Google has updated its News & Weather app to version 2.0 after several years when it was believed to be abandoned. The major update brings new design that now has white everywhere, instead of black. It now shows Google Now-style cards for weather information and news. It also introduces resizable homescreen widgets in 4×1 and 2×3 options. The large widget includes five-day forecast and a scrolling list of news stories.
The app has spotlight section, offers location-dependent stories, new swipe gestures to read news, navigation pane that slides in from the left and Daydream for news stories. You can also change country from the settings. This app is available for select Android devices running Android 4.0 and later, Nexus and Google Play Edition devices.
