  • To much politics

    By 3.2..1. Salvo
    To much news about politics not enough about everything else I am interested in.
  • Trash

    By thesuperalice
    I used the old Google News & Weather app because of its clean interface and the ability to get a quick briefing in the morning. I don’t want the feed to reset and endlessly scroll. I don’t want the story I’m on to disappear as soon as I momentarily switch to another app, requiring me to scroll back through and try to dig it up again. And this is a personal preference, but I *really* appreciated that Google News & Weather didn’t have so many g*d* pictures & videos. It felt like I was reading the news—not plowing through Snapchat. It feels like the old app was designed to actually get the news that someone cared about to them. The new app seems designed by someone who doesn’t care what trash they shove down your throat, as long as you stay on the app for as long as possible.
  • The old version is better!

    By Class of 80
    I am grateful that the new Google News app did not delete the old one because I could compare both versions. The old version is faster and manages the screen better. The new version is particularly annoying because it doesn’t show nearly as many headlines per screen.
  • Can’t choose the news

    By Free Sapiens
    For some reason, the app wants me to have news about North Korea. I tried to remove that like 100 times, and it is coming back. So it is forcing me to have the North Korean news... I am speechless.
  • Better before

    By Snufflemud
    It would be nice to be able to roll back to the previous version. I preferred the summary text rather than a full screen picture.
  • Poor layout.

    By jayslittlesister
    I love google news but I hate the large pictures. It was nice to have a small picture with a synopsis, and the ability to see more than one news story before scrolling down. Plus the white background is too bright.
  • No ability to filter keywords, only sources

    By Halfdeafmusic
    I spent all my time trying to get sports and celebrity news out of my feed. Literally I spent days “hiding” sources, scores of them. I won’t use this app until there’s an option to either filter keywords out, or say “no sports news in my feed”. You guys can do better.
  • Persian language???

  • Works about 1% of time

    By traveling senior
    All I get most of the time is unknown error! This was my go to for fast news but now I go to lots of other apps. Can I get the old version back - please!!!
  • Glad I didn’t delete the old app

    By jb00723
    I know a lot of people have blazing fast WiFi and huge mobile screens, but there are also a lot of us that don’t. The huge images drown everything else out on my screen. I want to be able to quickly skim headlines for news, which means this app is fairly useless to me. Sticking with the older one unless they give this a redesign.
