Personalization for mobile and tablet devices

You can personalize Google News by creating new sections for your favorite topics, mixing and matching existing standard sections from language and regional editions, adding local sections where available, or reorganizing your Google News homepage.

Nexus and iPad tablets

To personalize your Google News experience on Nexus and iPad tablets, swipe to the Personalization section, which is located to the left of the Top Stories section. There, you'll find these options:

  • Add a custom section. Enter the keyword(s) you'd like to use to create your custom section, then click Add section. (For Nexus 10, click the Advanced link to add or create custom sections)

  • Delete a section. Click on the trash can icon next to the section(s) you would like to delete.

  • Adjust a source. If you are signed into your Google Account, you can also adjust sources. To adjust a source, type its name into the text box, click Add, and drag the slider to your desired setting. (Nexus 10 users can only adjust existing sources)

If you don't want to see personalized news, you can:

  • Turn off your personalization settings. To do so, scroll to the bottom of the Personalization section, then click Reset.

Android and iPhone

You can customize your mobile experience by clicking the menu Settings menu at the top right of the page, and selecting Sign in. Once you’re signed in to your Google Account, click the menu again and select Preferences. From here, you can change the size of the story cards and the font size, as well as change the theme from Light to Dark.

You cannot currently change your news personalization settings from your phone, but you can access your saved settings by clicking the menu Settings menu on the top right of the page, and selecting Sign in from the drop-down menu.
