We need a way to disable AMP! 2 Recommended Answers 5 Replies 1 Upvote

I use the Google News app daily; I love its breadth of coverage and I love that it shows me articles on topics that I'm especially interested in.

However, AMP has to go! Many articles don't render correctly, and some that do are shown in a sans-serif font which is uncomfortable for extended reading, and worst of all, when viewing articles within the app, I get frequent crashes. Sometimes the crash brings me back to the main page of the app, where I have to click on the article again, and sometimes the entire app crashes and restarts from the top, which means that I have to scroll down to find the article in my feed again.

I try to remember to click on "View original web page" for every single article, but then I get lazy and forget to, and boom! I'm punished with another frustrating crash.

I'd say that the second-worst example of poor rendering would be the articles from Bloomberg, in which there is always an extraneous notification of article updates after each paragraph (see attached image). Here, you can also see the sans-serif font that makes reading tiring on the eyes.

The worst example would be articles where the entire body of the article is missing, and there is no indication of such; I get there and I see only a headline, with no article text and no "click here for more", nothing. I have to remind myself, "aha, gotta view original web page" if I want to see this article at all.

AMP is a failed experiment whose time has passed. Please retire it!

AMP is here to stay; This is a format Google is not going to abandon.
It is  supported by Google across all products;
So the question is far broader than News and applies to all websites;
A better place to post your  feedback is on the webmaster help forum,

Hmm. If that's the case then our only remedy is to have Google News fix its crashing and rendering bugs... do you believe that addressing a different forum would help me with that?

AMP is a code/ programming topic;
We focus on the app from the user side;
The topic should be discussed on a developers forum who are familiar with the code/ format
