Google replaces its Play Newsstand app on iOS with its reworked AI-powered News app.

To get a detailed idea of what Google News offers, iOS users can check out a replay of the 2018 I/O keynote presentation. The updated app brings an all-new UI that's supposed to give you a faster, smarter briefing on the top news stories going on right now.

The plethora of news sites and media outlets co-existing online can be overwhelming for even the most engaged current affairs readers, but Google hopes its polished new News app will make things easier for users who want to keep up to date with what matters to them. Replacing the neglected Newsstand service from Google, and seen as a direct competitor to the Apple News app, Google News is now available on the App Store... Also, the app will learn from your habits, and serve you with better news selection over time.

The next section - "Headlines" - dives more deeply into the latest news, covering global, U.S., business, technology, entertainment, sports, science and health segments.

"Favourites" is a way for users to customise Google News without the use of AI. The effort is also to make it more supportive of media publications. To sum it up, the developers revisited the original news app and integrated the company's innovative AI-powered technology. News agencies/organisations in this section all support the Google AMP standard, which means the pages will load in quick and clean fashion without bouncing you first through a mobile browser.

Finally, the Newsstand tab lets you see a magazine-like interface for specific publications, such as CNN, Fox News, The New York Times, Reuters, and more. It takes information from a whole bunch of sources to provide you with everything you need to know. There's also a "Full Coverage" mode, which gives you a wide selection of content around a topic like editorial and opinion pieces, tweets, videos and a timeline of events.
