Revamped, AI-powered Google News app goes live on Android, iOS

Google has rolled out the latest version of its Google News app with AI support for Android and iOS users and is now available in 127 countries.

The new Google News on iOS is technically same as the users get on their Android platforms.

On opening the app, the users will find a "For You" section that has been created to provide the top five news of the moment followed by a tailor-made section that will provide longer news articles.

Google announced new changes coming to Google News at its recent I/O developer conference, noting the new app would come with a brand new redesign, for an improved reading experience. For me, this ranged from some political news to technology and sports. Here, the user can mark out preferred topics, news or location-based information. "Headline" follows next and is apparently a good mix of everything and further divides everything into sections such as Business, Technology, Entertainment, and more. This, in turn, will show you the top content from the criteria you select. With this new addition to the app, users can subscribe to media organizations who either offer a monthly subscription for web/print access or charge a monthly fee to bypass a web paywall. This feature means users will not exclusively be served a biased selection of news, but will expose everyone to the same stories.

He added: "I repeat that the use of violence never leads to peace". "War calls war, violence calls violence". Calling for "dialogue, justice and peace", Francis said violence "has never led to peace".

Full coverage - Understand the full context on any story with just a tap. All served up in the Google News app.

Credible sources - Find quality content from a diverse set of credible publishers and discover sources you haven't heard of before.

Some people might be surprised to find out that the older app is no longer available on their devices but should be glad to know that the revamped app took its place after the update. The process of subscribing will use a user's Google account, and the payment information they already have on file.
