Google merged in the last weeks Google News & Weather and Google Play Newsstand into a single product called Google News. According to Google, people who had Play Newsstand will automatically get the new app. People who used News & Weather can download the new app.
The new Google News brings together Google Play Newsstand and Google News & Weather into a single experience, and includes the saved topics and existing magazine and news subscriptions on the ‘Favorites’ tab. Users do not need to follow or subscribe to them again.
Google says the new Google News app also includes a ‘Headlines’ tab that shows an unpersonalized view of the top stories of the day.
