The new AI-driven Google News app comes to iOS

17 May 2018

The app divides everything into four sections, with the first one being "For You", which is the top 5 reports the artificial intelligence determines to be of value to the user. At its recent Google I/O conference, the company promised that the app would make heavy use of machine learning and AI to deliver news from a variety of different news sources and would give its users the full picture of a story rather than just relying on a single viewpoint. You can select your preferred news sources, save stories for Pocket-style reading afterward, and save locations and text-based searches for later too. Replacing the neglected Newsstand service from Google, and seen as a direct competitor to the Apple News app, Google News is now available on the App Store... Also, the app will learn from your habits, and serve you with better news selection over time.

There's also a list of Headlines, which is a mix of news across various categories, such as sports, tech and business. The AI factor comes into play when the news is personalised and customised as per the respective user. This helps you quickly get up to date about a particular story. If you don't care and want the new experience, expect a "cleaner" look, a "smarter" briefing, and a 360-degree view of big news stories that includes stories from multiple outlets, social media, and YouTube.

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. Google calls this "Full Coverage". "Newsstand" is the last section of the new Google News app.
