Google rolls out News & Weather iOS app


Google began the rollout of its latest iOS app, News & Weather, Tuesday afternoon in the App Store. The newest in Google’s collection of 43 apps on iOS, News & Weather displays news headlines on a variety of topics and features a detailed weather forecast view for cities of your choice.

News & Weather, which is rolling out in multiple countries, packs quite a large amount of customization in the way of personalized content, and users’ settings appear to sync with their Google account. Until now, this app was only available to owners of Android devices.

News & Weather provides headlines and articles from 65,000 publications and organizes them by categories including Top Stories, Technology, Science, and others. The layout of this information can be customized by country and personal preference, with the option to tap on a headline for articles, opinion stories, and local perspectives.

This release of News & Weather comes shortly after Google updated its Gmail and Chrome iOS apps for iPhone 6 and iOS 8 support.

News & Weather is rolling out in the App Store now and is available as a free download. Depending on your location, you might have to wait a little bit to be able to download this app.
