App Reviews

  • I hate the new app!

    By PowerUser85
    The new format requires you to scroll forever to see what’s happening. The old app was much better, with quick overviews, so you can read what interests you. Google! Fire your new app designers and go back to a quick overview!
  • Clearly expresses left media bias

    By Ved on arrival
    I disliked, his and blocked many news stories and channels but the same sources kept popping up in my feed over and over again. Eventually I decided to delete the app.
  • A bit of a Google misfire

    By EricInChicago
    There’s lots to like about getting so many diverse news options in one place. However, unlike Apple News, some sources (Washington Post, if I recall) have limits on the number of free articles you can read in a month. And I’d like to find an option to tone down the graphics (like the floating text over the pictures on the main screen).
  • Unwieldy

    By 2much!
    Avalanche of stories with confusing, ineffective tools to winnow and focus personal priorities. Glitzy but ultimately like trying to drink from a fire hose.
  • To much Surfacing

    By badview
    I would like a screen with more headlines and less pictures/videos.
  • Excellent source to get multiple viewpoints

    By typxyr
    I love to see the differences of options on ideas.
  • App is great; iPhone widget NEEDS fix

    By Hiit Hot Gurl
    I enjoy the google news app and I’m glad I downloaded it. However, the corresponding widget has a massive flaw that the developers should put at the top of their to-do prioritization list. It really doesn’t work. It constantly will flash a few seconds of preview of the 4 suggested stories they present in the widget, and then they disappear, replaced by a gray screen and the message “unable to load”. Google, you do SO many things and have so many apps...take the time to fix this widget bug to stay in the game against the apple news app!!
  • Using up too much data

    By Melchiah_III
    While I love the app itself, it refreshes at random time when I’m not connected to WiFi and uses up a lot of data. In the past couple of days this app has used up nearly 300Mb of my cellular data. Google needs to program this app to refresh only when WiFi is available so it stops using up my monthly quota for data!
  • New vs Old

    By bohley
    I prefer the old format which was much easier to scan for items of interest. New version is big on graphics and short on content with too many layers to details.
  • No “compact” mode, jittery scrolling on iPhone 7

    By Jason6851
    Please add a compact mode so I don’t have to scroll through large images in the headlines, and fix scrolling performance.
