    The new app is horrible. Takes too long to load, news feed repeats the same stories, same stories for days. I struggle to even get the news feed to open. There are times pressing the icon brings up stories that don't open. I go to to Google Chrome page and attempt to get the news there and that doesn't always open or give me the Top News. Is it too much to ask to press an icon and the news feed appears?? It is time for a change!

    app I absolutely hate the latest update. The only good is you FINALLY enlarged the font! It takes forever to load, trying to get from one section to another is close to impossible as is trying to open an article. I eventually give up either going to a different news site on my tablet or bring it up on my phone that still has the old version and works great. Since it's taken years to get a larger font I expect it will be the same to fix all the bugs you've created in this mess of an update.

    aktie Cant load contents when individual articles were clicked on. same problem on both phone and tablet. it's a shame, used to be my favourite news app. 23/4 updates: news article upload is back to smooth and fast again. I wonder if the developer has fixed it, if so good job! I resume my use of this wonderful news app. 16/4/2021 Update: I prefer the previous format. New layout not nice. Also there are a lot of articles been there forever. Also too many click baits articles.

Women's day was two weeks ago 3. I'm a man and thus not interested, even opposed to this. My request: show us the articles we sign up for, but not unsolicited content. Thank you.

    room I was a fan, but... Worst news app ever. Only pushes articles about politics and coronavirus. Doesn't matter what settings you have or how many times you select "show fewer articles like this", the app just doubles down on the content you hate. And apparently, the app only refreshes once a day. This app makes me want newspaper delivery to be thing again bc it sucks that badly.

    feed Functionality is getting lost by the minute. Whatever the preferences are, they are ignored. Old news stories are front and centre most of the time. Some of the articles take you to the website but the dark theme is black on black (see sports Toronto Sun as an example), and are legible only in the default browser. Kitchen sink is the only thing missing from options. I used to enjoy it. A lot. To the point I would have paid for it. Now I'm just passing time while looking for an alternative.

    bar Was great, now it's terrible. Before they recently "improved" the app, I could see multiple articles at one time, like opening a newspaper, and I could quickly scan the page for articles that interested me. Now I'm forced to scan down a single column of their choosing. And yes, I've changed the view format (only 3 options) and all are equally as bad. I'm searching for a replacement.

    deaktivieren The recent upgrade to the format and design of this app has felt a lot cleaner and more useful to me. Being able to give feedback on which stories to see more and less of are key. I'm still hoping there will be more functionality added to bring it to the same level as Google News.

    While I've used this app for years as it was tailored to my interests, the most recent update ruins a majoe aspect of it for me. I previously had a widget for the app on my screen. Having headlines of various stories allowed me to see the news at a glance. It reminded me of how I used to look at the widgets on my lumia. The newest update removes the widget functionality and replaces it with a search bar for some awful reason. If this isnt addressed soon I'm probably switch to a different app.

    All notifications have been appearing twice for several weeks now. It's annoying and doesn't seem like a priority for them to fix. Also the ads are cancerous clickbate scams and malware. You can choose topics and the sources are good (albeit you can't be that specific), but every 5th link is a sketchy ad that's trying to sell you a fake product or sign you up to a service that's too good to be true. Really low for a company as big as Microsoft.

    Used to be my "go to" news app, but no more. While the new design looks okay on a phone, it's ridiculous on a tablet. Did no one test this? And the story emojis are so stupid. These are news stories! Since when do we vote on the popularity of the news? It is what it is. Is the plan to eventually start eliminating stories because they're not popular? Sorry, I'm done with this app.

    Thought I'd give this news app a go. After only a couple of hours, I'm well impressed. UI looks great (dark mode), easy to navigate and set up my favourite topics. Great news articles from different sites. This app blows the socks off all the other apps I've tried so far. Including one's that charge a subscription! Note to the developer's: Please be careful with updates. It's currently running superb.

    Not a fan of the new UI. The app is no longer just a news app, it's also a weather app, search engine, math solving tool, shopping app, etc. I simply don't understand why Microsoft decided to add all this extra bloat. It's a news app, not a central hub for all my shopping and math problems that I have to solve! I appreciate the effort from the developers. The UI looks good. However, please make this a News app! Not a central place to do everything.

    This used to be a decent news hub. The latest upgrade, however, has made it all but unusable. It freezes and I can't close it. I click refresh and nothing happens. It has been stuck on the same top story for the last five days. It is worthless now. Please recommend a decent replacement. I wish I could give it zero stars, but I cannot rate it less than one star and that is over rating it.

    It used to work perfectly untill recently, when they changed the app totally. After that the app is very buggy. Also has lots of unnecessary white space. Fonts are too big now, dude! I'm not blind here! Also has weird icons as if the app itself is a cellphone screen! And what is up with the up/down voting for the stories? It's not Facebook, this is supposed to be real news. Let ME decide what news is good or bad, crazy! The team who "redesigned" this perfectly functional app should be fired!

Update: 2021/01/01 No longer retrieves articles (just spins) on Moto G7 Supra, Android 10, build QCOS30.95-Q3-10-47-3 after numerous re-installs and restarts. Changing review from 5 to 2 stars.

    Previous Feedback attempt resulted in initial Play refusal. All encountered 3-27-2021. Maybe I will try logging into the MSN app and provide companion feedback given the previous Play app feedback refusal. Note re the actual 'News' as listed on Android GUI several news items appeared earlier dating at least several days prior w/o me being logged into any Microsoft related account. App also flagged as inappropriate prior following past Play feedback refusal issue re this app.

    Keeps on showing news that I explicitly marked as don't show again or show less of them and keeps on sneking in materials from other tabs like celebrity hookup in world news where celebrity news are turned of same goes for sports. Also materials from a year ago showing all the time. These problems continue from when this app was made for widows phones, continues to android and is the same on win 10 where snippets shows on tiles but on click the article is nowhere to b found.

    The app used to be fine. The biggest problem for me is when they updated the app recently the new layout looks ok, but the widget app was changed from a panel that let you scroll thru some recent headlines at a glance TO JUST A SEARCH BAR FOR NEWS... Who goes "oh yes, id like to see some news articles, LET ME SEARCH FOR A SPECIFIC TERM" I used this app because the widget was great on my homescreen for quick news. Now it's basically useless for something like the smart news app...

    UI redesign isn't good. It seems like it has removed the ability to implicitly select my news sources upfront, replacing that with an algorithm based on my individual likes and dislikes of stories. I can mark individual sources one at a time, but why are you making me start all over from zero?! I've already been using the app for years had it set the way I liked and you obliterated my settings with the redesign!

Many sections added. unlike old app which is more professional n where entertainment, cricket, sports news are less on homepage this page has more of it on main page,which is not of any use. Overall the app is superb. Wish the selection of articles should be like old version and should copy less of Gnews or Jnews, or etc.,

    MS destroyed its own app. The font size adjustment feature is gone. The light and dark mode can't be toggled within an article anymore. I have to dig into the settings, which is vexing. The likes/emojis are so juvenile. Trying to emulate Facebook only makes the news articles look CHEAP. Very distracting and off putting. The Home section is USELESS. Why give us a BROWSER we never asked for? It now takes an extra tap just to access the News section. Uninstalled and switched to AP News.

    This was a great app that had a great layout and presented a good amount of information without having to scroll. Now, you can only get 3 headlines before scrolling, FONT IS TOO BIG, and navigation is a chore due to how little information is presented on the screen at a time.

    The update killed the app. There is now a feature to react to articles with emojies. This adds to other feature to give you news you like. This is how Twitter works; this is not how news works. This is great to create a sense of community but with news articles this can only lead to alienation. You don't want your news app to alienate you. I used to prefer the Microsoft App over Google News because it offered the news objectively. Not anymore.

    Well I just opened this app to find it has been updated. I was feeling optimistic that an update would make a good app even better. Imagine my surprise when I find an atrocious pile of chaos in front of me. Articles almost have a cartoonish feel, their content doesn't load, and side bars seem to be jumbled up with the article, making it even more work to sus out where the story breaks between advertising. I guess a few college interns who have no clue about good UX design made this.

    Latest major update is a total mess. The actual "news" part is hidden inside one section while other non-news functionality is cluttering up the app. It is now literally the Bing app disguised as a news app with non-sense emoji reactions. They even removed the news widget and replaced it with a search bar widget. This app used to be great, how sad they needed to force Bing with this trojan horse app.

    I loaded and use the app. However, EVERYTIME I have opened the internet since installing the app a popup opens for me to load the app. It is annoying enough to not want to use it. I'm stuck...whether or not I install it, I get the annoying popup. I tried opting out..nope. What a pain.

    Just as with a computer, this app, will give you access to more news article's, than almost any other news app. If you want, you can save almost any news article. this is one of my most Loved news app's, whether i am using a computer, or my phone!!

    Bundling on News and Weathet alonevis GREAT. You cannot touch using the Weather Channel without having it accidentally subscribe you to premium services and they try to show premium services that are paid down your throat every time you use the app. At least with MSN News you get the news you get the weather and nobody trying to sell you something.

    The app is an all rounder news app with all the essential boxes checked. Y E T, and I'm really pissed about this and I'd like a dev to read this, I find unacceptable that the app notifies me about news from sources I'VE HIDDEN. Even more, I've checked, unhide and hide again, and yet this still gives notifications about media I'm not only do not want to consume, but the idea of reading just de tittle already disgust me. Please, fix this ENOURMOUS issue.

    Whoever is now in charge of this app ruined it. This now feels more like Facebook and social media instead of a news app with all these useless additions like the react buttons and comments from the new update. And so many bloat features have been added too like the Games, Calculator, Images, Weather, etc. All these bloat made the app slower too. Disappointing.

    I am sick and tired by the endless torrent of solely left wing news sources. Huff Post, the Guardian and the Independent are the only ones that get promoted. Most articles are not even news but opinion pieces written by campaigning "journalists". Pro immigration, anti tory, social marxist propaganda. Just how stupid do you think we are? There is no way such stories are selected by algorithm or relelated to my internet history. They are clearly chosen by an irritating millennial with an angenda!

    Link shared was not usable for a news story because it linked to the app rather than the news source.

    This recent update to this app is horrible. It is very unresponsive and then when it does finally respond it takes forever to load a news article.

    Wow. That was a look into the future. Idiocracy in full view. I knew younger groups were degraded in common sense and intelligence. Lack of emotional regulation and pride in this country. You've created a utopia for those mindless superficial puppets. The option not to choose topics and ad laden articles to finance your purchase of the seed banks and farmland to poison our food is...GREAT! You really are a hybrid of monsters.

    Was a great app until updated. Now the new format is terrible. Difficult to pick out updated news. Looking for a new app

    I dislike the new format alot. The old format was more compact. Yes I have tried all 3 format settings.

    I regret I updated to the new app. I just can't get into it at all. Searching for a new news aggregator. And also it eats data like crazy.

    Changing to one star for this garbage. Why have the option to pick topics that interest you and give a thumbs down to this you want to see less of if it just makes no difference at all. Instead I just get endless dancing on Ice stories, reality airheads and the horrendous football stories constantly.

    News sources are good, but adds and promoted "news" articles are almost all just click bait.

    Since the latest update the app freezes constantly and gets stuck while loading articles.
