It works as you'd imagine, letting you mark out preferred topics, news sources and locations to filter your reads.

Google has rolled out the latest version of its Google News app with AI support for Android and iOS users and is now available in 127 countries.

Standalone Google Newsstand is now being removed for iOS users, making it part of the new and revamped Google News app. Along with the redesign, the updated Google News app now gives users news based on Google's AI and machine learning algorithms.

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

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.

The new app features four sections which include news content chronologically, breaking news, local news, and stories. The first one is "For You" which offers a personalized list of top five stories that Google think you will be interested in reading, along with other local news stories.

The Newsstand section is a new addition to the Google News app. The AI element is created to learn from what you read to help serve you a better selection of content over time, while the app is presented with a clear and clean layout. It now looks a little sparse without specific magazine titles, but we expect that'll come soon. This can be broken down into sections, as you'd expect from a traditional news site, from "United Kingdom" and "World" to "Business", "Technology" etc. "Full Coverage", as you would expect, digs deeper to information events, displaying Tales from a number of resources (even though you can not set preferences for all these), in addition to timelines for ongoing troubles.

The last tab is called Newsstand where you can subscribe to popular magazines. After subscribing, opening the individual media publications opens up the respective media house' specific category system. The new version of the news app with AI support was earlier teased at the recently concluded Google I/O 2018 event. You can also subscribe to a publication to view the latest coverage in mobile-friendly AMP standard.
