Your guide to the new AI-powered Google News app

Google launches 'Wear OS Phone' app on the Play Store and adds 'Quick Replies' feature

Google replaces its Play Newsstand app on iOS with its reworked AI-powered News app. The new version of the news app with AI support was earlier teased at the recently concluded Google I/O 2018 event.

The app divides everything into four sections, with the first one being "For You", which is the top 5 reports the artificial intelligence determines to be of value to the user.

The new Google News improves upon the old Newsstand app, and has been created to compete directly with Apple News.

Apart from that, nothing new has been discovered on the surface yet that means all the development hours have been devoted to fixing the internals for the overall stability of the app.

The new Google News app is created to keep you up to date with current affairs, with stories from trustworthy sources. Tapping the + icon will allow you to search for topics, locations, and sources you want to add to your list, and the more of these you add, the better Google News will be at delivering stories you know you'll like. You can sort by the latest stories, as well as topics such as business, technology, sports, science, entertainment, and health.

Each section curates news from around the web and various publications, giving you the option to read or listen to the news source (s) of your choice.

When you want to dive deeper into an interesting story, the multicolored Full Coverage button will open a new page broken into different categories: Top coverage, videos, From Twitter, Opinion and All Coverage.




Google hasn't explained how it determines which news sources are reliable, but it says they are curated.

You can install the app now on iOS or Android by clicking on the appropriate link.

Yes, in some ways.

In an effort to work more collaboratively with publishers, a new feature due soon called "Subscribe with Google" will let outlets and websites offer subscription-based content. Users can use their Google account to avail of these offers once the feature is rolled out.

"Favourites" is a way for users to customise Google News without the use of AI. Unlike Apple News, Google News pulls in tweets about stories, which are often a good way to learn about news as it breaks.

Google News and Weather seems to be sticking around for the time being, but we wouldn't be surprised if it's deprecated some time in the future, or tuned into an app exclusively for weather.
