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.

Loving the alerts! Beating all my other news apps.


This is now my first alert when something important happens. A great way to stay up to date with world events and break the news to your friends and coworkers!

App doesn’t refresh without WiFi


It’s very frustrating that this app does not refresh without WiFi. Even when I have full network coverage, a message says no internet connection when I try to refresh.

Intrusive Ads


This app is terrible, when you click an article heading more often than not, you get a spam as for a free iPhone. I have yet to find a way to close the ans and go back to the news story, your only option is to close the story to get rid of the ad.
