Became just like every other news app

Google News and Weather was a good app. You could like or dislike topics to customize your feed. It was abandoned in favor of this app that instead allegedly lets you like or dislike sources. The problems are that topics are better than sources for this feature, and feed customization does not even work well in this app. If you dislike a source in one part of the feed it will turn up somewhere else or on the next day. If you dislike all the sources covering an uninteresting topic, a pitiful Twitter post will be left over, and Twitter cannot be blocked in this app. So the nature of this app is revealed as a front end for Twitter trends and related news articles. It is not up to Google standards.

Awesome app but articles closes while switching between apps

I like reading news in the Google news app because of its nice interface. But, When I open and while reading an article, if I switch between apps for a moment and come back, the article that I am reading automatically closes and the home page reloads. So I need to search for that article again and open it and read. THIS IS HAPPENING EACH AND EVERY SINGLE TIME and it's frustrating. I wish this gets fixed soon. Thank you.

The old google news app was way better

Seems like this app throws in too many ads that are disguised as news articles. Mostly about cars. And for some reason there is a daily “news” article about either Snoop Dogg or Dr. Dre. I’m on the search for a better news app.
