  • I hate the sideways scrolling news bites

    By hyosilver77
    Those sideways scrolling news bites are beyond irritating, they are time-consuming and infuriatingly redundant, with scant information.
  • Copy does not work.

    By Bruce Hobbs
    I can't copy text from a news article. I select the text, select Copy, then go to Facrbooknan Paste. Nothing! I have to copy the link, open the story in a browser then copy the text from the browser. Please fix this. Thank you. (I tried reporting this but got nowhere. App support shows every app they have.)
  • User has little control over content

    By Twxxlrsz
    I’ve used this app for several years. Several things about it really bother me, to the point where I’m looking for a new news app. You will see the same articles in your feed for days, even if you’ve already read them. There is no way to say “stop showing this article.” If you use the “Show less like this” option, it doesn’t seem to do anything. For about 3 months, every time a Kardashian article showed up, I selected “show less like this.” I still see Kardashian articles. (I really don’t care!) Google should do better.
  • You make me feel special lol

    I love the "for you" sections! I'm looking for something I haven't seen yet though...
  • Can’t verify Washington Post subscriptions

    Works on the same google account on Android but it’s not recognized on iOS and SSO does not work at all.
  • Biased news selections

    By Army Law Dog65
    I keep this app service for a while hoping that it would do a better job of selecting stories based on what I read. This was not the case. The app does give the option to no longer get stories from a source but the source was not the problem. There is some good journalism out there from many sources but it appears I only get to read journalism from a particular viewpoint. I appreciate other people’s views and sometimes learn why a person or group feels the way the do whether I agree with them or not. But, I would like to read some articles from viewpoints I do agree with too. The app could do a better job of allow the reader to select what they want to read than is currently available.

    ***UPDATE*** I deleted, them re-installed the app since my previous post below. The app is working fine now. The app crashes in about 20 seconds after it’s opened. This is annoying. I have realized that I’ve become overly reliant on Google as my sole news source aggregator. I have had to find replacement sources.
  • Google News a quick place to get the updates I need

    By gabbyd16
    Google news is a great app that shows me the news I’m interested in and gets me my daily news updates I need. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a quick news update that doesn’t have the time to watch hours of news on tv.
  • Not responsive

    By velomonk
    As an aggregator I guess Google news is OK. My main complaint is it’s not very responsive to input. I will dislike/request not to see subjects or people and they will repeatedly pop up in my feed.
  • app crashes constantly and consistently

    By azurepalm
    latest version as of this review is crashing constantly and consistently (less than a minute of app use or so every time).
