  • WAY better than Apple News

    By Mblauman
    I have owned an iPhone as long as I’ve had a smart phone. I decided to try the Pixel 2 for a little bit and I like bits and pieces of it. One thing I loved was Google News. Loved it some much that I brought it over to my iPhone. It’s easy to customize my news with ANYTHING I’d like to keep track of. Displays nice. No complaints from me!
  • Best news app out there!

  • Still not optimized for iPhone X (March 2018)

    By Pau1ey
    Why is it taking this long for a company as large and with the resources as Google?
  • iPhone X support please.

    By Jimmisama
    Please. 5 star if supported
  • Where is iPhone X support????

    By iWant iphone X support
    It’s been half a year and this app still doesn’t support the iPhone X, did google forget this app exists? I legitimately would use this daily as a source of news if they could get their stuff together and update it. Very disappointing.
  • iPhone X support

    By CasiFeynman
    Dear Google, Please, update this app so it can have support for the notched iPhone X. I really like this app, but I am not using it until you fix that. I wouldn’t like at all to permanently move to Apple News. Thanks, CasiFeynman.
