The clean layout of the Google News app will help attract more users. We gave the new app a spin to find out if it has a shot at being the most effective way to read the news. Nowadays it rolls out formally, replacing the present Google Play Newsstand, which started on iOS in 2104 as a magazine and news subscription hub. Tapping the + icon will allow you to search for topics, locations, and sources you want to add to your list, and the more of these you add, the better Google News will be at delivering stories you know you'll like. The AI factor comes into play when the news is personalised and customised as per the respective user.
A "Headlines" section features non-personalized news articles from around the world, grouped into different categories. When the app is opened, "For You" brings you a brief look at five stories based on your past reading interests; this is a combination of top headlines, local stories, and topics that Google has detected an interest in on your part.
Subsequent "full coverage" sections on topics such as Brexit seemed to have difficulty pulling together stories on the same issue. Clicking on a particular story will pull up the complete details of the news that may include opinions, tweets, videos, articles, etc.
Each section curates news from around the web and various publications, giving you the option to read or listen to the news source (s) of your choice.
"This approach means Google News understands the people, places and things involved in a story as it evolves, and connects how they relate to one another".
"Favourites" is a way for users to customise Google News without the use of AI.
In an effort to work more collaboratively with publishers, a new feature due soon called "Subscribe with Google" will let outlets and websites offer subscription-based content. Users can use their Google account to avail of these offers once the feature is rolled out.
