Needs more headlines & actual interests


Under each news category, it seems Google only shows the top headlines for that particular day. It needs the ability to list all previous news posts, for yesterday, a week ago and a year ago.
Also, the personalisation of the news is terrible. The interests section only works rarely and it needs to offer a complete and personalised news service. For instance if people do not want to read or know about crime related topics, it should give you that option. This is not an independent news app, this is Google?

It’s ok


It’s fairly good and stable. It doesn’t give you too much content but gives your all the important news. I just find it very stupid that you need to allow location services to run in the background to get local news? Why is this? I set it so it uses location services only whilst I’m accessing the app but it doesn’t allow me to see local news until I enable location services to run in the background.

Other than that, fairly decent app.

Great app


As always, the new Google news and weather app is reliable, accurate and very accessible. Keep doing good - love your work folks
