  • Best news aggregator

    By Andrewborg
    One of the best news aggregators out there.

    It doesn't work anymore, it just opens the regular websites, which defeats the entire point...
  • Halfway into articles, pages are blank!

    By iPhonePhive
    Google has a problem that's been going on for years. Halfway through a news article, the pages are all blank. I'm sick off it. Google is lazy and won't fix it.
  • Battery usage through the roof!

    By Alex Brown 73
    I've been using my iphone for 5 years, and it never got so hot from battery usage as it does when I use the Google News app. I've been reading a new York post article with a video and my phone got super hot.
  • If it actually worked

    By Steve60971
    Buggy and unstable it crashes at least twice before I can finish reading a story. Then if I want to finish the story I have to back out, start over, scroll to where it puked and hope I can finish before the next cutesy ice cream cone reminds me the app is a piece of crap. Ultimately deleted it because the annoyance factor outweighed the content.
  • There was an error displaying this content

    By MarqR
    This is a great app with respect to content, features and functionality. (Although the Apple News app is really much nicer and more reliable.) However, it frequently blows up in the midst of reading an article with an “There was an error displaying this content”. And, it has been this way for years. Additionally, much of the content is distractingly cluttered with ads.
  • Privacy?

    By Blasphemous
    Nothing beats talking to someone in real life for 30 seconds about a topic and NEVER searching or mentioning it online yet Google News has a story pop up for exactly what you were discussing. I hate conspiracy theorists but if you think for one minute that our devices aren’t listening to us and sending catered content then you’re delusional. Google News also steals data from Firefox and other browsers. I haven’t used Google Chrome in years and yet things I searched for using Firefox routinely show up on Google News.
  • Hide doesn’t work, see less does not work

    By kalicayo
    I’d love if someone could explain why *hiding* a source does not work. “See less” also doesn’t work. I’ve used and loved this app for years. This bug slash feature seems to be baked in. I have clicked “hide all articles from example.example” every single time it shows up in my feed, and yet the next time I open the app, there’s several links to stories from them. Again. Still. If the function is useless, why is it included. I assure you, I have ZERO desire to see links from those I try to hide. Honestly, I’m at the point of deleting this app.
  • Meh

    By Artyelle
    Trying to find support for Google News is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. There’s no way to increase the font nor does it allow for dynamic font. I’m legally blind and trying to read small print is terrible… I’d hop Google was better at rhis
  • Has gotten worse

    By singatakalook
    Shows you whatever news is popular. There is an option to like or dislike certain articles and it used to work, but recently it stopped showing me the profile of news that I had built over months and only started showing me popular American news.
