    Pros: 

    Feels amazing to use, great news algorithm, ability to follow specific sources and stories

    Cons: 

    Optimized for more general news use, but no complaints so far

    The UX is just a joy to use. I've been using this for a week now, and it's gotten me back into reading the news every day. My news consumption went from 0 to checking 2-5x/day.

    As I'm already hitting the reading limit for my favorite sources in 1 week, I can see myself actually paying for NYT.

    A few features that I adore:

    • Headlines shows you the top current headlines

    • You can swipe between different sources and see quotes from them

    • A US-based news app that let's you view World news easily?! 👏🏼

    • For You shows you stories that the algorithm thinks you'll like

    • Supports the publisher's reading cap rules (ex. NYT's 5 free articles)

    Nick Nish has used this product for one week.

    Pros: 

    Slick, Seems relevant

    Cons: 

    It's no SIP :D

    Curious if this is another example of group think... If it's looking at what my friends do and what I typically do then it'll reinforce that behaviour and I won't learn anything new or have a chance to thin outside of my own sphere of influence. So that's what I question about these types of things - even though I like them (because I'm designed to)

    Duane Wilson✌️ has used this product for one day.

The app looks fresh. I'm curious what news sites or apps people use today. 🤔 Plug: We're experimenting with our own take on tech news with Sip, which will soon be available on the web and more community-driven.

@rrhoover Rely on The Times and The Guardian apps to get accurate news, Twitter for more live content. Started using News after watching io18, seems good.

Hey Guys, just wanted to ask. The promo shows the content related to US market only. But what is the situation for India or south asian countries ? Would we be witnessing top sources in the application of our respective regions?

@vsvivek93 I think it will work on Indian sources as well or they might introduce sooner or later. I recently launched a news site similar to Google news https://wideversion.com/ just in case you are interested.

@vsvivek93 I am sure Google India team is on top of this, especially with the Indian news media collaborations.

Do we know if news.google.com is going to be updated to fully reflect the design of the new app?
