Your guide to the new AI-powered Google News app

  • Google News on iPhone gets AI power here are all updates

On opening the app, the users will find a "For You" section that has been created to provide the top five news of the moment followed by a tailor-made section that will provide longer news articles. When the app is opened, "For You" brings you a brief look at five stories based on your past reading interests; this is a combination of top headlines, local stories, and topics that Google has detected an interest in on your part. The revamped app will supplant the former app - the Google Play Newsstand.

The default "For You" page in Google News is where you'll likely spend most of your time.

Meanwhile, the "Headlines" feature serves as way to quickly skim through the biggest news of the day.

Each section curates news from around the web and various publications, giving you the option to read or listen to the news source (s) of your choice.

Your briefing - It can be almost impossible to keep up with every story you care about. Selecting a story means the user is greeted with a range of stories, videos and other content as well as a useful timeline of events. With your briefing, easily stay in the know about what's important and relevant to you.


Credible sources - Find quality content from a diverse set of credible publishers and discover sources you haven't heard of before. On the day we used the service, a story about a summit between the United States of America and North Korea sat at the top spot (which felt pretty appropriate), but in second place was a local news story about the least punctual bus stops in West London. "Full Coverage", as you would expect, digs deeper to information events, displaying Tales from a number of resources (even though you can not set preferences for all these), in addition to timelines for ongoing troubles.

Stories, for you - Keep up with what's happening on the topics you care about, whether that's travel, politics, sports, tech, or fashion.

The Google News app also lets you subscribe to online publishers that rely on paywalls and premium subscriptions, and read their content in Google's mobile-friendly AMP format.

Is it different to Apple News? Will it replace Apple News for you? When the app sought to pull together all the various news stories about Mario Tennis Aces, it ended up placing a tangentially related opinion piece front and centre, which felt far less useful than an actual news piece about the topic in question.
