The app offers news summaries from 65,000 publications, with headlines grouped into categories like 'Technology,' 'Sports,' or 'Fashion,' for example.

Users can also customize the stream of news and weather information based on their section and area of interest.

The Google News & Weather app is new to iOS as well as it was released on the closed-source platform only last fall.

Its version for the Apple Watch offers users the ability to swipe through the top headlines from the watch's small screen. You can browse through the dozen headlines horizontally and scroll down to see an accompanying photo for each story.
