  • Google's Intelligent 'Google News' App Is Now Available on iPhone and iPad

If you pay for a periodical or publication, such as the Washington Post, you can sign into your account in Google News, so you don't get cut off after 3 articles. Featuring an Artificial Intelligence powered redesign, coupled with the familiar Google interface, this news app is meant to keep up with the news that you care about.

Android version of the app is already out for Google's platform.

The app's first tab, For You, leverages how well Google knows us, and presents stories it thinks we'll want to read. Retiring its much-ignored Newsstand app and service, Google launched its new News app whose selection of stories are largely driven by two things: AI and what data Google has on you. We gave the new app a spin to find out if it has a shot at being the most effective way to read the news. It works as you'd imagine, letting you mark out preferred topics, news sources and locations to filter your reads. Google says its aim with the new design is to make the news easier and less biased.

Google announced the new app at its 2018 IO conference, revealing that it would use machine learning to surface interesting stories from trustworthy publishers. Of course, it will not replace Apple News as some speculated!

Guatemala Opens Embassy in Jerusalem
President Jimmy Morales arrived in Israel on Tuesday to open his country's embassy in Jerusalem . Trump ignored widespread anger and condemnation and pushed ahead with embassy relocation plans.

Yes, in some ways.

Nestled among the big announcements at this year's Google I/O was a potentially game changing Google News app. Unlike Apple News, Google News pulls in tweets about stories, which are often a good way to learn about news as it breaks. Just tap on a story to see everything online in an organized format with a timeline, FAQs, important players, and more. On the day we used the service, a story about a summit between the U.S. and North Korea sat at the top spot (which felt pretty appropriate), but in second place was a local news story about the least punctual bus stops in West London.

Google News is a attractive app and does a great job of intertwining videos, articles, and tweets into one central hub.
