All-New Google News for iOS Download Hits the App Store

At the Google I/O 2018 developer conference, the search giant introduced a new and revamped Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered Google News app. Google also mentioned that the app will be rolled out to iOS users within a week.

iPhone and iPad users can download the Google News app directly from the App Store today for free.

This content is restricted to site members.

The new app features four sections which include news content chronologically, breaking news, local news, and stories. On first opening, the "For You" tab shows you the top five stories of the moment with selected opinion articles and longer pieces to read below the bulletin.

Google News for iOS comes at a time when Apple is putting an increasingly heavy focus on its own Apple News app. You can sort by the latest stories, as well as topics such as business, technology, sports, science, entertainment, and health. However, all the top articles in any particular section are streamlined in a stories (which Google calls it Full coverage) and autoplay videos format similar to the feed you notice on Instagram or Twitter. Keep in mind that the publications found on the Newsstand support Google AMP standard, which technically means the pages will load way quicker without bouncing like in a normal browser.

Further, the app showcases "Favourites" section, where a user can select prefered news sources, topics which the user is interested in, location-based news, can save news searches and stories (which can be read later).

Tweets, opinions, analysis, and comments are curated into a big bundle of content related to whatever big news story you're looking at. Google said last week that it plans to offer over 1,0000 magazine titles you can follow by tapping a star icon or subscribing to.
