Looking for a quick look at the day’s forecast and stories had never been a problem turning to Google’s news and weather app, but apparently there was room for improvement on the app. According to Google News’ Anand Paka, users routinely hit the bottom of the app’s home page wanting more. So they’re getting more.

Google has announced that more than 200 news stories will be added to the bottom of the daily summary as a new, plainly named section: More Headlines.

It’s exactly what it sounds like, after users pan past the normal cards featuring weather and the days biggest news, the app will load extra content from the business, entertainment, sports and tech sectors. The list grows larger the longer the user scrolls, and promises fast-loading, high quality content sourced from Google News’ ranking system. The feature is rolling out to all devices over the next few days. That should keep the news junkies satisfied.
