  • AI-powered Google News app now available on iOS App Store

Standalone Google Newsstand is now being removed for iOS users, making it part of the new and revamped Google News app.

Google announced new changes coming to Google News at its recent I/O developer conference, noting the new app would come with a brand new redesign, for an improved reading experience.

This content is restricted to site members. Along with the redesign, the updated Google News app now gives users news based on Google's AI and machine learning algorithms. 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. Along with the five stories, the app also features algorithmically chosen articles and local news stories.

In the app, the "For You" tab houses a rundown of stories that Google thinks you'll be interested in.

The next section of the app is titled "Headlines" that will provide the latest news in multiple categories like business, U.S, global, technology, entertainment, science, sports and health segments. 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. The ' Favorites' section gives the starring news topics.

Lastly, there's Newsstand, this is a section where a user can subscribe to other media publications on a monthly or yearly based subscription. The effort is also to make it more supportive of media publications. The personalized section "For You" becomes better over time as the app learns what preferences individual users have when it comes to viewing news content.
