    After a long time stuck in the era of Gingerbread design, Google updated its News & Weather app with modern design and put it into the Play Store for anyone to download and use. The app aggregates news from over 65,000 different sources and offers localized information in 60 different languages, along with basic weather reporting for your local area. Google News & Weather offers a homescreen widget as well.

    Though it picked up a new design, Google News & Weather is still a very basic app when compared to the deeply comprehensive offerings from third-party developers — and it even somewhat overlaps with what Google offers in Google Now. Still, it's good that this app, which comes pre-installed on Nexus and Google Play edition devices, is kept up to date and is very functional.
