First, you eliminated the easy way of reading my library. Since then, I haven't read anything from it because I don't feel it deserves extra taps. Now you eliminate the topic tabs. All there is now is briefing and some "headlines." You must really hate people reading the news. Or are you simply trying to make your pro-Hillary stance easier to peddle? Don't think I didn't notice how everything you "curated" wasn't pro-Hillary and anti-Trump. Considering I mostly look at tech and science stuff.
How can an app with so much data on me still have so little idea what I'm interested in? Topics I never ever read about dominate my news feed now. The AI powered similar stories are usually the exact same story from a different source which is pointless. Consistently shows me news in other languages. Generally slow to load and frequently can't open articles. Ads often seem to auto-click.
It just ruined a perfectly good app. I had my library as the main screen. Now it's buried down in an inconvenient place. The new navigation makes no sense. The navigation with the bottom bar is horrible. I was able to go left and right between topics. Now I need to do 4 taps to switch between topics. If Google wants us to just read the "for you" feed, it can remove the bottom bar and all the complicated settings of this app.
No matter how many times I ask this to stop recommending articles on sport, television and celebrities there they are again the next time I refresh the content. A frustrating experience. Edit: A month later and I'm still getting unwanted sport, television and celebrity stories. Down to 1 star. Does Google actually know what 'recommend fewer stories like this' actually means? Another month and I still get far too many sport stories. Come on Google, you can do better than this.
Google News Algorithms keep showing me left wing crap and CNN fake news. Anything I subscribe to it just shows me hate speech articles bitching about those news sources and pushes my actual subscriptions way down the list. Newsflash I like my own varied sources. When I click stop showing from a particular source and reload the app I will get 5 or 6 recommendations from the source I just blocked. With Google reader gone too it's like Google is saying "here this is what you are allowed to read" I'll just use RSS if Google are so biased with their dogs in a race. 0 stars. Unworthy of use.
Nice layout, but there is clearly an agenda at work here. I am constantly presented with articles from Huffington Post and CNN, even though I never read those. I'm constantly barraged with anti Trump, pro DNC articles, even if it requires pushing old news to the top. No way to select sources, and delivering news based on what I read appears to be a false claim. Uninstalled.
