The AI-powered Google News app replaces Newsstand App for iOS and Android

While the AI-powered Google News was teased at Google's I/O developer conference, the revamped breaking news apps has finally arrived for both Apple’s App Store and the Play Store as Google had promised.

Google News employ machine learning to comb through complex, fast-breaking news stories and deliver them in easy-to-understand formats in chronological timelines and evolving sequence, including: local news aggregation and foreign stories.

There's a "For You" section containing a brief overview of 5 stories that's selected based on your reading preference and interests. And Google News brings AI smarts to learn users preferences, though users can chose what they'd prefer to read by picking from more or less contents on a preset topic.

The other section is tagged as Headlines, with the latest news across different sections, such as: World, Business, and Tech. But you can also use this section to view Google’s Full Coverage section that breaks complex stories into a series of posts from a variety of sources citing social media posts from Twitter and YouTube.

Google News comes as a replacement for the erstwhile Play Newsstand, albeit there's a new Newsstand section in Google News, that lets you subscribe to news organizations either on a monthly subscription for web access or access more than 1,000 magazine titles in a mobile-optimized reading format.

The Newsstand makes it pretty easy to find and follow popular news sources you trust, as well as discover new ones.
