News & Weather

Google rolled out a new update for its News & Weather Android app today that brings a much needed facelift for the aging software. Version 2.0 introduces a new Material Design inspired setup with a card layout akin to what you’d see with Google Now that lets users navigate the app’s menu by swiping through content.

There’s also support for local news and weather for multiple locations, and a new resizable homescreen widget. The 2.3MB app is compatible with devices running Android 4.0 or higher, however it appears to be rolling out gradually, so you may not see your phone or tablet supported right away. However, if you’ve managed to pull down the update, feel free to let us know how it’s treating you.
