The new AI-powered Google News app is now available for iOS

The new AI-powered Google News app is now available for iOS

On opening the app, the users will find a "For You" section that has been created to provide the top five news of the moment followed by a tailor-made section that will provide longer news articles. Here, the user can mark out preferred topics, news or location-based information.

Google launched its News app on the iOS app store to replace the older Play Newsstand app.

Apart from the redesign, the Google News app is now categorised into four new sections.

Under the "Headlines" tab, it shows more news stories from across Canada, the world and other categories like business and technology. In doing so, the app "learns" what you like and makes adjustments to your content. Selecting a story means the user is greeted with a range of stories, videos and other content as well as a useful timeline of events.

India's tour of Australia, which will begin on November 21 and end on January 18, features three T20Is, four Tests and three ODIs.

"Favourites" is a way for users to customise Google News without the use of AI. A useful option allows you to save your searches and stories for later. Newsstand provides Just subscribe to a book and see its most recent articles in Google's mobile-optimized AMP standard.

As part of that, another feature coming soon is "Subscribe with Google, which lets publications offer subscription-based content". With this new addition to the app, users can subscribe to media organizations who either offer a monthly subscription for web/print access or charge a monthly fee to bypass a web paywall. The new AI-powered Google News app that was featured last week at the Google I/O conference is now available for iOS. This will lead to a better selection of content as time goes by. "At its core, this technology lets us synthesise information and put it together in a way that helps you make sense of what's happening, and what the impact or reaction has been".

The new Google News on iOS is technically same as the users get on their Android platforms.
