Google Play Reviews

  1. Joey Dixon-avatar

    This is probably the best news app I've seen yet. It has so much available content I could still be here reading today's news when next Wednesdays' paper comes out, lol. It's really a great paper with about every topic available you could think of and let's you customize it to your liking. Just a great overall app.

  2. Gary Thompson-avatar

    app Used to work v. nicely (loaded article lists quickly - literally in a couple of secs). Latest update (20.105.01) as bad as previous updates. New icon. Same old @#$% 🤦‍♂️ Hasn't worked properly since 19.331.06. Successfully loads "my news" ONCE but takes 10+ sec. App sometimes takes so long on the Microsoft title screen that Android reports app unresponsive. I've tried signing out and wiping app data etc. Rolling back to v19.331.06 restores original performance.

  3. Jim C Hamil-avatar

    aktie Can't Control Sources like Google News. Let's face it, we all have our favorite sources and also sources we don't want to see. Microsoft News won't let you set those preferences. Desktop version has the option, but it won't save your choices...so it really doesn't have the option. Google News let's one set source preferences easily.

  4. Cho07 SG-avatar

    es ist ein fehler aufgetreten 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.

  5. Aftaab Gulam-avatar

    letter Switched from Flipboard as their login system is messed up and they don't resolve the issue or even acknowledge a problem. Seems to be less ads on MS News and access to publications that usually have a pay wall. What i would like to see is a way to mute certain sources like Fox and to be able to fine tune what i do and don't see on a more granular level than just the broad categories available. Layout is decent and way more consistent than Flipboard. So far so good 👍

  6. ARJUN SHARMA-avatar

    room I generally don't give reviews but this one I really thought should give as its necessary for you guys and Microsoft obviously. News content is pretty awesome, they have lots of topics for you to get news on so you don't keep watching similar news daily. But the biggest fault is of widget, I mean I am still trying to figure out may be Microsoft has just putted widget on trial basis, it really sucks and very bad, fonts, content I mean everything. So if you guys like widget then don't go for this

  7. Satyric Abyss-avatar

    feed This app is actually great since it provides news in a very compact format. My problem with this app is the loading time. I'm a developer myself and I know how to setup my device, yet this app takes 3 minutes to load from a push notification into the given message... That just feels terrible...

  8. Mark P-avatar

    bar Newly added pain: subtitle to images cannot be hidden?!? Image zooming is a disaster: it doesn't zoom or in small jiggery steps. Videos play poorly, they often stop half way while the sound continues. Hidden sponsored articles are annoying. Generally a little sluggish.

  9. Murthy DS-avatar

    deaktivieren Outdated news! The app does not show the latest news. It keeps showing outdated news that is sometimes a week or more old. There are many other problems that I dont want to list. The layout is good. But what is the use when the content is useless?

    funktioniert nicht Installed a minute back it seems good I want to comment on just one thing at this moment. Please add a system default mode along with Light, Dark modes so that it will change automatically based on time (Day/Night). And please make good looking dark colour instead of pure black colour for night mode. Will change rating as I use the app.

    2020-04-30T17:24:59.664Z

    1. Microsoft News tends to be negatively slanted towards the Trump administration. 2. LGBT news definitely gets highlighted way to often compared to other heterosexual news. 3. Instead of being neutral the world liberal agenda gets promoted very openly in this news app. 4. Google news covers tech, science, finance and sports news more balanced. 5. Microsoft news is obsessed with the Harry and Megan road show. 6. The above are also relevant to Microsoft Edge browser news coverage.

  12. Birant Altinel-avatar

    Completely unresponsive after switching back from another app and I have to clear its cache before starting it up again. Even if it's responsive, it takes too long to load the news.

  13. Hung Chu-avatar

    would love to have the option of including or excluding 3 news outlets as some sources has a limitation on retrieval. But recently, I am able to view some subscription news service without a subscription. GREAT!!

    Home page take too much time to load on android. Sometimes even it does not load. Please fix this. Moreover, app is not well smooth and responsive. Please take a look onto it. Rating will updated if these issues are fixed.

  15. Matt W-avatar

    Content and variety is great. But the app is very slow to load an article once you select one. Also seems to freeze a lot where scrolling stops working and eventually the app crashes.

  16. jUSTIN nOPE-avatar

    The headlines that appear in the "top story" notifications on my phone do not correspond with the stories that appear in any of the sections when I open the app. There is also a lot of gossipy trash mixed in with few ways of opting out.

    Probably one of the best news apps. Although, as a brazilliian, It's quite clear the app tends to show news that favor favor a particular political agenda. Provavelmente um dos melhores aplicativos de notícias... Porém fica claro que tendem a mostrar mais notícias com viés político de esquerda.

  18. Elijah Abanto-avatar

    Easy to use and opens fast. What I will really appreciate is you increase your number of news sources, whether national or world news.

  19. Bill Ingersoll-avatar

    Good but too many "Ad" and"Sponsored" articles mixed in with actual articles. Very frustrating when not realizing and clicking on them to read. And there are a lot. Else good selection of news and topics.

  20. Thomas Carline-avatar

    Quite good app. I used to use the biased BBC, but there was too much opinion by their journalists. I just needed the facts and this app gives it.

  21. Glen Cross-avatar

    businessinsider com au articles has wrecked the news feed. It is just spam garbage unrelated to selected topics. Microsoft Launcher feed is flooded with spam articles from Business Insider Australia (American!). There are other free sources in Australia like sbs com au & news com au that should be added.

  22. DeVanté Shay-avatar

    I love this app for I've been with Microsoft for along time for many years. Also they provide great details about what is going on especially in the midst of Covid 19.

  23. Sam Einfeld-avatar

    As an avid news reader and long time user of Android news apps, I can def recommend this one as a good one for its simple to access of access, well presented access to current news sources.

  24. Rahat Shaikh-avatar

    Love this news app, its as good as Google News and the great advantage is that it takes 90% less space on a device.

    When i search location wise news, I can't find Bangaladesh, though its a country. But when I search the as Dhaka, which is capital of Bangaladesh, it shows BI IN. That means software consider it inside India. Also, in edition section, Bangla comes under India whereas Bangla is the mother tongue of Bangaladesh which is used in India in only a region. This is very much pitiful how a company like Microsoft make this kind of mistake? We strongly protest it. Please solve this issue.

  27. CAM CAM-avatar

    Good, clean format news app. Not this app's fault but am tired of news outlets who push paid subscriptions and then cut one off after a few views per month. They should not be permitted to "feed" if they ban non-subscribers from read.

  28. VISHNU SAGAR-avatar

    It's a good app. Showing news from all around. Add a section for current affairs and general knowledge.

  29. John L. Mooney-avatar

    I love the options this gives you. I like the compact mode that I used to see in the older, now defunct Google News app that Google replaced. The news I read here gets straight to the point, leaving out all of the nonsense. I like that. You are given a veriety of subjects to choose from for your news preferences. The ability to choose between light and dark mode is a nice touch. I like this alot better than the Smart News app which I uninstalled. Microsoft's News so much better!

    A lot better than most other news apps I've tried. And content isn't biased as most major news outfit are.

  32. Zabih Jan-avatar

    Best news app in Google play. After the loss of pulse news reader i tried 1000s of news app and none is still as comparable. 4 star is because it is not ad free

  33. Lui Prima-avatar

    Overall good app, but needs a way to personalize actual articles that are in your feed. Like Google news app.

  34. Wilson Caba-avatar

    Excellent app! Does what it's supposed to do: gives me the news, a couple of formatting options, and doesn't crash!

  35. DONESONZ-avatar

    Fantastic news app! I really like the gloss black dark mode too. I would however change the logo to something more eye catching and more large pics versus small ones..

  36. Kim B-avatar

    Easy access, ability to customize, current and up to date highlights. Notifications alert keeps me current on latest headlines.

  37. Ma Ba-avatar

    Still believe articles should be shorter...other than that the apps is a very good and reliable source of news.

  38. Arvind Kumar-avatar

    Ads are so high, doesn't let users to choose, which media they want to follow and which they don't ......below average, lag in smoothness 👎

  39. Eric Tang-avatar

    Font is too small! Have the option to adjust the font size!!!

  40. Marian Parker-avatar

    Update 3/30/31 Have reinstalled, as the current graphics and layout work well for me, and I trust the content more than on other sites. Have learned to avoid any "Sponsored" segment, as it's just an annoying avalanche of ads. No content is worth that!!! This was my go-to news source since I got my first smartphone, but I recently uninstalled it. My eyes just don't enjoy reading small white print on a stark black background. What were they thinking??

  41. Big Stevey P-avatar

    Been ysing MSN since the 90's. Still have a butchers now & again but also use other news apps as well. Its good but there are better.

  42. John Linstrum-avatar

    Ads not intrusive, high quality content, no paywall. Just about perfect.

  43. Jay Hardy-avatar

    In the last few months, especially since the epidemic, the large majority of the photos in the news have nothing to do with the stories - some photos repeated over and over, some cropped from larger images at odd angles, either that or totally wrong. Wierd! Tried reinstall, but no change. Are there no editors left?

  44. Stephen Austin-avatar

    Pretty good aggrigate of mainstream sources so you can check out what they have to say. Lots of times articles that would be subscription are free. The adds are deceptively hidden as sponsored content sprinkled in with the real content, but honestly(small print honestly) labled as such. No flashing adds is great. All in all what you'd expect from a top teir software company.

  45. Joseph Kallok-avatar

    Always doing a great presentation of the news, design brings out the best of the top news of the day. Keep up the good work. The words of the day during these hard days in our nation, stay safe during the attack of the coronavirus.

  46. Steven Coogan-avatar

    Good app. Lots of good news sources grouped together in one place.

  47. Qwert Yuiop-avatar

    Biased opinion pieces prioritised. Lack of balance. Pretty poor. Ads are frustrating.

  48. Pamela Owens-avatar

    I have issues with the app, it will not open news stories from the main application page.

  49. Matt Wyen-avatar

    Updated review on 4/15/2020 After note 10+ AT&T OTA update and app update today it seems to be working fine for the first time Great app so far

    Far better than other news feeds I get. Fast access to articles. Good choices in what to feature.

    One of the best news apps I've ever used. Good trending news updates and dark mode support makes it easy more awesome as compared to the rest.

  53. Marcus Coles-avatar

    I use it for a quick news source it replaced the old Google News & Weather for me. No

  54. Ovadia Haviv-avatar

    The news presented here are mostly one side story, with a lot of left wing opinion from the fake news. It is not for people who want to hear real facts. I gave it a try and I am uninstalling it now.

  55. T H-avatar

    The layout is nice and functional. It keeps recommending that I subscribe to certain topics I'm not interested in, and a majority of the news at the top of my feed is still on these topics that I have not specified an interest in. Google News did a better job of figuring out what I'm interested in, but I think I'm over this algorithmic AI approach to news as a whole

    This is fundamentally a great app with a good spectrum of news sources. However it is funded by ads that are hidden misleadingly among the regular news items. Some are blatant clickbait titles. (Example: "People who retire comfortably avoid these financial mistakes" goes straight to a product pitch.) Others are true articles that open as a web page absolutely smothered with banner ads. I would happily pay a small monthly fee to eliminate this jarring and dishonest user experience.

  58. Tatan Tasori-avatar

    Easy to navigate, simple and most important is you can customized with your own interest.

    Yes this app is good. But lacks regional content at my place. Also it loads news articles slowly. It should be little fast. This app is damn slow. I have to wait almost a minute for the article to load. Its slow even on LTE. Frustrated. Uninstalling. That second star for good content. You deserve it.

    Very pleasant user interface and bugs that I have experienced have since been bashed. Dark mode is my favorite and it is so elegantly incorporated to this app across the platforms it's available on. If you're a Microsoft fan or just looking to detox from the televised news, you have to see the news through this app.

    One of the main sources I use to keep informed about the news. I have seen many people on here complaining about the paid ads. People this is what keeps it free, much like commercials on free TV. If you don't like the ads then find a premium(NOT FREE) news app, also the ads are easily identifiable, contrary to what others are saying. Best of all, it contains information from a lot of unbiased websites but also has a good mix of biased websites as one can compare the content.

    To many repeats of same article. Articles stay for long periods of time. Pretty much garbage.

  63. Rance Airriess-avatar

    The app itself is good , nice layout, good mix of news, dark mode is well done.. BUT the ads are numerous and deceptive! They mimic headlines and are almost indiscernible from a news story except for a tiny "sponsored" tag. It is apparent that Microsoft is resorting to tricking people into clicking ads. Also, Gaming section is trash (FYI disneys Frozen news is not "gaming"). Widget is also trash, doesnt resize properly, doesnt use dark mode, and duplicates headlines. Try again microsoft.

    A million times better than Google's news feed. At least here you have better possibilities to customise your feed and the app actually pays heed to what you ask of it rather than shoving down unwanted articles down your throat no matter how many times you select the Do not show option. Microsoft, you're better than Google here. Well done.

    first impressions after 10 days are surprisingly good enought. using it side by side with google news throughout 24/6.

    Too many ads to scroll through while trying to continue reading a story. Too complicated

    The app ux should be made more smooth. Rest everything is fine.

    Widget will continually loose all news stories and show "No Content Available" even after closing out of the main app.

  71. Rae Miller-avatar

    I enjoy reading the news from this its wrote were almost anyone can enjoy it its delivered in a good manner were it's easy to understand. I recommend it!! Enjoy ♡♡

  72. Bill Bischoff-avatar

    I find this to be an excellent resource in reading the news, a good overview of the various News Services and opnions. The continous selection from quality news services, up to the minute reporting on imprtant topics makes this resource a very important part of my day

  73. Raymond B.-avatar

    Stunning GUI and many custom options. Simply the best news app.

  74. G L-avatar

    Like many other users, the app keeps crashing when an article is selected and is very slow to load. I've tried the beta and the stable versions they both do the same. The app worked fine on my note 10+ but not on my new S20 ultra. Uninstall/reinstalled but no joy!

    I like the layout and options, but individual stories won't load when clicked. The app hangs, the spinner spins, and eventually the system dialog pops up telling me the app isn't responding and I have to force close. Tried reinstalling, same deal. Pixel 3 running March 2020 update of Android 10 (latest as of this review).

    I cannot say much, the newsfeed alerts me of different stories and I select the items that are of interest.

  79. Phil Meredith-avatar

    A decent news aggregator that would get the extra star if it didn't repeat the same stories as often when I'm scrolling

    Best news app in these times. It gives you quality and unbiased journalism from the News Agencies across the globe and it is Ad free and its UI is fluid and smooth to the benchmark. Great! Kudos to the developers and the team behind.

  81. Jason Wissner-avatar

    Very slow and lots of clickbait articles. I would expect something massively better from Microsoft

  82. Soumitra Das-avatar

    Best app ever with little amount of add (negligible). Best app for news.

    The app and news sources are informative and well laid out.

  84. Duc Dang-avatar

    I like the dark theme on/off switch, smaller/larger size font and the gesture way to move the pages back and forth or close it. Good design with options for selecting the favorite topics or searching anything I need to read again on my phone after I read it on my computer MSN news.

  85. Pmc Mcb-avatar

    Actual app will not even open. Downloaded, clkd open, a privacy/sign in page is shown. Goes NO further. No matter what you do. Didn't know you had to sign in for a NEWS app, whose bright idea was that. The same one that f'd up the code that makes the sign in button work? Duuuh🎶... Epic FAIL.

  86. Jos Lewis-avatar

    Very good layout, style and design. Works great for me. I am now using it as my only and continue source for reading News online. Good job Microsoft. Thanks.

  87. Joydip Ghosh-avatar

    It's one of my favourite news application. Wonderful user interface.

  88. lucas cribley-avatar

    Up to date and customizable. Great source of diverse information

    Embedded ads into the text of the article and ruins the speed read function of instapaper. No thanks.

    It would be great if it shows latest news atleast 24hrs before. It's always showing super old news like 2-3 days before news

  91. Justin-avatar

    Best news app I've found! It's literally everything I've been wanting. I keep it in dark mode and compact mode. Wish I could upgrade to get rid of the ads! Either way it's still awesome!

  92. Arnaud Long-avatar

    Very good news selection, but extremely slow to open each article... Crash often, especially when opening from recent app... Google news is working perfectly fine, and my phone is an OnePlus 7 pro...

    I have used many news app and still using them but thing I liked the most is "one-tap search" of word. This helps to get meanings of new words. This feature can be seen on crome browser.

  94. George Miller-avatar

    Best news site. Never pull up an article that says I need a subscription

  95. Graham Kay-avatar

    very good app ... just sometimes I would like a bit more .. i read to much lol

  96. Robert Mendes-avatar

    Lost ability to access personalized news. No option for help. TRASH.

  97. Simon Roberts-avatar

    It gives a fairly diverse spread of news from around the world but where is the option to choose your sources? Frustrated by it still offering me stories from publications I have never and would never click on. Some of the categories such as columnists are simply not updated.

  98. Kevin Miller-avatar

    Great app, love how it syncs with my P.C and other devices 👍🏻

  99. Brian D-avatar

    I wish I could filter out certain sources but other than that, good app.

    Really good news app I like how you can pick and choose what you get
