Microsoft News on Android Gets a Redesign and AI-Driven Features

Microsoft relaunches its news app to take on Google and Apple’s offerings

Microsoft fights Apple News with its latest iOS app

Microsoft is launching new apps for Android and iOS to accompany the new brand, too. The Microsoft News app contains different sections like My News, Top Stories, Technology, Opinion, and more. Microsoft says that its AI scans Microsoft's AI scans more than 100,000 pieces of content each day, and has over 800 human editors across the globe to select the top stories that its app will surface on your device.

Under the hood, however, Microsoft News represents the company's efforts in consolidating its various tools and services aimed at promulgating, aggregating and curating news.

Even though having a news app may not be core to Microsoft's business, the company is proud to work with "more than a thousand premium publishers and more than 3,000 brands in all major global markets", which all get a share of Microsoft's ad revenue.

George was also christened at the Chapel Royal, but Charlotte was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. The Queen is head of the Church of England and Louis' father William will one day take on this role when he becomes king.


The Microsoft News app recommends content using a new engine that's also at the heart of MSN.com and the News app in Windows 10.

As mentioned, the rebranded and redesigned Microsoft News Android and iOS apps are available for free download, and you can head to the App Store or Google Play to install it on your phone.

And now there's Microsoft News on the web but also on iPhone and Android. The app is a total overhaul of the old MSN app, and puts Microsoft in direct competition with Apple News and the AI-infused Google News, which launched last month. Sources include USA Today, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, and many more. If you have used the MSN News apps before, the experience will feel incredibly similar. "In just the past four years we've delivered more than $600 million back to our publishers, enabling them to focus on what they do best: quality journalism", Bennett said.
