Google News Feed

Niagara Launcher does not integrate the Google News feed, but you can access it quickly with Niagara Launcher's Google button (Launcher Settings > Features > Google search). It will open the Google app which offers the exact same feed.

Here are the reasons why we decided against integrating Google's news feed:

  • The swipe right gesture is already taken (to access app swipe actions).
  • Google doesn’t want other apps to use it, so you would have to make use of a second app that is not very user friendly.
  • The feed could harm the app’s performance.
  • It would cost time to develop & test it (that applies to a lot of features but should be kept in mind anyway)
  • The Google app has the same feed built in their Google app.
