  • Frustrating and Full of Glitches

    By Frogmore Farm FL
    I give Google News App two stars because the layout is workable and the algorithm better selects articles which interest me than does Apple News. But the good news ends there. The app will not launch articles in their related apps (such as NYTimes or Washington Post), nor will it communicate with Apple Keychain. Makes it a PITA to read such articles, so I don't. Instead I close the Google App. Also, on articles from sources which will open, the header won't remain visible allowing user to close the article and return to the main page. These are just examples of the countless frustrations and glitches. if the good elements of both this App and Apple News were combined the result would be a really great news service. As it is the apps are as miserable as the news itself.
  • Would be great if it just showed news

    By OswegoBoy
    I am constantly hiding the dumbest news sources on this app… video game stuff, corporations like Amazon (advertising masquerading as “news”), European sports, Indian electric cars, local yokel news channels and newspapers, etc. After using this for a few years, hiding the bad sources as I go, I STILL see that half of my suggested news stories are junk! Most of the Google apps are great, but wow, Google really blew it with this one (sold out, is more like it). I would recommend using the AP news app instead.
  • Terrible app

    By alexjaye
    This app is horribly written and built. It constantly freezes on iPad and necessitates a full restart. Remove this app and rebuild it with a more competent team.
  • Navigating away from the app and returning causes app to crash

    By SF-pony
    The app crash bug has been SUPER frustrating since it showed up a couple weeks ago. If I navigate to another app or two, upon returning to Google News, it does not preserve where I was previously. Checking iOS Settings shows that GoogleNews.wakeups_resource has crashed. BTW: I’m seeing the same issue with the Google app.
  • Was good…

    By (Nickname is Taken)
    App was good until the last update. When I leave it open in the background, it auto refreshes now when going back to it. I also have “background app refresh” turned off. For me, it’s makes the app unusable. Hope it’s fixed soon or I’ll find another news app.
  • New Algorithm, who this?

    This thing responds to my likes and dislikes. It’s faster and the user interface is great. Thank you Googlez
  • Scrolling lag

    By Sam373526
    There is a lag and stuttering when scrolling through the homepage on iphone 14 pro max
  • Just don't do anything else while using the app.

    By jsac90
    This app is the most memory aggressive I've ever seen. If you switch apps or put your phone to sleep it refreshes the feed even if you're in the middle of an article. Would love for it to remember my place when switch apps to answer a text.
  • Too Many Ads/ App Refresh

    By Lucid_666
    There are so many freaking ads within the articles and on iOS 16 if you leave the app and come back to it via the app drawer it refreshes each and every time. So annoying and so archaic.
  • Can't use the app while connected to VPN

    By Xibalba-DE
    Google is blocking VPN use with this app in violation of privacy laws and terms of service.
