Reviews From google play store

Video playback is hit or miss; I've never been able to play a video without it pausing (presumably to keep attempting to fetch the vid) at least twice (average is 3-4). Occasionally, it will simply stop playing in the middle of the video (that's always a hoot).

Pretty easy to set up and use. The articles have mostly been clear and easy to read. The app seems to get the content from the sites and shows it nearly on the app. It's free, there's a share function, good amount of topics, and dark mode. Biggest issue though, is the sponsored articles. The thumbnail and app layout makes the article look exactly like the rest of the actual news stuff. But the sponsored articles just open your default browser and sends you to a click bait article.

Nice it only loads very slowly, even shining in takes a long time that's why I give 3 stars now only , the widget suddenly stops working does not refresh the news, you have remove the widget from your screen and place it back again then it works again for a few hours.

If I could have gone zero stars I would have. A complete leftist app, you can search and search but will not find one conservative view anywhere. Here's a suggestion call it what is is not Microsoft's News instead put Microsoft's left indoctrination. Finally if you just had one Fox News article I would not have really noticed. What a sad excuse for a news app.

Good but bad. They do have some good news but what concerns me, as normal, it is so far left, it is nearly round the clock. The "opinion" pieces are never right or even centre, they're just Trump is bad, Global Warming is certain, no arguments allowed, Boris Johnson is worse than Jimmy Saville. You get my point? If my review is here for long, I'll be amazed.

Not only way to many adds to go past, but story was segmented in to many, many pages on my phone. Way to had to read. Also many parts (pages) of the story were blank, missing parts of the arrival.

I'm so happy I can use Microsoft in my trivial journey through the social silly networks I have chosen and to look up things in my interest ....and then even tho I pay nothing I can get the better operation of the net when I need serious help in a emergency or health situation ....anything I need for emergencies of any kind !....The software is exactly compatible with the internet and doesn't try to get me steered off in the ditch.

Best GUI of any Android news app that I've tried, but unfortunately still unusable. It needs the ability to hide untrustworthy sources, or maybe just opinion pieces all together. Also tries to disguise advertisements as articles with "sponsered" printed small above the click bait headlines.

The app is very informative! It primarily focuses on my chosen topics. My only suggestion is that the content should be updated. It is frequently presenting topics over a week old or older.

Nice interface and custom options, but I'd like to be able to choose to ignore individual sources, and sponsored links are annoying.

For the time being I am very excited with the news so far. It grves me an option to chose the news items I am interested in. I have been following the news as it breaks. The most interesting aspect is the daily update on Trump's impeachment inquiry.

this app lets you modify it for the information you want. But it shows a lot of old news for weeks and weeks. You cannot sort news articles by date

No matter what time or what I'm involved with at the time, the app interrupts to push anything I've previously looked at (and usually ALREADY bought) to push product.I don't feel like an app user as much as I feel like a target..

I'm enjoying the ease of this app. I find what I want to read easily and its clear, not a jumbled mess.

Microsoft News gives me complete satisfaction of the day providing the complete news locally and international. I don't have to install any other app for the same news.

I enjoy the variety of articles. The number of subjects presented make it my favorite app for casual reading.

Great app,just add the text to speech feature and it'll be perfect.

I've never experience perfection before but Microsoft has that special features on each and every app, game and store microsoft showed me perfection at work.

The news is frequently updates throughout the day and uses a wide variety of sources.

It's great that the content is free, even some of the sources which are behind a paywall

Fonts too small even when set to largest settings for articles. And no size setting for the listing page at all.

OK, I do like the app, but I just can't stand all of the "Clickbate" stories that there are. I like the way the feeds are set up.

Good, but too many ads. I don't know how anyone lives without ad blockers in 2018. I'd really like to remove ads and so-called "promoted posts". I'd pay $15-20 if I could remove it completely. Edit: it feels like even more ads have been added. I purchased another app that is free of ads. A bit clunky, but a lot more modern. Uninstalled this one until there's a better solution.

Occasionally when I tap on a story, it doesn't take me directly to that story. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Recommended by a friend, I was sceptical then hooked. Prefer it over BBC News and Google News for news on hobbies and local area although I still use BBC for big stories.

It's ok the news is there but the app doesn't get updated in some categories like science and technology for days on end . And even though I have the new s9+ I still get the error when loading the app. : JULY 30TH UPDATE - Still using the app for news and sports , better r on breaking news stories. sport ,technology and science still slow on new news stories. 04 Nov 2019 - still using the app for all my news , I like the local news section l

Content updates very infrequently. More than half of the articles are stale old ones.

Great App, love using it but more personalisation is required keeping in view the individual inetersts.

All the time the news reports are opening in Chrome and its feels like a old app interface and also the home screen is way old look.

Tried several news apps before this one all had too many ads and often froze none of which apply here. Enhancements that have taken place have made it even better. 🙂

feels like beta software; needs more polish, better curation and a varied wealth of features

Just Meh, not customizable, slow loading, search buggy. A classic Microsoft product :)

I think it needs to be more customizable, in terms of news sources and subjects just like it's Windows version. My news feed is way more tailored to my interests on my PC, And Google News already knows everything I want to know about because they have our search history. Nevertheless it is a good app, just needs some UI upgrades and what I just mentioned.

Since using the Microsoft News app for the last few weeks. I have found it to be very useful. Up to now, I haven't noticed any bias from Microsoft on any of the news feeds that are delivered to my device. They seem to be impartial and the news has, up to now, been the latest and up to the minute . So I can't complain. If it stays like this, then I shall continue to read it daily.

Good news coverage but startup and load times need to improve give users the option of a text only view of articles to allow for faster load times.

I love Microsoft news on Windows, but I dislike it very much as an Android app. The reason is that it keeps resetting to the top article. I'm working my way down through the articles and it suddenly resets to the top of the list and I have to work my way down again. It's very, very frustrating! I also wish that I could set it to default to top news instead of my news. I don't want my news filtered.

News is ok but would like to get rid of the start up banner that cycles through a bunch of languages I can't read. Don't see the point of it and adds absolutely no value... just slows app startup time. Edit... they got rid of the annoying start up animation. Much better now.

Very fast, pages are formatted for reading well, dark theme!

Easy to view and read. Great app! A must-have. Recommend highly.

I really like this app for all the latest news and the news notifications. Great app.

Very useful. It provides targeted and up to date news.

Great news site - easy to navigate and engaging layout. Nicely balanced

Nice way to stay informed from a good list of news sources. Most content is free, but a few ask for sign-ups or subscription. There is no overt political bias as the sources are from a very wide range and can be customized. I prefer a broad perspective and this app makes it easy to get in one place.

The third news app I find myself satisfied with. The selection is good and the updates real-time.

Overall good app, reliable. Stories about the Kardashians in with Top Stories (eye roll). Once, half the US news were articles about the TV show "This is US". Ads can be hard to distinguish from news. But always finding articles and slideshows worth forwarding or saving. You can search for local news and find what you're looking for easily. You can subscribe to topics that interest you. Satisfying political coverage, good money/business coverage. Good lifestyle/wellness articles. Recommended

Alright, I've tried everything (working within the phone settings, changing Battery Saver definitions to see what impact that could have, changing length/width of the widget) but this bug still persists: I keep getting the random "No content available" message on my home screen widget (even when I'm connected to the Internet, not just when I'm off-line). Notifications are arriving on time and as often as expected (big points here) but I do hope the widget issue is address as soon as possible.

Up to date, easy to read, great categorization.

My go-to app for news. Love the mix of network and print and wire service. Updates timely

This is my first Android phone. I've been a diehard Windows Phone user until this year. I can't create custom categories here (ie. Veterans Service Dogs, Hawthorne CA, Veterans Caregivers, etc.) which was easy with Windows. Also, I can't rearrange the categories' order. And there are identical categories here (ie. World News) that appear as I scroll through; there might be three identical headings, with multiple other headings between them, but with different content. Confusing, inflexible PITA

I like the way the news articles are sorted out, makes it really easy to navigate to your content of interest. The picture stories that offer more information on a news article are also awesome. I have really learnt a lot.

Generally a useful selection of news stories relevant to me.

Occasionally has the same article shown more than once, but elsewise solid for a news feed

This is a decent news app, after testing a few alternatives to Google news, this was my favourite. The widget is poor though; it shows very little information, the same story often seems to get stuck for days, and no 5 icon wide version, so it looks odd on my home screen. So it's losing a star because of the widget.

App is better than Android/Google's on my Google Pixel ...but Microsoft, it's not as good as your News App on my Microsoft Lumia phone...which is brill!!(I keep it going for the news!!)....much, much neater on the Lumia..sections good...It's a too 'in your face' on my Pixel..with adds.mxd in news sections! But thanks!! It's better than BBCs news App as well as Google's!!

Advertisements look exactly like news articles except for the word sponsor. Bad Microsoft.

The selection of news articles is good, focusing on the issues that are the most current. This app provides a bipartisan view of the issues without bias allowing the reader to form their own opinions, which I appreciate . While there are quite a few ads, they are not bothersome.

A good apps. Always improving. Keeping it up with time.

Great app, a pity about the obsession with celebrities instead of focusing on real news more.

i have tried various news aps over past 15 years and choose this one as most favored. i also use fox ap and others just to remain in touch with the extreme right-wing bias. this ap provides best overall coverage and ease of use. especially enjoy the 'dark theme' as opposed to dark outlook on life.

It brings a harvest of top news stories from around the world, easy to share stories of interest, and provide a good presentation.

I want to give 5 stars but,... I love the app except for 1 issue. The news categories I chose will be defaulted when i open the app. Closing/reopening app sonetimes helps, other times I have to log out and in to get my preferences reinstated. Fix this issue and i will rate 5 stars.

I like the darkthem 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.

The only reason stopping me from giving 5 stars is the font size, which goes from tiny to tiniest. There is no large font making it hard to read unless held close. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. Please fix the font size. A good example is WAPO'S.

In looking for broad and deep coverage from top rated.. extensive top rated news reporting organizations..this app draws from many to ensure the broadest sources. Balance on topics can be found again from a variety of top quality news organizations...national and global. The organization of different news types is also exceptional.

Great news resource compilation service. I especially enjoy the syncing with the News app on Windows 10. Great way to curate the news sources you want to read from, although I prefer the Top News tab to keep a more balanced approach. Never have a problem!

Excellent app. Quick and responsive to current news.

Enjoy the App - works great - let's you customize the news feed by subject.

Great myriad of stories anout various topics. Enjoyed new econ data they will provide.

My problem with this app and Microsoft generally is localization. I don't know why it's difficult for you to add local content to this news app, you have an office here in Nigeria, but there's never news from here. Why should I be reading only news from other countries? Please localize this app.

Great app. You get all of the current news from all the reputable news channels such as, the New York Times, AP, Washington Post, Fox news etc. Plus it gives you notifications when their is breaking news. All for free

Reading in a moving screen, is a good experience.

Up to date news from a wide range of sources on a wide range of subjects. My go to site. Thanks.

Always up to date stories & topics. Always news worthy & interesting. Glad I installed the app.

Good news aggregator drawing from multiple sources. Upgrading to 5 stars since synching across platforms is seamless and I like the user interface alot. It's clean and uncluttered. Great job Microsoft!

Good App. I like it because I can tailor what I want to see and what I'm interested in. As with any news app nowadays you have to take some of the articles with a grain of salt and make your on decisions. Overall great!

Well laid out, sponsored links are clearly marked and not overwhelming.

Great app with very good user interface... i am very satisfied... i highly recommend this app to others also

Good but needs option to disable opinion articles. It is misleading mixing opinion articles in with the actual news. Also please put greater focus on the higher quality sources over others like Reuters and Associated Press.

Easy to select topics and then the individual stories.

This is the best news app by far. It has so much news that most of the time you'll never finish reading the articles there are so many. It is constantly updating its news articles. Good going Microsoft!

Reading experience is great with dark mode and structured article

I really appreciate that the news stories directly connected to don't have pay-wall issues, but the two annoying things are the repetition in the list of stories and the sorting order doesn't appear to always be chronological.

The news presented in a liberal/socialist light, like 95% of the media outlets. Tech and science coverage is decent, but sometimes politicized too. Shame on Microsoft for not being able to stay impartial. App's functionality is great.

great app, best headlines & graphics, easy to read

Very informative app. Lots of good content.

The latest Interests updates have become wacky in how my Top News section is now polluted with "news" sites and wonderwall photo click bait type "stories". Hard to find the actual real news from established outlets like WPO WSJ and NYT in this sea of other junk news sites.

The customization levels are nice. However, they stuffed with so much clickbait that it's essentially like the MSN page. I intentionally did not sign up for sports but they found their way to my page regardless because, well, clickbait.

the only app to spread the news as early as possible,aunthentic,correct and descriptive

It is fine but there is no way to copy a word. I think it is important to add copy options for the learners. That's why learners will get the meaning of a word easily and will help them to study better.

Every ball and Cricket score is pushed as notification on my mobile as BREAKING NEWS, even though i have not enabled any cricket news. Request the app developer to take some lessons on what should be categorize as breaking news and what shouldn't. if this continues i will have to uninstall this app.

I just switched from apple and was bummed that I didn't have apple news anymore because I liked fine tuning what I see and read in the morning while I drink my coffee and this is just like it I can pick things that I like or news I want to see you can basically pick anything or any topic to follow and there will be articles on it this app is amazing and I use it every day

Very impressed so far! Love that you can customize and save items easily. Clean interface, decent news sources. Would be great if we could customize which sources in addition to topics.

Best mix of news of any app, well organized into categories. Not a lot of click bait like other news apps. You can customize it to your favorite categories and what news providers you like. I have it on Android and on Windows

Gives me the up to date news .... and not just the Head Lines !!!

Came from a Lumia 950XL. I wish it were as smooth on that device as it is on my new Note.

Great App. Keeps me abreast of all events around the globe on the move.

Compared to other turkish media outlets I found that msn is unbiased. Just what I needed.

Microsoft News is my go to app every morning. Outstanding results each time...

Thanks for fixing the bugs; it is working well!

It's ok but they mix the news with junk. They do label it but they throw in ads and opinions. And when you're searching through headlines you don't always notice that an interesting article is actually junk.
