Getting better. The latest updates are welcome for sure. Glad to see option to hide articles from certain sites. Especially when some sites pop up yet say a subscription is needed. Or mention you are using one of x number of articles for the month. The ABILITY TO LIKE or favorite articles/topics would be nice. So users can see what and pick what Google shows more of. LAST BUT NOT LEAST. ADS/AD BANNERS/VIDEOS. This being Google I'm not going I'm not holding my breath. But if Google mixes all kinds of garbage in this nice looking app/service I know it's going to be easy to not even use it. Not going to waste time seeing/watching billboards of ads or other mess.
Great news app that is beautiful and the recommendations are always spot on. By far the best news app out there. Great job Google!
Love the update (and finally a web version!), however would be nice if we can remove news because (1) we're not interested, (2) we're done reading or (3) the article is just too old (I'm seeing articles from 2013!). Right now, the only option we have is to "hide" articles from a specific provider (e.g. CNN/BBC) or "hide" an article regarding a specific topic. Would also love it if the news can be read to us (very useful as an alarm, or when we are driving...)
Gone downhill I used to love this newsreader, but lately it's been forcing content into my lists that I do not desire and cannot remove. I spend more time scrolling to find news stories that interest me than actually reading the few articles that i can find. I can't block publishers from my feed. Sigh. This is my first Google app that I have uninstalled.
Terrible since last change I use to love this app for seeing news on topics I liked. With horizontal scrolling it was easier to bypass topics I didn't want to read at that time. Now the app scrolls vertical and you must see all of your topics and Google advertisement before going to a particular news feed. This is just like any other news feed app where before the interface was better and more user friendly.
My goto news feed I love this app for curating a fantastic feed of news pieces. Only issue is that since they have reconfigured the app one needs top go and search for tech news or other specific heads. They have a good selection of feeds, including financial times and nyt. So many times I ended up taking ft here and not in the actual app- this is that good
