It may have taken Google ages to bring Android's News and Weather app into the modern era, but it's seemingly bent on making up for lost time. The company has posted a new version of News and Weather with some fresh features that you're genuinely likely to use. To start, you can now search the news, including newly curated stories. You'll also get easy-to-understand (not to mention prettier) weather forecast charts, and there's an optional dark theme that should be easier on your eyes at night. The refresh is hitting devices now, so check for an update if Android's official news app is part of your daily routine.
