In fact, using the app, you can actually tell the app if you are not interested in a certain story by tapping the three-dot icon in the bottom-right corner of the story’s thumbnail.
Google said this is the same process to be followed if you want to tell the app that you want more of a particular story topic. And if you want to read more an in-depth stories, the multicolored Full Coverage button would open a new page broken into different categories: Top coverage, videos, From Twitter, Opinion and All Coverage.
