The updated 9NEWS app gives you access to all the latest breaking news from a trusted team of journalists, with custom alerts so you never miss anything. 9NEWS has been covering Australia and the world for more than 60 years so you know it's a source you can rely on.

You can swipe through all the news and videos in our completely re-designed app experience and subscribe to a variety of alerts, including Sport, Politics, World, Finance, Weather, Entertainment and Technology.

The app uses geo-targeting to alert you to 'News Near Me'. This feature sends an alert for breaking news within a few kilometres of your current location – just allow access to your location when prompted. This can be especially useful for alerts about traffic delays or accidents, fires, floods, and police operations.

We understand that too many alerts can be intrusive, so our team will only send ones we think you will find truly interesting. Our alerts are sent without an audible tone so you won't be disturbed at the wrong time.

The 9NEWS app also allows you to set your location by city or postcode so you see extra stories from your state and weather forecasts for exactly where you live.

If you feel you're getting too many alerts, or too few, you can easily change your subscriptions within the app on the Settings screen.

A must have!


This app just keeps getting better and better!
Thank you channel 9. This is the best way for people on the move to be able to really know what going on. Trying to search for news in my area on the internet is pointless. This app has everything you need to keep up to date!
You can even read the article while watching the video - so smart!

Great App


Terrific app with up to date info, however your weather section is inaccurate. The forecast and temperature section is totally wrong with variances of temperatures by 10deg. I don’t see the need for the weather section when there are more accurate apps available. If you want that section make sure the data your source is correct. Other than that a fantastic app with up to date news.

Ok, needs proofreading.

My bou

I like the “handiness” of the app. It keeps me informed since I don’t get much time to listen to radio or watch tv. Just quite disappointed in the quality of the reports a lot. A lot of poor grammar and spelling errors. I also noticed that sometimes it will have “1 hr ago” on a story however there is no further information than there was 12 hrs prior. Will be looking into other channels apps. Sorry.
