Google Currents is a fantastic way of getting bulletins delivered straight to your phone that consist only of the news you want to read. These are then made available for offline access, so you can read them whenever and wherever you want. Setting up new subscriptions is easy as there are plenty of suggestions and, of course, the option to search for whatever content you want. But if you really want to get the app firing on all cylinders on your behalf then it is worth exploring the app settings and ticking the boxes that best suit your situation. We will guide you through the key factors to take into account here. We will also show you how to save stories so that you can read them later at your own convenience, as well as how to delete them once you have had the chance to catch up on your Currents.
Set up Google Currents
1: Go to Settings
While in the Google Currents app, tap on the menu icon in the topright corner of the interface and then choose the Settings option.
2: Hide read articles
Scroll down the list of settings and be sure to activate the option to ‘Hide articles I’ve already read’ to save time and space on your device.
3: Set sync options
It is a good idea to enable Currents to sync over Wi-Fi only, to avoid incurring any additional data roaming charges when you’re out and about.
4: Pin images
You can pin images for offline reading by going back to the main screen and then tapping on Customise under your Feeds list.
