Google AMP killed google news.
Chrispatsox on 6/26/2017
Google accelerated mobile pages, drove me right back too flipboard's horrible UI. I can deal with bad UI more than I can deal with an internet search engine attempting too wall off the internet, keeping everyone tethered too google. Accelerated mobile pages are NOT FASTER! Before AMP. I click a google news story and wow I'm actually on the website providing said news article. Cutting edge thinking. Now with AMP I'm on some bastardized version of that website. If I have 2 identical automobiles, and I strip one down to nothing but tires engine and some doors no dashboard no radio and no seats I guarantee that car will be faster, but I also guarantee it will not be worth driving. Now that Google has added the grey task bar too actually link to the real website, that increases time and data used. I click an AMP google news story, but I want the real website, not the bastardized stripped down version, so I click the grey task bar effectively loading the page again, doubling the time and increasing data used. How is this better?
Waste of time: Requires multiple extra clicks

Waste of time: Requires multiple extra clicks
Good general news experience
The unicorn warden on 6/25/2017
I much prefer the app over the browser experience.
Free sources highly biased to liberal content, headlines
Gafloyd on 6/24/2017
I have been reading this app news for many months for free. It is great to keep up on general headlines especially if the sources are balanced (1 part Fox News/ 1 part CNN). Fox leans conservative, CNN leans liberal, in my view. Unfortunately, too many times there is no balance (1 part Huff post; 1 part Washington Post; 1 part CNN ) : all three lean to the left.
To many adds, broken links, adds disguised as news
Sangibar on 6/24/2017
It is almost impossible to view the news with so many adds! And links to adds disguised as news. Links to blank pages or content that needs a subscription... not a good user experience.
Great app.
Aualdrich on 6/24/2017
Love the app!
Review This...

Great collection of news
Senorfuzion on 6/24/2017
The local news curate accurately, and the headlights are spot on
Google News
Mgivoni on 6/24/2017
I've been reading Google News for over 25 yrs. it's layout has changed from time to time, though each time better. It's always up to date
Great news app
Daryl1955 on 6/22/2017
I like the many different news feed the app bings. Has all the latest news and you can customize what you want to see.
Jacob Dame on 6/22/2017
Better than apples stock news app
Only show Democratic News
Tyason on 6/22/2017
It's really a shame. They only give "democratic view" related news. They were also very big is "shielding" pro trump news during the election. I don't have room for a partisan news app, especially with all the fake news issues we have in this country. Great Job Google for ruining the news. Your doing exactly what you blame trump for doing with allowing news media in press conferences.
Very current compiler from many sources
frnk6 on 6/21/2017
Any one news vendor ... even the best ... sort stories by predictable patterns. The Google news feed tends to be broader and deeper than most. An excellent screening tool when inundated with too many opinion feeds guised as news. No - it's not complete or without flaws. But it finds important events buried by many others.
The news app with the highest potential
DougO94 on 6/21/2017
Very good collection of personalized news. And it gets better the more you use google services at predicting what you are interested in. Given Google has the largest amount of data out there, it had the highest potential to provide us with the most relevant articles. Yet I still find Apple news to have the best UI, as well as a more integrated system for manually selecting topics and sources.
Nice app
Whitie31762 on 6/21/2017
Nice app that works well, as long as you don't mind your news feed skewed to the left.
Decent news app
MassMedic1 on 6/21/2017
Very nice app that provides local, national and international news.
Good and convenient
Babu Sath on 6/20/2017
Love the ease with which I get access to up to date news and simple integration with chrome.
Fake news
ARV_Argonaut on 6/20/2017
Has overwhelming amount of WashPo articles which are more often than not fake news...
It's All Here
Stormer48 on 6/20/2017
Nice app. Most everything you need as far as news goes, is here.
Good app
Shiva135 on 6/20/2017
Good app, but why is news and weather together? Why not two different apps? Very easy to create custom categories, but these these categories never gets updated.
Stories constantly don't load
blahblahblahblahblahblahAgain on 6/19/2017
Too often the stories don't load after click. Constantly have to force quit and reload.
Dismiss stories needed
Napppy Boy on 6/19/2017
Wish I could wipe away stories which don't interest me thereby letting the app find new/more ones.
Quick synopsis
Modfool on 6/19/2017
I like taking a look at headlines and enjoy being able to delve deeper.
It's better in the browser.
MegaMosquito on 6/19/2017
Standard browser navigation is so much better than the awkward interface in the app.
Great app, thanks Google!
googilyfox on 6/17/2017
Google has made this wonderful news feed app better and better.

Great app current and meaningful
Nice mix
Kaddie327 on 6/17/2017
Good mix of news outlets and topics
Pure garbage
Stv Bob on 6/16/2017
A platform for National Enquirer type news. Pure garbage.
user-friendly, loads fast

😄 4 stars
A very useful tool!
KinrossLord on 6/16/2017
This is a good tool for getting a quick look at what's happening in the news. The search tool is helpful, too.
Typical news app
nollofar on 6/16/2017
Too many adverts and pages loading is so inconsistent. For a lot of links you actually lose track of where the story is scrolling down through useless ads and pop ups. But Google doesn't care about that as long as they bombard you with ads

Tildentime on 6/16/2017
Great summary news
Go to news app
JKSoutheast on 6/16/2017
Quickly accessible and mostly accurate. Local news bullets seem to have a problem with updates; they are often far out of date and sometimes NOT of local interest. However, I use the app more for news outside my local area.
I like it
brolarry on 6/15/2017
JoanieTM on 6/15/2017
Gives a good overview & I can then select what stories I want more info
Cherry Picked Liberal News
MachineGunKenny on 6/15/2017
The worst thing about Google news is that it is nothing but cherry picked liberal garbage. The best thing...The fake news stories fail to open!!!
Not Very Relevant to my Interests
OKChrispyKO on 6/15/2017
The stories featured on my feed are not typically very relevant to my interests. Hoping it will improve.
Good news coverage!
JordanSF on 6/14/2017
Have enjoyed getting notifications for the most important daily news.
Great news aggregator.
Jeff-REMAX on 6/14/2017
More in depth than USA Today and other newspaper apps.
Best news app
computer101 on 6/14/2017
Clean, up to date and easy to use.
Great App
Scubageo1946 on 6/14/2017
Gives me everything I need. Like the variety of news sources. Easily find answers to questions, great for research.
Typical News App
I_C_U_R_1_2 on 6/13/2017
I was hoping to have complete control over what was on my feed. The top news feed, that is what you see first, you have no control over. The second feed you can only control the category. Google, the worlds best search engine, you can do better. Disappointed.
IronRobotFilms on 6/12/2017
I find Google News to be a well rounded service covering most of the majors and customizable.
Liberal bias
Shoorfar on 6/12/2017
Used to be fair news and cover a lot of different topics. Now it's mostly politics and one-sided liberal news.
Nice alternative

Get all my news from here.
Better than the trash that comes with iOS but needs work
SamSBD on 6/11/2017
There should be more control over content. For instance, one should be able to turn off entertainment news as well as specific publications and set up interests in a more sophisticated way than whether or not a vague topic appears.
Narrow, Biased, Unreliable
ZelmoRemo on 6/10/2017
This app is well documented. It loads quickly and reliably. Only problem is that the content is focused on notoriously unreliable sources. The content is dishonest and carries a far left slant. Too bad. They almost got it right
drmoha2000 on 6/10/2017
رائع ولا يفوت يوم الا ودخلت عليه وتصفحت الاخبار منه
