At its Google I/O developer conference last week, Google debuted a revamped Google News app focusing on balanced news delivery with personalized news suggestions, and as of today, the new Google News app is available for download on the iPhone and iPad.

According to Google, the News app is designed to use "the best of artificial intelligence to find "the best of human intelligence" by taking advantage of new AI techniques to organize a constant flow of new information into digestible storylines.

A "For You" section offers up personalized news suggestions based on user interests, which is designed to learn user preferences through continued usage. It displays five personalized stories with a mix of important headlines and local news.

A "Headlines" section offers the top headlines in the world, and an accompanying "Full Coverage" feature is meant to provide details on all of the different ways a particular story has been presented by a variety of news sources, aggregating the headlines from multiple publications.


Through the "Newsstand" tab, you can discover various news websites as well as more than 1,000 magazines, and you can subscribe to paid news sites like The Washington Post and The New York Times using a Google Play account if so desired.

Google News for iOS replaces the existing Google Play Newsstand app, which has been overhauled with a new name and a new design with the launch of Google News. Full release notes for the update are below:

Google Play Newsstand is now Google News!

Funny I can get Google News on my iPhone but not the News app from Apple. Also No HomePod, no TV app and no Siri Support on Apple TV, no Apple Pay... Maybe I should rethink my relationship with Apple. The world isn’t the US, UK and Australia only...

Is it me or are the ads rampant all throughout the google news app ?

I like Apple news because it really keeps the advertisements down to a minimum. Google news has them all over the place making for a distracting experience.
