Google has rolled out the latest version of its Google News app with AI support for Android and iOS users and is now available in 127 countries. To sum it up, the developers revisited the original news app and integrated the company's innovative AI-powered technology. The new Google News app has a ton of new features, and the improved algorithm of the app allows users to get access to more relevant content more easily. The refreshed app, that replaces the old Google Play Newsstand app, is now divided into four sections.
The plethora of news sites and media outlets co-existing online can be overwhelming for even the most engaged current affairs readers, but Google hopes its polished new News app will make things easier for users who want to keep up to date with what matters to them.
Heading over to the next section, there's a "Headlines" section, where it has sections categorised like latest, India, World, Business, Entertainment and sports, which is very much identical to the older Google News app.
"Newsstand" aggregates media and will eventually offer thousands of magazine titles users can follow by subscribing to or selecting a start icon.
Your briefing - It can be almost impossible to keep up with every story you care about. The personalized section "For You" becomes better over time as the app learns what preferences individual users have when it comes to viewing news content.
Full coverage - Understand the full context on any story with just a tap. News agencies/organisations in this section all support the Google AMP standard, which means the pages will load in quick and clean fashion without bouncing you first through a mobile browser.
Credible sources - Find quality content from a diverse set of credible publishers and discover sources you haven't heard of before. Will it replace Apple News for you? Let us know how you like it.
