The new offering called "Google Feed," displays information not only based on your interactions with Google, but also factor in what’s trending in your area and around the world.

Google recently announced a new feed experience in the Google app, to make it easier to discover, explore and stay connected to what matters to you.

The new offering called "Google Feed," displays information not only based on your interactions with Google, but also factor in what’s trending in your area and around the world.

The new feed is useful for people who are less social but want one place to stay in the know about exactly what matters to you.do not like to

But, Google is having a little trouble with rolling it out on devices that run the company’s very own Android mobile operating system.

The feed on Android works as a part of Google app and is accessed by swiping right, but the swipe is not able to load to feed on many devices.

“The rollout to devices where the feed is launched from the home screen will take slightly longer due to technical aspects of the deep integration to the system.,” The Verge quoted a Google spokesperson as saying, which clearly means devices where a right swipe is needed.

And since, on iPhones, the Google app is accessed by clicking its icon, no swipe needed, thus Feed functions smoothly.

What’s ironic is that a feature coming from Google is easy to access on a competitor’s devices than Google’s own phones.

The new feed experience is available in the Google app for Android (including the Pixel Launcher) and iOS, available in the US currently and will be rolled out to other countries in the next couple of weeks.
