    Not intuitive compared to the old google news app
  • Huge data usage

    By dj_k
    Beware, this app defaults to using cell data rather than wifi. It used up 50 percent of my monthly cell data allotment in one hour. I then turned off data usage for this app. Btw, this app is no improvement over Apple news app.
  • The older app was better.

    By Sid Shak
    This app is functional and very good, don’t get me wrong. News headlines are easy to follow and lists are made specifically to show what your interests are based upon. Downside - the old app had all that and more. This new app feels like a bunch of pop-up ads in your face where some headlines bigger than other while the old app carried all news headlines equally making it feel like the new app pushes you to read some articles over others. Also there is no dark theme and you are stuck with a bright white background, definitely not as soothing while reading for long periods of time. Three stars because the app is what it is, a news app but loss of two stars because the old app had more customizable options. I just don’t understand how the new app looks like an older version of the older app that is no longer supported. Of it was up to me I’d stick with the old app which I did until today when I wasn’t able to read my favourite news outlet anymore.
  • Cumbersome

    By Thirsty Gator
    Can no longer scan all news quickly - this app is a major step back - pictures too large, not enough information
  • Too hard to scan

    By Luke12354938
    The new app makes is very difficult to quickly scan the headlines. The pictures are too big. Please bring back the old compact version.
  • Not good

    By Cheerful!
    I do not like this new version. I would like the option of using the old version.
  • The new format

    By Been2Baja
    Is very limited. The old format was for people that could read.
  • Works well except for two things

    By Gnarlodious
    Has been slowly improving over the years. I only gave it three stars because of two annoying shortcomings. One, copying text to clipboard is not a enabled throughout the entire app. Two, no option to open a page in a browser. One star deduction for each of these failures.
  • The old Google News format - more concise! - was better.

    By branfam5
    For me, the added visuals and video links don’t help at all. I liked the concise presentation of key stories, with more than one story per screen
