apps," and then select "Disable."

Reviews From google play store

After the Oct 7 update this app is now less crashy and less laggy. All this while using this app has been a frustrating experience but I had no choice since I rely on it to get news from Japan. Good thing that it gets better now. I guess Sony has figured out how to make the app more efficient. Hopefully it will continue to improve from here on.


Very convenient to get the recent and the trending news in minutes in many different feilds, I think adding the stock market category would be a terrific addition.. So far this is my favorite source for news,thanks again to Sony for the time and effort..


Gives me all the national papers and international ones. So I don't miss the stories of the day,with reminders when the headlines change and a new story is up.


I do like this app but from my Xperia z ultra it show in wrong region. On my Xperia x it show correct region. Can you fix this. Or any trouble shot should i do. For your information i already tried to change region but it still show US region. And when i try to change region in news. It only shows several country.


A very convenient way to read aggregated news, current affairs, entertainment and sport articles and stories from differing news sources. Almost as if curated for me personally. I use it every day, can add news sources I want and is one of my most uses apps daily.


If you only read the Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard, Canary, or any other news source with the same political leaning, then this is the app for you. If you'd rather not live in a bubble, and prefer a more balanced assortment of news sources, then go elsewhere. There's no way to easily edit preferences (that I know of), hence the 1 star.


I use this app on a regular basis. I think it is very good. My only complaint is that I cannot really add URLs of websites I choose. The app theoretically only suppirts this but I have never managed to make it work.


always an "EXHILARATING" read for me ~ every time ~ or otherwise just downright "INFORMATIVE" !


Too many ads and 'sponsored content' (aka ads). Otherwise, okay for general news bulletins.


News feed is great, however, there are other sexual ads which are inappropriate and not welcomed. Not sure if they are linked with this news feed. If, so, it is recommended that they be removed.


Great informative current and easy to use. Keeps me up to date with the important things I'm interested in in life.


Updates are great, news before you hear it on the TV news or radio


Pl continue. It updates instantly at a glance.


After updating rece, the app keeps crashing, can't even open a news to read


Errors out saying it cannot use current version of Android. Says to update. I have Q on a Pixel 3a. Devs are hilarious.


Ey this is awesome, I mostly use it for Anime news. But it pretty much works for any type of news. (2 thumbs up)


Convenient and versatile. News from many countries and relevant.


Never thought I would ever give up conventional print newspapers until I started using News Suite.


Easy to use and a great overview of what is going on in the world


How can I put on the main widget (4x2) my own feed not the main news?.. How can I delete the topics and the rss which I don't want to have (not to unselected, Delete!)?


Super easy to use. Just insert keyword and it shows any news about the subject.


Fantastic news app, gives me all the updates I need in one place!


I love this app and use it all the time for news updates all over the world.


Since I've updated this app it keeps crashing and stopping and closes on its own can you please fix the issue


I need to admit it, I love this app. Once you adapt it to your specific likes, it's amazing.


This app gives more detail than other news outlets


Easily accessible up to the minute news and current affairs. Keep up the good service.


It's so amazing so stay updated on daily basis it's all thanks to News suite by Sony


I wish i was able to read all of the articles posted without having to sign up for a subscription


I like it ,it gives me a lot of customize news ,but you have to support more countries


It is really good to have although I do wish I didn't keep going mental with notifications.


easier to customise than Google news though interface can improve


Always updating varieties of news.


I loves this space because the stories are always up to date and very relevant...


Lean packaged enjoyable access to news.


Organized and easy to use.


I think it is good to view bulletin news 📰 topics


Enjoy reading news on this app, is pretty convenient.


Informative but don't like to click "read more"


Too much of The Mirror, most of their stories are rubbish!


Easy to keep in touch with news


This app was installed along with updates onto my Xperia 10 Plus. It started to send me notifications that I didn't want and ignored, and unfortunately hadn't had time to disable in the settings. Just now, the app sent me a notification which spoiled the newest episode of Game of Thrones only a few hours after it aired. I was about to watch it. This is unforgivable.


THE NEWS SUITE ARE VERY UPDATED, MEET MY EXPECTATIONS AND VERY ENTERTAINING AS WELL. YES, I LIKE TO USE IT VERY OFTEN.


I keep up to days news. Awesome app 👍


It is a pretty good app for reading articles of news that are currently moving the world, is good because we find national and international news, and any of the topics that we preffer which we can select as a preferred content.


This app is extremely annoying and stupidly made. Every a while it just decides to update or I don't know, maybe crash. And this haopens every time that I am reading an article. So just in the middle of reading it suddenly closes the article to show me new ones.


Far too many ads its getting to the point were the app doesn't work properly and you have to search for your news which is buried deep beneath the ads and fake malware invested adverts that are at the bottom of every news story. Also The UI is extremely outdate it's got to the point were sony no longer care about its users and instead force you to use half baked malware infected fake ads news reader that doesn't even give the news you ask for.


I like using this app to read about the news during breakfast. It's nice that they feature more than one outlet so you can get better perspectives if the same idea, but it sorta repeats news and we dont get a lot of new ones everyday. Still, great app to use to read news


I am annoyed becaise you have no way of stopping notifications coming througj. Particularly annoying if you don't use this app. I like the layout and news on the Daily Mail better.


I really like the app but the fact that it is now intefering with the alarm on my phone is really annoying and has meant that I've had to get rid of it . Please change this .


Great to have news from multiple sources


Very useful, the content is constantly updating, but sometimes the app itself crash from time to time.


Of late, whenever I click on a story from The Independent I reach a page that says that it is offline and cannot access the content. EDIT: problem solved: it now finally seems to work. Thank you for working on this, Sony.


keeps me up to date with local and world news as it happens


Updated my phone yesterday as Sony told me there was a new update available, since then all my news feeds apart from a few say they are offline!? Even updated the news app, and still the same problem! Is this the Sony phone update, or the news app at fault?


Has gotten much worse again, cant even read an article /story now without advert movies and pop ups on EVERY SINGLE story, even on Mobile data, instant uninstall... Avoid


Always click on a link I want to see, then it'll take me to another nd I can never find the original


ive used many news apps, like Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, Flip, and some others. I love this one hands down. thats y i keep it more than a year now.


I really love this app! I'm keeping informed of things I need to know


Organized in a way that makes me to love reading news


Useless and impossible to uninstall. Just as the "What's New". And too many annoying notifications from both.


Great way to see the news. Not all news outlets linked to the articles can be accessed. Like "Independent". I'm guessing it has something to do with number of times it was accessed for free.


It's getting improved much but please do away with the ads advertisement it's really annoying and disturbing that's why thankfully I'm using the "Duck Duck Go" apps to browse for safety purposes especially to get rid off the ads..☺️


keeps crashing and saying I'm offline. uninstall and reinstall and it'll work for a few hours with the same thing happening. uninstalling for good now.


I find this a great app to keep current.


Good top stories. I read these daily.


Please stop using the Alarm API, this create an alarm notification and it is very annoying and become tricky in how to turn it off. The only way to get rid of it is set the widget's update interval to "Don't update".


Wide and informative.


Not all news feeds are real news, more like celebrity news which I have no interest in


great news application with simple UI. All the news are at one place.


News suite is easy to use ,giving the right news at the right time ,thank you news suite for the incredible experience ,hope everyone is using it ,5 out of 5 from me


I like it but most news articles are left wing biased! Not cool. So if you can get past the bs, great app


All at one place. Concise, informative and fast news


Very helpful tool in summing up news, but could do with more local content. i'm from Malaysia.


Good for a variety of news stories . Less duplication of stories would be an improvement


It is a nice app that does not spam with notifications. Most news stories are true and revelent for me.


Great app, find it very useful


Great App. Keeps me up to date on things i follow and then some...


Great as it has all sorts of news categories


very useful app, information on world cup upto date score details requested


Very detailed report on a variety of subjects of concern


Good content. Regular updates provided.


I enjoy this app every morning and during the day once i have the time to read the news...


This is a racist app,all languages in europe are added the exeption is Portuguese ,you can change the region to spanish,german,france etc...however portuguese is not available,if you change to portuguese language it will allow portuguese brazilien news..but Portuguese (portugal) it does not allow..this is really ignorant and useless app ..not friendly towards Portuguese language..it does not allow to add rss feeds from portugal ..therefore racist app ignorant and no one should buy Sony xperia..


Really good, i like it , because I can look news, really important


It's an amazing app, very much convenient!


The only bad thing that one can truly say about this app, is how addictive it becomes in one's daily routine.


All in one news app.... All newspaper articles we can get here,,, impressive


Easy to use and a good wuick way to get the latest news


Nice App to get news on the go. Good layout too.


Good and latest news available always.


Great neww feed app. Customizable and functional.


All news around the world in a single app that keeps me updated. Thanks for the team to make this done.


This comes very handy when it comes to sports update.


Informative around the globe news and info


Good news articles tailored to my interests.


There should be full screen mode at news browser


Wasnt sure at first i would like it, but its actually pretty nice app to get your news from.


Awesome news app. Work on adding verification source label 🔖 .
