Google begins rolling out the AI-powered Google News app for iOS users

New Google News App Should be Available to Everyone Now

The app, which replaces the Google Play Newsstand app on iOS and Android, is continuing to roll out to users across 127 different countries.

However, first impressions of the app suggest that Google's algorithms still have a little way to go if they want to provide a truly "curated" news service.

The new Google News app - which replaces Google's former Play Newsstand app - appears to borrow some of its UI concepts from Apple News; for example, a new "Your briefing" section provides an overview of user-tailored content in one place, mixing headlines, local news, and breaking developments on a focused set of topics. "For You" provides you a Fast summary of five tales, Based on your previous reading habits, even though you can edit it by notification The program to show you less or more content on a particular topic.

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

The Google News app is available for both iPhone and iPad on the App Store.

Furthermore, if you get a prompt saying can't install the APK file from unknown sources, then all need to do is just head over to Settings Security and just scroll down and when you see the Unknown Sources option, tap to enable it.

"Headlines" is more of an in-depth look at the latest news, covering all the usual topics from technology and politics to entertainment and science reporting. It can also put together a timeline so you can see how events have unfolded so far.

Google announced the new app at its 2018 IO conference, revealing that it would use machine learning to surface interesting stories from trustworthy publishers.

Google says it will share other ways publishers can optimize visibility in Google News in the near future. Unlike Apple News, Google News pulls in tweets about stories, which are often a good way to learn about news as it breaks. The effort is also to make it more supportive of media publications.

"Favourites" is a way for users to customise Google News without the use of AI.

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.
