Just what you would expect from Google

Instagramming of News

1
Full screens of irrelevant photos selected by AI with brief captions. No news, not even a news summary. Tap each photo to find out if there’s anything interesting behind it, or don’t. Better yet, go visit a real news site and READ the news to learn what’s going on in the world.

Biased

Obviously politically biased towards the left! Because of that known fact I can’t believe much of what’s written!

We need TRUE dark mode

The idea is to save battery, so can you please do what twitter did, and give us an option for true dark mode, pitch black #000? Thanks.

Better than it began, but still needs improvement

After getting sick of Apple New and it’s “curated” content and weird organization scheme I’ve been giving Gnews another look. Including local news is a neat feature, but doesn’t work when you present yesterday’s weather and traffic. The Thumbs Up/Down is a nice idea, but I don’t really see much change in my content tbh. Some of the content served up is a head scratcher - articles on the opposite end of the political spectrum or things that have some relation to my location, but not really to my actual interests. My biggest complaint is the repetitive content and the glut of two bit and garbage “news” outlets and blogs. I don’t need 10 articles telling me the same thing over and over and over again. Clean up your feed, focus on legit blogs and outlets, adjust to user feedback more quickly, remove irrelevant articles (old sales, weather & traffic), and this app will be a winner. Original review from years ago: This replaced Google Currents, and has been a disappointing experience. Currents was customizable in terms of content selection and was a minimalist reader for my chosen content. This new version puts emphasis on pay walled sites and serves up preconfigured sections (like a analog newspaper). They also removed the nifty drag gesture for minimizing the current selected article.

Less like this

No matter how many times I tell the app I want fewer of certain articles to appear, they continue to return to my feed. For anyone that remembers Google Reader, this app is a disgrace for what app was able to accomplish.

Would be much better without restricted sites

Google news selection is very good but spoiled by sites which require subscription to read story

Sources not exclusive

2
Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but after signing in, selecting my sources and removing all topics/location etc. I still see stories from sources I'm not interested in.
