  • Too much added headache

    Honestly, the app was so clean before. Now it’s too flashy
  • Fix the “See Fewer/Hide All From Function”

    I normally use Google News as my news source. However I typically use it for gaming news and other things that I’m interested in. The “See Fewer” and “Hide All” from so-and-so source do not work the way they should. If I select “See Fewer” it means I’m not interested in the topic and would like to see LESS of that topic. It does NOT mean I want to see more of the topic. And no, I’m not accidentally pressing the option that gives more of that topic. I have no interest stuff like football or other sports yet I get spammed to sh*t with sports related articles. There’s also an issue where sources that are on your hidden sources list will reappear in your “For You” section. I’ve hidden Fansided (a sports website) about nine times and it keeps reappearing in my feed! You should also have the option to hide videos and remove tweets for certain articles (because Twitter is not a news source in any way).
  • Flipboard replacement!

    All in all I’m rather happy with the app. The one bit I would refine is the open in browser setting, it open an article as a webview in the app, and another tap is required to them open that article in the browser. There is no need for the webview preview imho. In regard to replacing flipboard I’m mostly happy that ads don’t take over the app when viewing articles and cause odd problems like video playing automatically or pop ups being out of control. 👍
  • Not accessible; horrible visual design

    By Anna the Wacky Banana
    This app doesn’t respect the ios system accessibility settings. There’s an option which seems like it would do this, but it doesn’t work. Subsequently, the text of articles is waaay to small for anyone over the age of 40 to read. (But since there are few of said people at Google, they obviously never considered this) Also, the highly gratuitous “Ken Burns Effect” on article thumbnail images is super annoying. Not sure why someone thought that was a good idea. Just because you *can* make a nifty animation doesn’t mean you should! Very unusable. Deleted.
  • Can we adults have the old Google news back, PLEASE?

    By Kind Kurmudgeon
    The millennials can have all the pictures and infinite scroll. I don’t need it. I want news and I don’t want to scroll for an hour to see a summary of headlines. This new version is truly horrible.
  • Go back to earlier version/layout

    I keep getting “An unknown error occurred.” when I login to the Washington Post from the Google News app. This prevents me from reading their articles.
  • Daily news

    By Scottjbear
    Not very friendly for daily news updates, it is never in order by date which is frustrating for me. Would also like to be able to select story / subject updates.
