    First thing in the morning my go-to app for news is Flipboard because of the comment section.

  • Nearly Perfect Collage of News Sources

    By Lanukip
    A collection of news sources to get news and different views of the news and opinions. It would be nearly perfect if they could separate the free vs paid editions
  • Bad Design, Biased Sources

    By Vletsal
    Sources and articles were always horribly biased but the old design was much more sleek with better features. It allowed you to hide the bulky, distracting images attached to headlines and use dark mode. If I continue to use Google News at all, it will be on the old app.
  • Power to the Reader

    By JemLaw5558
    Love how you can cast votes in favor of or against specific stories, and also how you can hide all stories from specific publishers. This gives readers the power to influence the subject matter, quality, and reliability of the stories they choose to read.
  • White background hurts eyes

    By Abhjeet singh
    Please make black background so that it doesn’t strain eyes. And I can read longer. Thank you
  • Update on 8/17/2018 is messed up

    By theMJMiller
    The updates query for the “for you” is incorrect, gives you the same 10 or so news stories over and over. This happened with the update on 8/17/2018.
  • The new videos killed Google news

    By Dbrouss
    The addition of videos could be a good idea if it was optional. I rarely want video news, but I cannot disable it, it does not honor the setting to disable auto-play, and the is no setting to Auto-mute. I really liked the old app, but i need to remove this one. Too bad.
  • Too many useless pictures; not as many headlines

    By Boothill resident
    I don’t see anything that can be considered to be an improvement in this version. Lots of useless images making it hard to do a rapid scan of headlines to see what might if interest to look into further. Far less useful than the previous version.
  • Not updating

    By Neoatriedes
    So for some reason the top 5 news articles are not updating. The newest one I have is 6 days old. It says 4 days ago. But it’s been like that for the past couple of days. Hey Alphabet. Fix this problem. Thanks
