How to personalize Google Discover Feed on Android

Google Discover Feed on your Android phone or tablet will help you find interesting news, sports scores and other content without having to search for it. Discover is based on learning your interests in displaying relevant information. We will show you exactly how to personalize it.

Where is the Google Discover Feed?

The Google Discover feed is just a tab in the Google mobile app. Some Android launchers (especially Pixel Launcher) include a special window on your left home screen for Discover feed. You can also quickly access the feed via the Google widget.

Personalize your interests

First, go to the "Google Discover" tab in the Google app on your Android device.

Discover shows the weather forecast for your location at the top of the screen. Below this you will find all the content that Google thinks you will be interested in. This content is based on what you say explicitly on Google and some assumptions based on activity on the web.

The first way you can personalize your feed is to act on the cards that appear. Each card has a "Control" icon and a menu icon with three dots in the lower right corner.

The menu with three dots will give you more information about the card. In this case, we can see the theme is "Disney +". From here, you can "Follow" the topic, hide it story, to say that you are "Not Interested", to exclude its source content (from the website from which it came) or do "Manage Interests".

If you click on the "Control" icon you will be able to choose to see "More" or "Less" from the theme in the feed. Tap this icon again at any time to reset it preference you.

Keep scrolling and you will probably see the "Discover More" section. This is another way to personalize them interests you in the feed. Click on one of the themes to expand it.

You will receive a preview of some of the stories you will see on the topic. Click "Follow" to add the topic to your interests.

The other way you can manage your interests is at a more detailed level. Click the three-dot menu icon on a card and select "Manage Interests".

Then select "Your Interests".

If you have previously watched some topics, you will see them at the top of the page. Below, you will see topics edited by Google "Based On Your Activity". These are the topics that Google thinks you might be interested in.

Press the “+” icon to follow the theme or tap icon of deletion to hide it.

It should be noted that you do not need to read the entire list. It is likely to be quite large and full of some very random topics. Some of the themes will never appear in the Discover feed.
