  • Very old stories and constant refreshes

    By Erelon
    I want a good news app. I thought this might be it. Flipboard is full of redirects to the App Store and Apple news is now just one big ad for Apple news+. Unfortunately google news is only sort of useful while you have it open. Switch to another app or just let your phone go to sleep and it will reset you to the top of your briefing. As you scroll back down you’ll see so many stories that say they are days old, stories that have been in the “for you” list even longer than that. All of this is both annoying and useless.
  • It crashes in the middle of reading the article with no reason.

    By GV star
    Ok an iPhone 6plus, this app is crashing while reading an article and forces me to go back and reload it again with the same experience. I also noticed the app lagging time to time and freezes screen until I lock and unlock my phone again. Another drawback is the battery usage. It kills %50 of my batter in about 1 hour. I feel like something is using my device behind the scene when google news app is running and I don’t know what it is. Google, looking at you and your privacy practices!!!

  • Buen contenido

    By 🤬😡publicidad
    Buen contenido pero muchos comerciales son más cuadros de imágenes de basura que no da deceso de leer nada en ninguna página de Google
  • Doesn’t Stay on the Story I’m Reading!

    By Ron Till Dawn
    This is an easy fix and I’ll update my review once fixed. If I’m reading a story, and I get a text, once I come back to the story I was reading, it starts back at the main page. This means I have to search for that story again and sometimes that takes some time and it is always annoying. Don’t reload the app every time I leave if for a few seconds! Stay on the sorry I was reading! I look forward to updating my review once this non-sensical design is fixed.

    The variety
  • Finally fed up enough to delete

    By BigAV
    I’ve never been much of a fan of this app. Google has all the data in the world on me and yet I only ever see news feeds with a very limited focus and heaven forbid you ever click on clickbait or you’ll never get that off your feed. Even when you rate the content with a thumbs down it pops right back up and eve seems to give you more of it. Then if you actually find an article worth reading, not only do you never see more content like it, if you can’t finishing reading it right then and your phone locks it closes out the article and you’ll never see it again. Just overall poor user experience and poor suggestion algorithm that refuses to learn from what you tell it.
  • Resets too often

    By Danyeager
    I like the app, but it is very frustrating how often it resets after I switch out of the app or turn my screen off. Sometimes I will switch to a text message for 5-10 seconds, and when I switch back the article I was reading is gone and the app has restarted. It gets pretty annoying.
  • Doesn't save article in the background when switching between apps

    By ☀️😎🌴
    So annoying when I'm in the middle of reading an article I get out of the app for literally 30 seconds to read an email then jump back into the app and the article is gone, news feed is refreshed and there no way of finding it unless I saved it first.
  • Great app annoying features

    By techmist
    The most annoying thing about the app - in middle of reading an news article if you either close the phone or move to some other app for some time... after returning to the google news app the article is no were to the found and the app has refreshed and reseted to the start screen. Please provide a way to stop this behavior.
