Browsing and searching mobile and tablet news

Like the desktop version, Google News for mobile and tablet devices gathers the latest news articles and organises each story by topic. The mobile and tablet versions make it easy to browse Google News wherever you are: whether you're checking the news on your phone whilst on the go or reading articles on your tablet whilst on your sofa at home.

Below are some tips to help you navigate Google News on your mobile or tablet device:

Nexus and iPad tablets

If you are using a Nexus or an iPad tablet, visiting Google News will automatically take you to the tablet view of the Google News front page (Note: In editions where the tablet view is not yet available, the classic version will be shown).

To navigate between news sections:

  • Swipe horizontally on the front page to browse other sections. Alternatively, you can tap on a section title in the top horizontal navigation bar to navigate to this section directly.

To explore more headlines for a story:

  • Tap on Explore in depth underneath the article of your choice. An in-depth page with more articles will appear; if available, relevant videos, photos and a story timeline may be displayed as well. If you're signed in to Google+, you may also see recent relevant posts from the Google+ community.

To navigate between stories:

  • Swipe the in-depth article page horizontally to browse other stories. Alternatively, you can tap on a dot in the top horizontal navigation bar to jump directly to that in-depth story page. To navigate back to the section page, tap on the section title in the navigation bar or hit the back button in your browser (or on Android devices, on your device).

To read the full article page:

  • Tap on an article in Google News and your browser will open a new tab on the site of the publication you'd like to read. Google News will remain open on the original tab; you can toggle back to this tab to continue browsing and exploring the news.

Android, iPhone and Palm Pre phones

If you are using an Android, iPhone or Palm Pre device, visiting Google News will automatically take you to the Mobile view of the Google News front page.

To browse the many different sections available on the front page:

  • You can either scroll up and down or tap on the Jump to button to display a full menu of the sections available for viewing. Selecting one of the sections from the menu will cause your browser to jump down to that section on the front page.

To view multiple headlines for a story:

  • Tap on More sources underneath the article of your choice. A few other article links will appear, along with a green link to all related news articles. Tapping on the green All [a number] news articles will take you to the Full coverage page. Here, you can view the latest and most comprehensive developments for each story. To return to the front page, tap the Front page button.

To search for a topic of interest:

  • At any time in your browsing experience, you can enter a search term in the search bar at the top of the page or tap on the magnifying glass icon.

To navigate to an article page:

  • You can simply tap on an article in Google News and your browser will take you to the site of the publication that you'd like to read.

Other phones and mobile devices

If you are using other phones and mobile devices, Mobile View displays sources that are designed specifically for mobile web browsers. You can see more top stories and more stories from your favourite section by clicking on the All links. To view the top stories from all sections on your Google News homepage, click Expand sections. To collapse the sections, click Collapse sections.

To enter a search query, type your query in the text box and click the "Search" button. Since keypads and buttons may vary between devices, you may want to consult your owner's manual to learn more about your device.
