Google has released its all-new version of Google News in the App Store, which comes as an update to the existing Google Play Newsstand iOS app. "Newsstand" is the last section of the new Google News app.
This content is restricted to site members. Google says these new algorithms also help to bring breaking news through a complex combination of all the relevant stories and arrange them in an easy-to-understand format.
The dramatic redesign of the News app may lured people away from the popular Apple version, but time is needed to gauge the general reaction to the new offering. Along with the five stories, the app also features algorithmically chosen articles and local news stories.
The next section - "Headlines" - dives more deeply into the latest news, covering global, U.S., business, technology, entertainment, sports, science and health segments. In doing so, the app "learns" what you like and makes adjustments to your content. Most of all, it draws from a number of resources to provide packages of view, evaluation and fact-checked posts focused on particular newsworthy events, providing users a good platform from which to compose their minds regarding current affairs.
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. The page also contains featured content based on the topics you love.
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.
Finally, the Newsstand tab lets you see a magazine-like interface for specific publications, such as CNN, Fox News, The New York Times, Reuters, and more.
