One of the major highlights of Google’s annual I/O developer conference was AI-powered “Google News” application. The new move has put the Google News in direct line of fire with Apple news app. Google has rightly analyzed the need for every user and features like this will be more handy for prioritizing news topics.
After signing in with your Google account, Google News will pick up your preferences and topics which according to it will be significant for the user. The app works in coordination with artificial intelligence and the personal data of the user.
Google News app update houses different tabs like For You, Headlines, Favorites, and Newsstand. Every tab will have the respective rundown. For instance, in “For You,” Google will display stories of your interest, depending upon your activity and in “Favorites,” one can pick selected topics and Google will come up with the top stories of that particular segment. The "Headlines" and "Newsstand" will offer you to sail through the important headlines of the day and subscribe to the monthly magazine respectively.

With Google News, you’ll see:

Your briefing updates throughout the day bringing you the top five stories you need to know, including local, national, and world content.

Google has jumped into the race with Apple at a very crucial time. A few weeks back, Apple released “Apple News Exclusive” piece to make more room for its news app.
The catch over here is, Google has released the Google News for both iPhone and iPad on the App Store. I don’t know if Google is trying to get an edge over Apple news app down by offering any tempting features and user-friendly app, but one is quite evident, Google is taking Apple news app head-on. Only time will unfold the dominant one in the news app field.
