How to reset your Google Discover feed

Google Discover is a personalized feed on Android devices that displays relevant articles, news, videos, and more based on your interests and activity. Over time, it tailors recommendations to you. However, sometimes Discover can show irrelevant, uninteresting, or duplicate content. Luckily, resetting your Google Discover feed can help resolve these issues. So let's see each step in detail.

How to reset your Google Discover feed

1. Open the Settings application on your Android phone. The Settings app is typically located on your home screen or in your list of applications. Tap the icon to launch the Settings menu.

2. In the Settings menu, scroll down until you see an option called "Apps". This option allows you to manage the applications installed on your device. Tap on the "Apps" option to open the application manager.

3. Once in the App Manager, look at the top right corner of the screen and you should see 3 vertical dots representing more options. Tap on these 3 dots to open a drop-down menu.


4. In the drop-down menu that opens, tap on the option called "Reset app preferences." This will reset any customized app preferences you have set.

5. A confirmation message will appear asking if you want to proceed with resetting app preferences. Tap on the "Reset" button to confirm. This will reset preferences for all applications installed on your device.


6. Finally, you need to restart your Android device for the reset to fully take effect. To restart, press and hold the power button located on the side of your phone until the power off options appear. Tap on "Restart" to reboot your phone. Allow your phone to completely restart. Once it has restarted, any reset app preferences should now be applied.

7. After restarting, your Discover feed may take some time before reflecting changes. You likely need to exit Discover and reopen it to see results. Content and order of stories will shift in your feed now that your past activity and interests are no longer influencing results. Reset preferences periodically to keep suggestions relevant.

Why Resetting Can Help

Resetting app data allows Google Discover to rebuild your preferences from scratch. This clears any old, irrelevant interests or glitched settings that may be causing problems.

It gives Discover a fresh start at serving relevant suggestions based on recent activity rather than outdated information. Periodically resetting keeps recommendations optimized.


Resetting app preferences is an easy way to troubleshoot issues with duplicate, missing, or irrelevant content in Google Discover. Just dive into the Google app settings and tap reset. Give Discover time to update based on your latest interests for optimal recommendations.
