Google News for Negative User Reviews

Increasingly unusableLinks to articles that require subscription but then doesn’t share state with Chrome to allow easy logins, and for some reason doesn’t integrate well with password managers. Also links to articles that pop inescapable subscription prompts, which end up requiring killing the app. I used to use this app all the time and loved it, but would not recommend to anyone now..Version: 5.88

Better content than Apple news, but......the interface could do with some work, particularly when it comes to scrolling / swiping, I am regularly frustrated when the app mistakes my scroll for a swipe and moves me onto another article. This is a long running issue, with each release I hope they might solve the sensitivity issue, but they never do. Furthermore I only experience the issue with this app, so pretty confident this isn’t an issue of “technique”. Anyway, good content let down a little by the suboptimal UI execution..Version: 5.26

Cant block poor content anymoreI used to love this app , they just removed the option to block poor news sites, all the rubbish I had blocked over the years is back. Why would anyone want a news app that forced all content on you?.Version: 5.75

A new google app to profile my likes and dislikes?After clicking “fewer stories like this” 20 times on the royal wedding story, only to have them replaced by more royal wedding stories, I start to wonder if this feature is just being used to profile me, rather than actually give me better news offerings. Likewise if I block a newsfeed, I still get stories from them..Version: 5.0.1

It refuses to listen to youIt updates infrequently. The most frustrating being no matter how many times I’ve disliked news about celebrities, I continue seeing them EVERYWHERE. This news app does not get what you need..Version: 5.5

Decent News App but...The range of sources is nice but many stories lead to paywalls and really hinder what stories I read. Also, if I click on a certain kind of story just for the hell of it, the algorithm goes hog wild and pesters me for days or weeks to the point that I’m less inclined to just click around on a whim. Or to click on an article whose bias I do not share but want to read against the grain. Just because I click on something does not mean I support it or detest it either. There are more subtle gradations of choice-making that the feed seems to not pick up on. How could it? I have no idea, that’s Google’s job. Lastly, it would be nice if one could put in a block on certain things - terms, names - that one is not interested in at all like Kim Kardashian. I’m sure she’s nice but I really just don’t care and do not need to be reminded anymore about how much I do not care..Version: 5.18

Doesn’t work well if you don’t like what it dishes upIf you spend some time wiping away the endless sport articles and Royal news, your ‘for you’ page becomes barren and useless, forcing you to the headlines section where your preferences not only don’t matter, they’re actively ignored..Version: 5.1

Google News ndowngradeLooks like the marketing departments attempt to bring a new more modern interface with more images and less content. People want to quickly browse the news and pick content. This app fails- the scrolling is not smooth and there is less articles per page. My mistake was giving it 2 stars, 1 star is all it’s worth..Version: 5.3.1

Want nontargeted newsUnder the world News section it still shows me mostly local news. I don't want an app to show me stories it thinks are targeted for me. I want a need app that just shows all of the stories..Version: 5.43

No way to report issuesI'm leaving this review here because I couldn't find a way to report issues within the app. Every time that I am using the Google News app my iPhone starts overheating, so hot that it can burn my hand! This doesn't happen with any other app that I use, so it's super concerning and makes me worry that it's use is damaging my phone. I also keep having articles crash while reading them, just suddenly saying that it isn't available. This happens frequently enough for me to stop using Google News, and ALWAYS occurs if I attempt to navigate to any other content within the news provider's site. Quite frequently news stories that are HUGE don't show up at all under either recommended nor headlines. For example, on the day of the recent mass shooting at the Kansas City Superbowl celebration parade I had to search for articles about it because NONE were showing up on the app. So it's definitely not a very good source for breaking news..Version: 5.90

Zoom effect on every photo is nauseatingI like google products and overall the news app looks good but I can’t use it because the slow zoom effect (known as the Ken Burns effect) on every background photo is nauseating (ie. it causes motion sickness). Until there is an option to turn off this effect in the app settings I won’t be able to use the app..Version: 5.37

Why no AMP support?I have no issue in the way that the app is designed and how the news is laid out, but what I don’t quite understand is why there is no MP support for news. Isn’t it ironic how Google launches a faster mobile web experience particularly for news sites and doesn’t include it on its own news app? This results in slow loading times for news articles whereas Apple is incredibly fast at loading news in its inbuilt app..Version: 5.2

BooooAt least 1/3 of the articles I try to open results in a blank screen, uninstalling.Version: 5.74

Blank Google page & scrolling problem.Both annoying and the last one requires the app to be restarted. Somebody reported this 9 months ago and still hasn’t been fixed! Using Apple News instead..Version: 5.27

Reach app collecting cookiesSince the last update most of the articles have an annoying pop-up called Reach ( what is that?) asking to accept their terms and that they will collect cookies and personalised information for them and their partners. I scrolled through their list of partners and is Mike long with no name companies even from Germany?? What is going on? Who allowed them to get their close in there? Unfortunately I have to uninstall the app because di can’t read most of the articles without accepting their cookies. Goodby and so long google news.Version: 5.27

It won't even rotateSwivel your iPad and watch as half the app vanishes. Have to kill the app to fix. Stick to Flipboard..Version: 3.0.1

Disappointing appThere are a couple issues I have with the news app. I would like to see my local news instead of provinces that are irrelevant to me. I wish I could tailor the news pages to what happens locally instead of B.C, Alberta or Ontario. There are other provinces besides those ..Version: 5.28

Disappointingly PoorNot the best app, particularly when you want to push the app into the background and attend to something else only to lose whatever you were reading when you return to the app as it decides to refresh everything and go back to home. Not very good at providing articles according to your interests. Poor quality from a company with an allegedly high reputation..Version: 5.15

Too many adsRecommends good articles that I’d like to read but clicking on any of them is a nightmare with huge ads and auto playing videos. Can’t use any longer..Version: 5.74

No longer worth my timeThe new version of this app is an enormous dissappointment. It now serves me huge swaths of visual (and oh great, moving) panels of news that are hardly relevant to me are difficult and sometimes obnoxious to scan. I don’t even understand how to train the algorithm to do a better job, because the only customization I can find when, for instance, I am served sensationalized local news stories picked up by the networks, is to eliminate the entire network as a news source, which is absurd. My old customizations are gone. This has gone from a smart, fast way to absorb a lot of information to a dumb, flashy slog which I continue to open out of habit but am now abandoning. It looks better and more immersive, but contains significantly less substance and value. Also, I hope Google is getting a cut of all the paywalls this app crashes you into now. No idea how this could come from a company that theoretically knows more about my web and news habits, whether I like it or not, than any other..Version: 5.5

Bye bye privacy!Can you believe this feature? Google News spent the last 4 months badgering me to sign in so they can tailor news to me. I don’t want my news chosen for me. I just want a spread of news. Fast forward to today and I notice Google News has automatically signed me in to all 3 of my accounts! And there is NO option to sign out! Why is that even a feature? Why is it literally impossible to just read some news without signing in? Garbage change to an already average method of reading news. Eat it, google..Version: 5.16

Would be great if google used A.II hate sport and I hate celebrities, they are not news. I constantly vote to hide this crap and constantly vote down sport and celebrity crap, some blah blah Hollywood but having a divorce isn’t news, it’s a distraction from real news. My advice to google news is cut the fake and non news from your news service. Maybe setup a separate app for chavs who wish to have their head in the sand on world affairs. I want real news and only real news that matters..Version: 5.10

Need to be able to sort most recent news first!The news app is ok, but cannot seem to find a way to see the news feed with the most recent items shown first, and older news further down. With the recent news on Coronavirus, it has become glaringly obvious that the app needs a way to sort all the articles out so that you can see the most up to date articles first. Otherwise, its ok..Version: 5.20

More Google junkIt’s a product not a tool. Junk to take your time and attention, not anything worth using..Version: 5.22

Slow and buggy, getting worse with every release, on an iPad ProThis used to be a great app, but it's gotten slow and buggy with the last few releases. Getting worse every time, to the point where I can't use it anymore. A shame, because it used to be the way I consumed news..Version: 5.48

Not recommendedProvides news yes but updates approx once every day and a half so only shows 5 news articles at a time. Very limited not very flexible ie generally shows click bait articles does not filter them very well. Disappointing considering it’s from google and their reach with information..Version: 5.27

What happened to the local tabOn the previous version there was a local link that would give me news for smallish city I live in. Please include option on this app. What happens within 25k of my home has far more impact on my life than most of the other stories..Version: 5.4

Recent versions are buggy and crash often.By "crashes often" I mean it displays the ice cream cone frequently. Returning to the feed page and clicking the same article loads fine. Super annoying bugs: click on an article, the the back icon to return to the news feed and the app dumps you 26 -92 articles prior to the one you just read so you have to scroll down past those articles to return to where you were in the news feed. Autoplay videos: the setting to disable Autoplay does not appear to do anything as videos still play. Once I have read an article, I don't need to see it again in the news feed. If I down vote an article that is part of a collection, why do I have to down vote every other article in that collection to make them go away?.Version: 5.51

Too slow... gotta goThe improvements are great. I had deleted the previous version because it was unreliable - some features would just randomly not work. Though the new version doesn’t seem to have that issue... I found myself waiting up to 30 seconds (or more) for an article to come up after I’d clicked on it. This is on a new phone, with the latest OS, often using WiFi at home. I tried with no other apps running - same thing. I’m surprised that no one else seems to mind the lag. Sometimes I only have 2 or 3 minutes to check the news. If I want to review more than 3 articles, It’s likely I’ll spend most of that time just standing there, staring at a processing icon. I don’t know about everyone else’s news reviewing habits, but to me, an app with this much lag time between articles is simply not useful. I’m better served using that time on email and waiting to do my news surfing on a computer. Or just using another app. The Apple news app does not have this problem at all. If the speeds were the same, I’d prefer the Google news app; content and customization features are better. However, as is, I just can’t justify making the switch, as much as I’d like to - can’t afford the downtime. I’ll check it out again in another 6 months or so..Version: 5.0.1

Hard to readSometimes there’s a line between stories, sometimes the photo with the story goes above it, sometimes beside it sometimes below it. Hard to what is linked with what. Sometimes news items are in boxes. Very messy and inconsistent display of news feed..Version: 5.56

Frustrating and Full of GlitchesI 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..Version: 5.67

Who wants 5 versions of the same story?This new format makes you wade through multiple versions of the same news story. In the older format, you could choose to look at expanded coverage if you wanted to. This is just tedious scrolling—and fewer actual stories. Am I missing a way to collapse the coverage to one report for each news story? —with the option to look at other coverage if I chose to do so? I couldn’t see any way to collapse these repetitious listing. It should be up to the user to customize how the articles are presented. I loved the old Google news. This is dumb. One more thing: when I look at the 69,000+ reviews, I see that the average rating is 4.5 stars. Yet, when I scroll through the recent reviews, at least half, maybe more, give it very few stars. Are the 69K reviews including your past versions of Google News which was much better? Something’s wrong here... And one additional note: today I clicked on a story from the WSJ, but was unable to read it because I don’t have a WSJ subscription. It would make sense to tell users “subscription required to read article” before sending them on a wasted digital trip. Or better yet, don’t include links to articles that the general public can’t access. I have to agree with other reviewers that this is a form of click bait that benefits the publishers of the WSJ, not the dupes on Google News whose time is wasted..Version: 5.7

Less US news pleaseI know your company is from the States, but I actually could barely care less about what's happening in your country. About the same amount as Benin. Please give options to have the feed of The US" and by extension all of your country's banal events largely reduced. My preference is to have zero photos of your current or previous asshat national leaders..Version: 5.22

Keeps opening Safari Clicking on ArticlesMy observation: clicking on articles has been opening Safari, I would estimate about 60% plus amount of the time. If I had to estimate has been happening since around the beginning of April. So annoying, Please Fix for the love of God! Otherwise excellent excellent App!!.Version: 5.20.1

Doesn't workI have uninstalled and reloaded it but whenever I open it up it just shuts down straight away..Version: 2.1

Google NewsDownloaded the App many months, deleted it a shoe while later because of excessive ads. Downloaded it again a few days ago hoping that it had improved; still far too many ads sadly. Excessive adds and cookies make it a difficult read. Hopefully google can filter these out as many news outlets apps do..Version: 5.79

Ad filled trashUnbelievable the extent of ads Google is pushing through its apps. I'm removing this app and using the web version (since Safari has adblockers)..Version: 5.65

Rare fail for GoogleGoogle news app is a rare fail for google: uses way too much screen space you have to scroll endlessly. The stories are in random order: here’s a political story, here’s a human interest story, here’s a celebrity gossip story here’s a story about Trump here’s a story about food. Etcetera. Attempting to scroll frequently results in leaving the story altogether. It’s not possible to go back to the story: You have to scroll endlessly to find it again. The for you section has one of the worst story picking algorithms I’ve ever seen: If it feeds me one more celebrity gossip story I’m going to scream. Marking ‘show me fewer stories like this’ seems to have no effect whatsoever. Nor can one search effectively to find the story one just swiped out of while attempting to scroll. GOOGLE: FIX THIS APP! Update in 2023: there are so many pay walls and popovers and dead links on this app that it’s becoming almost not worth using. When I remember how this app used to be It’s really quite astounding how bad it’s become. And yet I still use it every day. I don’t know maybe this year I’ll finally get rid of it..Version: 5.83

Too much Fake News promoted by Google!!So frustrated that despite me entering the news organisations I want news from, that Google still interferes with my choices by selecting all the Lunatic Left Fake News outlets that I don’t want to hear from and have them appear under the title of News For You. When will Google stop censoring and allow good news outlets that ppl want to be in the recommended areas!?.Version: 5.23

Clunky and FrustratingThe content is fine but Google has nothing to do with that other than creepily spying on you and collecting your data to sell to the highest bidder. The app itself is irritating because you could be 20 headlines down, click on a story to read, then, when you back out of the story, the app sends you to the top of the feed again so you have to scroll back through dozens of headlines, some of which have changed or moved, to find your place. The feature of returning to the place you left off is so basic (e.g., in online shopping when you click on a product then return to the search page) that Google’s choice to irritate its users rather than implement a simple fix makes this app clunky and frustrating..Version: 5.39

Could be much betterI have been an avid user of Google news. However there are a few things that would make it much better 1. A personalized list to add articles for future reference. I know there is a read later option, but that’s just one list. Would like the option to make/share lists 2. Many articles are not correctly displayed within the app. Either some elements are not correctly displayed or image players are off. This needs to be improved 3. Ability to turn of dark mode. Since I am an “avid user”, reading on a black background hurts your eyes and I end up opening articles in the browser. Please have an option for background colors for dark mode and option to turn it off..Version: 5.28

Ruining a perfectly good app with “new & improved”Google, are you listening? We all came to love your services for their simplicity and focus. What was wrong with the Google News app which I’ve loved for years? Why are you dumping its simplicity for this over-engineered under-thought product? More and more you are rolling out offerings which feel more like products of Apple or Facebook. If I wanted dumbed-down, bloated apps that make decisions for me I would not be coming to Google for a solution. Why does this app not have a dark or night mode? Why are the articles with their pics so large I can only sew a couple or a few on my phone at a time —how hard would it be to add a menu option for a condensed headlines view? If I needed a Apple news app view, I would use the Apple News app. This is Google Reader all over again —killing off your most-beloved products in leu of something that integrates features your fan base don’t care about while dumping those that do. It would not be hard to add a traditional or classic view to this app for those users who prefer the layout they’ve been using for years with the prior Google News app. I just deleted this app, and I’m not returning to it until you at least provide a sensible, condensed view free of clutter and massive article photos..Version: 5.5

Poor DesignI decided to try the updated Google News on my iPad and I was very disappointed. The design is very poor, too many unnecessary large pictures, tiny fonts and way too many blank space between articles. Not very visually appealing… DELETED..Version: 5.56

Needs lots of improvementsThe simple desktop version of news was wonderful. It was customized based on my personal preference and easy to read the news that mattered to me. Articles were arranged by the my chosen topics as well as common topics such as technology, national, local, sports, etc. The app makes it difficult to find articles on the topics that matter to me. While the old desktop news page would update daily, I find the same news articles suggested for me over several days, even after reading the article. I understand the aesthetic choices for the app, but sometimes we just want things to be simple and easy to find. The desktop was closer to the ease of finding news articles in a newspaper where the app is more scroll and hope I find an article that interests me..Version: 5.0.1

Pay pay payNot a free new site as more and more items have become subscription based. Not as bad as Apple News (which doesn’t seem to want me to review it) but the most interesting items are always channeled pay to view or subscription services. Don’t waste my time..Version: 5.36

Ads, non-news & unwanted auto playUsed to be alright. Now you have to click back about 3 times (through adverts) before you get back to the news feed. Loads of embedded ads including many auto play videos - no idea of their content as they don’t tend to load properly. Presume they are nonsense though. Cannot get the app to learn that I give no Fs about the royal family/celebrities/magazines/social media stuff. Anyway, deleting the app as it is now unusable and certainly does not present you with “news”..Version: 5.27

New updateThis new update is horrible! As someone who used this just for magazines I don’t care about all this other news.Version: 5.0

Two bugs all of a suddenLove this App! Normally. Two bugs have appeared recently and are quite annoying. 1) Randomly when I click on an article it opens up a blank page in a new window. 2) When I open a Toronto Star article I cannot scroll. Please fix these issues. Especially #1. I used this App daily and that bug is getting quite annoying..Version: 5.21

Doesn’t ‘get me’ at allWow... the amount of upkeep and training you have to do for Google’s news algorithm to give you relevant articles is insane! How many sources do I have to turn off before it recognises that I don’t like reading about sports or right-wing journalism? Everybody’s interests are different of course, but Google News just doesn’t seem to have a good measure of mine. I’ve certainly rarely, if ever, searched for the topics it keeps giving me on Google search, so I don’t know where they’re pulling they’re information from. Google is normally really good at knowing its users Since we knowingly give up all privacy to use it! But in this case Apple news gives me far more relevant information and articles..Version: 5.5

Had to delete1. Constant white screen when reading any article 2. Wifi or cell data doesn’t work after white screen until I force close the app.Version: 5.49

Good relevant content, FAR too many adsThe overload of pop up ads makes the overall experience frustrating.Version: 5.62

Thumbs down to new versionBring back the old version..Version: 5.0

Google Sign In NightmareTypical Google. Can’t just have an app that people can use. They have to have a thirst for peoples information and likes/dislikes. Despite finding out how to stop the seriously annoying pop up asking you to sign in every 5 minutes AND turning it off, it still pops up. I even reset my phone thinking that may reset it. That’s it, goodbye greedy Google. It’s a shame as your news app is way better than Apples. But you have to ruin it with your greed. If someone invented a news app with no cookies and no pop ups they would be a billionaire..Version: 5.65

Keeps me up to dateI enjoy the updated items constantly coming through. Only concerns I have are common commercials dressed up to be articles, and the difficulty I have getting the “fewer articles” functionality to kick in. I wonder if some greater - more accurately directed- ability to drive the feed control/filteringmight aid product perception..Version: 5.7

Use to be great. No longer the case for Canadian news.Google now pushes foreign news articles in Canada because they do not want to pay for the news they push..Version: 5.79

What was once great is now terribleBetween the sheer amount of articles I open that require a paid subscription topped up with the fact that the majority of articles I click on refuse to load unless I opt to “open in browser”, this app which I have been using for years has become completely unusable..Version: 5.70

Should be renamed to “Taylor Swift News”I don’t hate taylor swift. I just do not care to get push notifications about her holding hands with someone. For the past 4 months, it seems the only news that I get is about taylor swift and her relationship. I do not care about the relationships of famous people, and I had done all I could to block news sources that were pushing that content to me. I had blocked over 40 sources, and I could not find a way to put a content filter so that I could more generically block any news about taylor swift. After enough time, I realized this app had lost it’s original utility to me as being a feed where I could see international, national, and local news articles in one place. It is now just a taylor swift feed, and I am not interested in that. Please rename the app so users aren’t confused or misled..Version: 5.91

Restrictions on article notifications requiredToday, an article written by HiTech sent a notification stating “Giant asteroid heading towards earth today”. In the article, it states it relates to the NASA planned mission to test against this possible scenario. These clickbait articles are ridiculous and it’s hilarious a news app as big as google can be tricked into sending out these notifications..Version: 5.60

How do they get it so wrong?In my Google ap the blank page has relevant customised news - but only a few articles. So I thought the Google news ap would be a bigger version with more items of the same. It's Not😥. Instead it's a totally US biased and despite attempts to vote for and against items has nothing like the accuracy of the other apbor my other news apps. What's more it's sometimes sticky in responding despite having theatest OS and a newish iPhone. So it's getting removed..Version: 5.2

Could be much better - keeps crashingThis app is just constantly crashing on me. I open news stories and they don’t load, or it says unable to load and the app just crashes. A lot of the time it’s halfway through read a story that it does this. I’m not sure what the algorithm is but it also has a habit of showing me random stories from local newspapers that are the opposite end of the country to me and of a low level topic that I’ve not shown any interest in. Finally, 50-60% of the stories I do want to read end up being on sites that I have to subscribe to or pay to read, which means all I can ever see is the headline! Short story is that if you want a rough idea of what’s going on and some basic headlines then it’s fine, but if you want to read anything more in depth then look elsewhere..Version: 5.47

Switching to and from app causing it to reload everytimeEvery time you switch no another app while reading an article to, lets say answer a text message, and you go back to the app - its reloaded the entire app and the article you where reading disappear. Annoying enough to make me want to remove it.Version: 5.16

Bug hasn’t been fixed for over a month!!Since the beginning of April more than half of the articles I click on launch in the Safari app. Very disappointed that this hasn’t been fixed yet as this has been my news app of choice for two years..Version: 5.22

Clean but...Clean app but pages stay blank (white screen) at times. Opening articles launches safari on for no reason..Version: 5.22

Please fix the bug!Every time I open an article in google news, it will change screen and open a blank page on my chrome, please fix it!.Version: 5.27

Drains batteryWhenever I use Google news my tablet get really hot and the battery drains at an unprecedented rate. What is this app doing?.Version: 5.68

Biased aggregatorDon’t think for a second that just because there’s multiple news outlets in the results, there’s multiple perspectives on a story. Google only ranks highly news that follows Google’s ideology. At times, three out of six news articles on a particular subject are all from the Guardian. That’s hardly a balanced perspective. Even when you start blocking highly ideologically driven news sources like the Guardian, there’s not much left in the results..Version: 5.38

You removed the back gesture?It seems that the back gesture has been removed or is broken in this app. If it’s not fixed soon I will delete the app..Version: 5.87

New version is too graphicalToo much graphics in the app now. It was better with headlines..Version: 5.22

Please bring back the old versionMay 30 Update. After many months I decided to try Google News again. Still the same huge distracting graphics. Still the limited feeds that lean far left. So many other reviewers say the same thing yet the amateurish graphics dominate still. Deleting this again. Not worth my time in this format. I’ll try again with high hopes in six months or so. I want so much to like this app! The new Google News is just plain horrible. The amateurish look is something a high school kid would create, full of big pictures and missing the ability to quickly scroll through headlines to find articles of interest without those glaring pictures distracting you until you just give up. Gone is the ability to use keywords of your choice to create a news tab, you can only choose from their limited lists. Google News now has the look of those webpages that are full of sensational gossip articles rather than raw news. Please bring back the old version..Version: 5.9

Another US Default app! Annoying.Still getting to grips with the highly rated Google News app but already I am annoyed that news feeds are US based by default, like the Apple News app. Why can’t I pick the default country instead of saving searches and topics? Because of this I am already losing patience with this app and will most likely delete it. 4 star average? Must be US feedback..Version: 5.0.1

Can’t block poor quality news sources (GB News)Having blacked GB News twice (and it’s listed twice in blocked content) I’m still getting their content in my feed - now with the block option removed. Are they paying google to promote their content???? Also they take zero notice of bug reports. The app is full of bugs, stories not loading etc (but opening in web browser is ok). This used to be a great app, now it’s going in the trash with Apple News!.Version: 5.71

Miss the old version, but this is what we’ve got!Updated review Nov. 2020: I have been able to customize so my preferred sources are more likely to appear first, but when I click on “Full Coverage”, I still see mostly stories from far-right garbage “news” sites. Guess if you pay them the $$$, your content gets on no matter if it’s totally false. To Google’s credit, they do have more stories from local news sources; that’s important for stories in specific cities and states. So I still give it 3 stars - useful to a point. ____________________________ Original review: I’m disappointed with this new iteration of Google News. It seems more focused on clickbait and less on topics I’m really interested in. And after carefully curating my news feed in the old version, it seems I’m back at square one and have to recreate my preferences. The old version is no longer available-a week or so ago, it deleted all my preferences, though it still showed news, so I reluctantly deleted it. As others have commented, I wish I could select my preferred and NOT preferred sources, but Google hasn’t allowed that for some time. I just ignore the stories from “Faux News”, though I wish there was a “thumbs down” or “show less” option to fine tune my stories. Ah well. Google is less interested in sharing information these days and more in selling ads. I have two main news feed apps and I just scroll both and hope for the best!.Version: 5.26

Bad decision to remove Canadian newsThis all will soon be useless in Canada due to googles decision to remove all Canadian news content..Version: 5.78

Buggy tech and clumsy algorithmReally buggy and slow on iPhone 7. 20% of pages just display blank white page (requiring me to open them in Chrome). Scrolling down gets progressively slower and frustrating. Just seems to be a bit cranky behind the scenes. In terms of the news algorithm, it’s a story of two halves, literally. You broadly get the news you want for about 50 articles, then it goes into “football mode”, filling every other story with football. I hate football and have selected every option I can find to remove the suggestions, so I assume the algorithm is just clumsy and assumes “men like football”. Just crass. I use this in conjunction with Apple News and broadly get what I need..Version: 5.50

No thumbnail pictures in Apple widgetsWhen I add an Apple widget of this app to my iPhone, I used to have thumbnails of news stories behind the headline. Not anymore. I’ve had this problem for more than a year now. It’s the smallest widget that has a problem, the square one, while all the other widgets do have thumbnails but they are so tiny and are placed beside the headline, and the widgets that feature them are too large!!! Please fix this! I haven’t used the app in years after this bug, and it’s a shame. It would be EXTREMELY nice to see a picture of news that are going on around the world, rather than just a black box with a logo and some text. This is not a technical issue, you’ve made it happen before! Figure out the bug and GIVE ME MY WIDGET WITH THUMBNAILS BACK PLEASE. I hardly open the app anymore. It’s virtually invisible on my screen because there’s NO PICTURES!! JUST A BLACK SQUARE WITH SOME TEXTS..Version: 5.82

Random browser pop upLove this app but it has a major bug that’s really annoying. For many of the articles I click, it opens the article but then also spawns an empty browser tab and switches to the browser app. I have to switch back to the news app to read the article and then close the empty browser tab. After reading the news for a while I end up with a whole bunch of google search browser tabs open! Many people are reporting this, when will it be fixed?.Version: 5.26

FixI like a finite scroll of news. However it constantly refreshes and jumps to the top. So I get through 50% and then read an article, go back and it refreshes to the top. Stop auto refreshing please or have a setting. I hate scrolling back to find where I was..Version: 5.63

Not great on iOSI don’t find this app better than the native news app on iOS. The menu bar disappears from the top while scrolling, which I find incredibly annoying. The menu bar cannot be edited so that you only have sections that are relevant to you. Not all articles can be disliked to see less of them. It’s better for providing local news but that’s about it..Version: 5.27

Dislikes are useless and constant errorsWhatever they use for algorithms does not work, which is odd because I thought google perfected those like 20 years ago. But content topics I don’t want to see still show up, specific articles I don’t want to see still hound me within a few hours of specifically asking not to see it. Often picture don’t align to what the article is about “Suzy seen out wearing a new purple skirt” is attached to a picture of Phil wearing a grey suit with no picture of Suzy in sight! A lot of articles “aren’t there”. I see something interesting I want to read, I click it, and it’s like less than 2 sentences from what seems like a good article. I don’t get it… then I go to my browser to try and find the mystery article from the content provider and find nothing. Finally the errors! Oh the errors! They make me crazy! I used to not have the problem but maybe within the last month I would say about 1/4 of the content I try to read quickly changes to say “error displaying content”. So annoying!.Version: 5.29

Missing some key features.My biggest problem is that I am afraid to use the ‘more/less stories like this’ feature. Some stories have so many different topics that it is hard to just say ‘less’ when I don’t know what I am exactly saying ‘less’ to. What if I like some parts of the story, but dislike others? Samsung has a feature when I say I like a story and want more it asks which parts I want more of. Then I can say less and it asks which parts I want less of. It gave me a much more customized news feed. Now I don’t want to say ‘less’ because maybe it talks about a sports team I like, but I don’t want to say ‘more’ because last time I did that I kept getting stories about a team I don’t like because they were mentioned once in the article..Version: 5.2

Buggy App makes it unusableAs many others have pointed out clicking on news stories within the app launches a blank Safari page. I will stop using the app until this is fixed. This has persisted for months with no response from Google..Version: 5.22

Great with an annoying bugI love this app, but for some reason every time I open a story I get redirected to in Safari. This problem is so annoying I might delete the app if it’s not fixed soon..Version: 5.21

Can’t believe i agree with Trudeau but i doPetty google.Version: 5.69

Avoid at All CostsGoogle stands astride our planet like a colossus, raking in billions of dollars per second, tracking each mouse click of every man, woman and child on the internet. So how is it they make an app that’s as lousy as this one is? First off, it’s a battery-killer. Don’t open Google News if you’re not near an electrical outlet or you’ll quickly be out of juice. Once it is open, expect the stories you click on to load very slowly. That’s if they load at all. There’s a one in three chance that the page won’t load and you’ll see that stupid Google ice cream cone that says this app won’t work because it’s lousy. Maybe it’ll wait until you’re halfway through the story when the app freezes, the page locks, and then gives up and decides not to work. You could copy the link and read the story in Chrome but, if you do that and come back to News, the app resets itself. That means that, if you were looking at the “For You” section, all those News stories you were looking at will be gone, so if there was something you’re interested in that you haven’t read yet, you’re out of luck. Those are just the major ways this app is lousy. There’s plenty of small things that it messes up, too. Google should be ashamed that, not only do they put out a stunningly awful app, they’ve done nothing to fix it for years now..Version: 5.84

Getting worse and worseI have used this app since it came out. I have now switched to using a browser instead. Stories don’t load but do on the website. My subscriptions to WSJ, NYT, Atlantic are ignored and I have to enter credentials every time. Even that doesn’t work with NYT because the link for login doesn’t work. Teaser for articles behind paywalls. A lot of paywall blocked content presented - feels like chronic advertising for all the sources I’m not a subscriber to. I chronically get a blank screen and have to back out and select “More like this” and read that news via different source. Often the X to close at top left of screen is inexplicably not there - covered by content. And this app is as slow as molasses. I have never disliked an app more. It used to work but it has degraded to the point of uselessness...Version: 5.70

Really unhappy about stupid news recommendations.I was uninstalled Apple News because its stupid news recommendation which never follow my settings, then I was hope Google News can have better recommendation system since its high rating on App Store. Sure, it was working very good to not shown topic I clicked “see less often”, but now it just as stupid as Apple News, which always shows massive news topic that I already clicked “see less often” multiple time! So, bye bye, Google News, another apple from great to terrible😡.Version: 5.73

Awful and buggyPages not loading, images not loading, and most of the pages that do load are a pain to exit back to the news list (swiping right often doesn’t work now and when pressing the arrow to go back you’re often asked ‘are you sure you want to leave?’) Feels like an app that was designed years ago and just left to crumble.Version: 5.48

Can't login after I update ios9.Can't login after I update ios9..Version: 3.3

FONT TOO SMALL UnreadableIt’s almost unreadable. App doesn’t offer a larger font setting or obey iOS default. Pinch and zoom doesn’t work and if you turn phone to landscape to zoom, it goes janky. Overall an unusable old fashioned app with no regard for basic accessibility PS just bookmark Google News (in Safari) to Home Screen for a MUCH better and more readable experience..Version: 5.34

UghLooking for a good news app and this one feels like 1/4 of all links are only accessible when you pay for the sources subscription to their newspaper! I’m *not* going to pay for 20 different newspapers… just because I want to see what divers found in the lakebed. come on google..Version: 5.63

Poor update for NewsstandIf I minimise the app to say check an email or the internet quickly, when I return mere seconds later I am plonked on the main landing page with all of my progress through an article forgotten. So frustrating!.Version: 5.1

Doesn't take 'no' for an answerApparently it doesn't matter how many times I say that I don't care about a piece of news - Google is going to shove it in my face on the app and send me notifications to rub salt into the wounds. For all of Google's (scarily accurate) abilitiy to predict what I want, it's concerning that it doesn't 'get it' when I say "Hey Google, I don't actually want this" 🤷‍♂️.Version: 5.11

Google adverts with some newsThis ‘app’ has one objective; adverts. View an article and attempt to press back: adverts first as if it’s an innocent bug. View an article through a browser, three clicks after stealing all the data it can. This app is trash, made be trash developers for a trash company constantly in trouble by the eu for breaking the law. Go figure..Version: 5.54

BUG- Articles open in Safari regardless of settingsWhenever I open any article, I am redirected to Safari where a new tab is opened to a new blank Google Search (it doesn’t even open the article). I have to constantly switch back to the Google News app in order to read any article. Very frustrating bug. Within the Google News setting I have selected the default web browser as “Ask every time” and it still just opens a new Safari tab to nothing, regardless of what kind of article I open. The UI and functionality of the app is great but this bug makes using the app pointless if I’m constantly having to navigate back to the app to read what I originally wanted to read..Version: 5.25.1

Was reliable until now. Opens safari blank page for every article selectedNot sure why this _open blank browser window bug persists but it’s still affecting news reading on iPhones. I have switched to Apple news now..Version: 5.22

UselessFull of stuff google thinks I like. It seems to think I like coronation street, Sunderland football club and Everton football club for some reason . Can’t influence what I want to see at all. Feed still full of news from sources I specifically blocked. Fed up of tying to hide these sources. Unless these sources are being prioritised cos they pay google and I can’t get rid of them. Choosing “show fewer news like this” doesn’t make any difference either. And the more I try to hide and filter, the app slows down to a crawl. Unless google lets me see what topics it decided I like and let me change it , this is a pointless exercise on a poorly performing app..Version: 5.0.1

No competition to FlipboardIt’s obviously this app is trying to muscle into Flipboards space. It’s no where near it. Rather crude attempt.Version: 5.2

Needs to fix thisSadly the web version is better because it has “show less stories like this”. The app needs to have that.Version: 5.50

Old newsI liked it at first. It drew on news that interested me. There was a little too much trashy news, gossip, then that is what tend to click on. I am perfect for anything click bait. Chuck something trashy my way and watch me click it! However, this morning it threw me with an article in the For You section. ‘Manchester’s worst night of violence in years’. I am from Manchester but I am currently on holiday in North Wales so I was shocked to see the article. On reading the content I discovered it was from 2008! Why? Evidently the AI needs a tweak. Back to Flipboard which has never let me down..Version: 5.0

Incredibly AnnoyingThis app has three behaviors I find incredibly annoying: 1) While reading your news feed, frequently, after you finish an article, it automatically scrolls you back to the top of your feed. Enjoy re-scrolling through the entire list again to find where you left off. It’s especially annoying when you had already spotted the article you intended to read next. 2) Often, after you finish reading an article and you press the ‘back’ button to return to your feed, you’ll discover that you didn’t really make it back to your feed at all. Instead, you’re at a list of articles from the same source as the last one, but disguised to look similar to your Google feed. You have to press ‘back’ a second time to actually return to your feed. Why does Google permit this deceptive behavior? 3) Some sources limit the number of articles you can read for free. Fair enough. Often, though, it’s a limit over a given period, such as three free articles per month. Google News never seems to honor these time limit resets. With those sources, as soon as you hit your limit once, you either subscribe or you may as well completely remove that source from your feed, because you’re never getting another free one..Version: 5.56

Lots of spammy articlesGenerally I like the app but I find there are too many dubious spammy articles from unreliable sources. You should stick to news articles from trusted news sources..Version: 5.20

Fix new bugClick on article and then before the article loads, safari opens a empty google page outside the app..Version: 5.20

Developers need to navigate in and out some newsTerrible user experience when a newspaper is full of ads and videos. Apple news interface and the content is much more better than this app on iphone. Application freeze mostly when it tries to play ad videos embeddee into news’s page and need to restart. Waste of time..Version: 5.56

Google News App FeedbackYou all need to make sure that you are able to fit in as many news sources from around the world as you could do that in this way, all users who actually use this type of app in general will always be able to see and hear about whatever types of news that they all would ever like to hear about from any parts of the planet in general. Lastly, you all need to make sure that you are able to post up photos, videos as well as any other forms of media in general that would actually be able to explain how all of these types of news sources work, what parts of the planet that they all are ever broadcasted from and so on and so forth. All of these forms of media should always be translated into as many different worldwide foreign languages as possible..Version: 5.31

Purposefully deters you from using a browserGoogle News wants you to view the content inside the app so that you view all the ads. Ads are fine, but many sources provide ads that are incredibly intrusive, destroying the page layout and making reading the article very difficult. For this reason, I use an ad blocker with safari. In order to open a news article in safari you must use the share function, tap open in browser and then tap the browser button to open it fully in safari. That’s 3 clicks to open a page when it should be 1..Version: 5.34

Stopped loading news over WiFiApp has been great over the past several years. All of a sudden it’s stopped working over WiFi. Deleted and reinstalled app, no change. Tested and rebooted home WiFi and Internet, no change. Only app that seems to be playing up.Version: 5.76

A truly unpleasant experience.I have been using this app for a few days now. Despite my repeated attempts to dismiss news stories about Burger King’s new 1$ tacos using the “Show fewer stories like this” option, which I have done more than 20 times, the app continues to present me with article after article about the tacos. The same goes for celebrity gossip stories, sports articles, tech product reviews, and any article that mentions the name “Phillip Schofield.” I would estimate that I have dismissed around 100 to 150 articles about these topics, but they continue to show up more frequently than anything else lose in my feed. Show me well written articles about politics, foreign policy, economics, criminal justice, or anything of actual substance from a genuine news source, please! Even “following” specific topics and sources doesn’t seem to do anything. I’ll be deleting the app as soon as I am done with the review..Version: 5.13.1

Pointless change to new app, moving onI've used Google News for years, was very happy, minimalist user interface gave me a lot of information over 6-7 stories on an iPhone screen, now I get useless big pictures and 2 stories per screen, if I'd wanted cartoons I'd have gone elsewhere. Personalised news worked OK, bit buggy but ok. It's now useless, why would I want to see news articles from 2016, I don't even want to see your latest news which is dated August. And forget searching something specialist, a scientific or medical term for example, pretty much nothing comes up. Before they killed the old Google News I compared the new and the old dude by side, no comparison, more news in the old version..Version: 5.5

Ads + constant app refresh mar the experienceApp will refresh if you switch to another app for even 2 mins, meaning you’ll lose your place in the article you were reading and have to find it again. Ads also mar the experience..Version: 5.12.1

Large icons , inefficient screen spaceNo magazine subscription support, all paid content is almost unusable black screens no navigation ,. Despite paying money Google give no support. The download content feature does not work. Although it downloads once offline it mostly displays this content is not available offline. If you connect to inflight access point this app fails to authenticate, but then it rembers that and so requires you to authenticate which can only occur after the flight has finished The currated content displays identical stories from different magazines , that is a story written by the one author published by two magazines. It even does this when I say don't display stories like this on one of them..Version: 5.13.1

One step forward, two backI always liked this app, which seemed to work better for me than Apple News, but since the update it is more problematic. It insists on serving me news that I am not interested in or sports events. I tell it I’m not interested, but it makes no difference and I just end up with more of the same. It also judders badly - too busy loading video I don’t want to watch than providing a smooth experience. Overall, just too much of a pain to use. A shame really..Version: 5.0.1

Issues with news feedAfter reading an article and going back to the feed the app rebounds you back up the news feed so that you have to scroll all the way down to where you last were. This is insanely annoying and has been happening for months.Version: 5.47

Constant StutteringConstant stuttering on iPhone makes the app completely irritating to use now. Uninstalled..Version: 5.49

Needs to stop scrolling back to the top!I find this to be the best of all news apps, but it’s impossible to spend more than a few minutes browsing stories before the app scrolls you back to the top of the feed, requiring you to scroll down to where you were again! This has been happening for years, and doesn’t look like it’s going to be fixed despite being a very frustrating issue!.Version: 5.61

Good news source but terrible appGoogle news in general is a great service, aggregating various new sources into one platform so you can dig into topics and see various points of view. That being said, this app is garbage lately. When you click into a story and then back to the feed you almost always lose the place you were in the feed when clicking on the story when the app reverts you to being at the top of the feed for the specific section you’re reading. A real pain for anyone trying to get a easy digest of top stories. Even more concerning is that lately when using the app my phone loses connection to my WiFi for about a minute. Only happens when I use google news. Very strange. Even Speedtest can’t find my network for 1-2 mins when this happens..Version: 5.49

Pop-up bug still persists.It’s been months and Google has yet to fix the Safari pop-up bug. It’s irritating and ruins the user experience..Version: 5.22

Awful if you live in the UKSo I had to update the app from the old google news app and what a disappointment. The old app had all my topics that I was following, but now only seems to give me US news when I live in the UK. You go to the business tap and it’s all about American business, you go to the politics tab and it’s only about American issues. Can you make this app more local please google? I want to know what’s going on in my area not a country across an ocean.Version: 5.10

Let me choose!Although your able to select sources there is no clear or convenient way of seeing only news articles you wish to view, instead you are forced to view the stories it believes are of interest to you.... which it invariably gets wrong. This seems to be a common trend with news aggregators, why not just add a tab with curated/popular news articles rather than enforcing it. Due to this the app for me is completely useless.Version: 5.27

Shame on googleShame on google for trying to scare Canadians into cancelling the online news act. American tech should not have a say in what news Canadians have access to. Permanently deleted from my list of news apps!.Version: 5.79

Would be awesome if things weren't always crashingThe app itself is stable, and i prefer whatever algorithms are in place to feed me what i'm actually interested in, and i ESPECIALLY like being given a list of news articles that i can, like... read. for free. without being badgered to pay to read half of what i'm being presented with. but all the free news in the world is worthless if the page spits out an error halfway through the article. i thought maybe it was just a mercury news thing, but it's doing it with articles from other sources as well. i tried babying it, letting everything fully load and scrolling very slowly, but even if that worked (which it doesn't), it's 2021, i shouldn't have to do this. i reasonably expect a google app to be robust enough to handle SCROLLING..Version: 5.28

If only it worked as intendedAt first I thought ‘oh, what an improvement over Apple news’. Nope, not really. I keep all royal family news sources, 9honey and other celebrities gossiping rubbish but it keeps coming back. So annoying, if I tap ‘hide all stories from XXXX’ one would expect to have never see this source again. Not in this app though..Version: 5.1

Better than it began, but still needs improvementAfter getting sick of Apple New and it’s “curated” content and weird organization scheme I’ve been giving Gnews another look. Including local news is a neat feature, but doesn’t work when you present yesterday’s weather and traffic. The Thumbs Up/Down is a nice idea, but I don’t really see much change in my content tbh. Some of the content served up is a head scratcher - articles on the opposite end of the political spectrum or things that have some relation to my location, but not really to my actual interests. My biggest complaint is the repetitive content and the glut of two bit and garbage “news” outlets and blogs. I don’t need 10 articles telling me the same thing over and over and over again. Clean up your feed, focus on legit blogs and outlets, adjust to user feedback more quickly, remove irrelevant articles (old sales, weather & traffic), and this app will be a winner. Original review from years ago: This replaced Google Currents, and has been a disappointing experience. Currents was customizable in terms of content selection and was a minimalist reader for my chosen content. This new version puts emphasis on pay walled sites and serves up preconfigured sections (like a analog newspaper). They also removed the nifty drag gesture for minimizing the current selected article..Version: 5.11

Mostly unrelated to what I’m Looking forThe app allows you to follow different sources but then will not populate your news feed with stories from the sources you followed. Instead it just shows you random stories from sources you have expressed no interest in and if you do want to see stories from your sources, you will have to go to each source individually to see what they have posted. Overall it makes the app very inconvenient to use and leaves you with a bunch of news you don’t actually care about. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone who is particular about where they get there news from..Version: 5.73

Google news reviewA nice little app, concise and clear. Very useful for quickly catching up on things. Totally ruined by the catastrophic virus of adverts for which the only cure is an existential one for the app which is total deletion. Google win either way with current practice of paying for ad free services and charging advertisers for space. The money tree that Google planted is growing well. Rant over. Thanks ever so much..Version: 5.22

MehThis new version is pretty, but feels more like infotainment eye candy than a news portal. I used to go to the old Google news to quickly scan top stories, view a few alternative headlines to get a sense of different media perspectives, and then dive into stories of interest. It was usually easy to figure out which story was text versus only video so I could choose which to view. This new version of Google News is not designed for any of that. Instead, it’s a screen with giant quasi-animated images with moving titling that snare my attention even though the story has no interest to me. It’s distracting and the scrolling text makes me wonder whose editorial opinion I’m seeing, where the old summaries didn’t. It also takes longer to scan through than the old summaries. I can only see two or three stories at a time so have to scroll forever for even a small sample. It now starts in the Favorites section, which lists a weird combination of stories, many of which I do not find interesting but I don’t see an easy way to curate. Further, the fact that it automatically logs in with whatever account it finds, even on a shared device where a few of us have different gmail accounts, is annoying..Version: 5.5

Pop up adsPop up ads show up on this app every now and then..Version: 5.57

There was an error displaying this contentThis app could be great, and most of the time it picks relevant news articles. However, it regularly has issues that get really frustrating. The biggest is being half way through an article and it suddenly pops up with “There was an error displaying this content” preventing the rest of the article being read. There’s also other issues where it’s sometimes really difficult to get back to the article list, sometimes impossible resulting in me having to force close the app and start again. Fix these issues and it would be very good, but as it is it’s just infuriating at times..Version: 5.64

Once brilliant now unusable due to bugsGoogle is really clever at knowing what I want to read. A nice mix of global, national and local news along with specialist stuff I'm interested in. No other app can match it for that. But when I'm scrolling and go in to an article, sometimes, more often once I've scrolled pretty far down my feed, it will just take me back to the top and I have to scroll all the way down to find my place. Or it will randomly refresh all the articles so my feed has changed before I get to see all the current articles. Like most Google properties these days apart from search, it's gone from good to bad and I need to find a replacement..Version: 5.43

Adding to DisappointmentPoorly designed app. This is the only app that competes with Apple News, which is terrible. This is my main smartphone app. I spend more than a dozen hours a week using it. What did you do!?! I hate it. The feed doesn’t load sometimes. The app freezes. The feed stops loading, while reading. Requiring you to reload the app and losing your place. The curation is worse. The local news is gone. The app is a battery hog. The app using too much data for a news app. Why is it always trying to run in the background? Why is it better at loading content while I’m not using it? The news isn’t updating as often. The main draw for Google News is that it’s always updating new content. The full coverage feature is great, when the app works. Please pay a couple of people to tighten this app up for us Google. Discouraged news junkie. 😥.Version: 5.6

Keeps updating while in the middle of looking at articlesBig problem is that in the middle of scrolling through news articles, the reader will jump to the top. So you lose your place in the articles. It should do what other readers have done. Take a snapshot of the articles. When an update occurs, provide a button to refresh. If I don’t press the button, I’m still reading through my snapshot. This snapshot should also apply, when I’m in the middle of reading an article. When I go back, it should be to my snapshot of articles, and NOT, some updated version. This is the reason, I stopped using USA Today reader. It would jump around, while I’m reading or scrolling.Version: 5.43

Poor design on iPadThis app doesn’t feel designed for iPad at all, its just a blown up version of the phone app. Needs a redesign to take advantage of the big screen, and actually see more than 2 articles at once..Version: 5.33

Another Google product that goes backwardsWas quite happy with the old one. I prefer smaller titles and the ability to scroll through long lists. Instead I’m now treated like an idiot and made to scroll through large pics I don’t need to see. And the lack of customisation of the feed is just as bad as it ever was if not worse. What was the point of this? Is Google now Apple? i.e. used to understand UX meant listening to people; now “this is the ux we believe you should have and if you don’t like it you’re the problem.”.Version: 5.6

Hated the new Google newsThere is no option to switch to the old style, this is just imposed to you! I have no control of news I want to see. Type of news business, sports, world, etc Before I could choose the language.Version: 5.59

Lots of content, massive memory hogI like Google News since it has lots of content, but unfortunately Google News seems to loads huge amounts of space into the iPhone system memory. It also will keep checking the internet, I think to keep content up to date? Google news work, but it is a very space and internet heavy app. Honestly I'd rather pay $13 for the Apple News then use Google News..Version: 5.57

Update after update, still annoyingThe app will often poorly present articles that, I suspect, are not optimised for google news. Returning to a feed will force articles to refresh only for you to miss out on another article you wanted to read. Lastly, why is there no motoring/automotive section and instead lumping transport under the technology banner?.Version: 5.9

Totally unstable: hangs constantly and sharing issuesGoogle news offers unique features that make it one of my 3 primary news consumption apps on my phone. (The others being Artifact and Newsify - an RSS reader). However, it’s infuriating to use because it hangs and freezes constantly when using the app. I’d say once every 15 minutes or so. It also hangs and freezes when trying to use the share sheet. I have a number of shortcuts added to my share sheet but they work fine in Safari and other applications. It’s maddening to not be able to send news articles to a a note taking service, to friends via text, or to summarize them with AI like I can in other apps because sharing doesn’t work without freezing the app. This bug has been present for about 6 months..Version: 5.88

Reset to Top of PageWhy Google when I open an article do I have to start at the top of the article list when going back? Turning off background refresh does not help nor does deleting and reinstalling. Who want’s to scroll endlessly past articles you’ve already seen to get to the unread material?.Version: 5.48

Bring back the old appWhy did you take a perfectly good, highly efficient app and replace it with this dross? Instead of being able to quickly scan a large number of articles in seconds I now have to scroll through pages of useless pictures to get an overview of the days news. Grrrr..Version: 5.5

One sidedMore recently Ive noticed the extreme left news articles non stop. Completely one sided. And then the jimmy Kimmel bashes trump know the guy famous from the man show...the show that was about everything that he now makes fun of republicans for...(hypocritical much) it’s honestly disturbing how 1 dimensional the news has gotten. I’d like 1 news source that’s actually open minded and not pushing their companies views or agendas. I’ve hit the do not show or fewer stories option and literally have had that very same article pop up 10 more times. We get it google you’re left. Cool I don’t care I also don’t care about what some celebrity ate and the fact I have to ignore 10 of the same articles only to have them reappear is irritating. At 1st I thought google news was better then apple I think they’re both on the same level of junk..Version: 5.4
