Google News & Weather now on the Play store with a new look

UPDATE: The News & Weather App is now available on iOS here.

News happens 24/7. To keep up with a fast-paced news cycle, you need a fast-paced app. That was our objective in updating Google News and Weather. It makes the news easier to browse, simpler to digest, and more easily tailored to the news you care about.

Upgrade to the latest version of the app or download it from Google Play here -- including a new tablet version -- for the best of Google News:

  • Swipe through categories like Business, Technology and Sports or add your own sections for specific topics or places
  • Tap into any story for a variety of viewpoints, including in-depth articles, op-eds, and local perspectives
  • Get comprehensive coverage from over 65,000 publications worldwide, and a choice of more than 60 country-specific editions
  • Sign in with your Google account to take all your customizations with you when you access Google News from any device—phone, tablet, or desktop

We’re rolling out the app to all compatible Android devices and locations globally over the next few days, so stay tuned. We want as many users as possible to get a high quality Google News experience and look forward to launching on other platforms soon.
