About this app

The updated 9NEWS app gives you access to all the latest breaking news from a trusted team of journalists, with custom alerts so you never miss anything. 9NEWS has been covering Australia and the world for more than 60 years so you know it's a source you can rely on.

You can swipe through all the news and videos in our completely re-designed app experience and subscribe to a variety of alerts, including Sport, Politics, World, Finance, Weather, Entertainment and Technology.

The app uses geo-targeting to alert you to 'News Near Me'. This feature sends an alert for breaking news within a few kilometres of your current location – just allow access to your location when prompted. This can be especially useful for alerts about traffic delays or accidents, fires, floods, and police operations.

We understand that too many alerts can be intrusive, so our team will only send ones we think you will find truly interesting. Our alerts are sent without an audible tone so you won't be disturbed at the wrong time.

The 9NEWS app also allows you to set your location by city or postcode so you see extra stories from your state and weather forecasts for exactly where you live.

If you feel you're getting too many alerts, or too few, you can easily change your subscriptions within the app on the Settings screen.

Please note: This app features Nielsen's proprietary measurement software which will allow you to contribute to market research or audience ratings services. Please see www.nielsen.com/digitalprivacy for more information.

Throughout many years using this app I've noticed that they must have skeleton staff on weekends because the news is fairly sparse and that they focus a lot on news from Queensland. Also, if the story links to the 9 website, you can't read the full article, just the headline- which is incredibly annoying. It's still a pretty good free snapshot of current news though.

Out of all the Chanel apps, by far 9 has created a unique and powerfully designed user friendly access to everything one could possibly need from an app point of you. Great job 9. I've been watching you from a 4 yr old sitting on he's grandma's lap watching wheel of fortune. Thanks 9 and all the team behind the scenes aswell as the great people in front of the camera's.
