    This would be a pretty nice app if not for the deceptive advertising interspersed with and made to look like news stories. If that's not bad enough, most of the advertisers are obviously very scammy click multipliers. Some of the non-ad sources are extremely clickbaity, as well, and there's no way to filter them out.

    app Terrible accuracy, cannot hide news stories to make it learn what you like, and ads instead of actual news, on top of too many sponsored ads.

    aktie Too many ads meant to look like actual articles. Also, this is Canada, articles that are discussing price should reflect Canadian dollars are be marked as USD. No point to show me articles about great sales that don't exist.

    funktioniert nicht Articles about tv soaps under "architecture", celebrity births under "gardening", trash daytime tv under "documentaries" and non-vegan food and recipes under "vegan". What space isnt being used for ads is filled with articles that have nothing to do with their tags, making my so-called customised news feed increasingly irrelevant and uninteresting.

    App itself is decent, but the 'live' tile widget hasn't updated since June 28th 2020, even after reinstalling everything and clearing cache!! Update 4th September 2020: Finally gave up on this app after several years. Widget just does not work properly and now I use Google News which does. I still prefer the MS interface, but it is currently too problematic!!!!

    Very happy with the android version. Good user interface, good articles, articles update, etc. Now what did you do to the kindle version? This version stopped working. I have two kindles and they both stopped working at the same time. The articles will not update. Many other people are having the same issue. I prefer the kindles because of there size compared to my phone. Please fix

  15. Mark Toebbe-avatar

    I used to love this news app, now it is falling apart. The same article from the same news agency is repeated in the app by 4 to 10 times. Also, in the past, all articles you read were in the MSN app, now some are going to another app or website. If that happens, you are covered in ads and when you back out of the article and go back to the main app, you are returned to the top of the app, not to where you selected an article to read.

  16. Tony Davis-avatar

    Tony Davis


    Used to be a great news app, but now it repeats stories many, many times; doesn't seem to clear out old stories. e.g. A 1.5 month old story about Corona virus spike - that's really OLD and outdated information. And the ads are in your face so badly messing up the display and constantly loosing your place so you have to scroll down threw it all again, I just give up and go to fox news to rid myself of these issues. MS news is just not worth my time and frustration any more. I'm uninstalling it.

  17. Larry C-avatar

    Larry C


    Too many times when you press the back button to return to the main menu it does not take you back to where you left it but to dome where else making it difficult to finish looking at the rest of the articles for the ones you want to read. As well too many articles that make you continue hitting the next button go through the article.

    I would get alerts on my phone and everytime I go look at them the app would stay stuck in the loading screen. Even after I closed it out and try opening the app nothing would happen. Last time the app started to flicker and even locked my phone up. I'm also in a note 9. Deleted the app off my phone.

  20. lens33-avatar



    This app allows dishonest/deceptive advertising (like ALOT Travel, just one example). ALOT determines your city from your ISP, then uses it in false headlines as clickbait. If you click, you get a sales "story" that never mentions your city or the headline. It's greed from the app maker, pure and simple. If they allow tons of sketchy ads to make dirty money, one is left to wonder what other ways they abuse your privacy.

  21. Brandon Franklin-avatar

    Brandon Franklin


    Great app. Pulls news from left and right sources which gives a balanced view. The only gripe i have is you have to watch what ads are squeezed and sprikled in with the news stories so you think "interesting" click on it and "doh" its a ad of some kind. Goid job over all

  22. Alex Richter-avatar

    Alex Richter


    I want to like this news app, as there are few tolerable options available. I tried to stick with it for a few weeks. The personalization feels too broad and I don't feel I'm getting articles I'm interested in. Also, seamless integration of ads as "articles" is rather annoying. Maybe it's just hard to get decent news when everything is competing with clickbait titles. Also, the default notifications are very persistent, and way too frequent. Time to move on and try something else.

  23. Steve Brocato-avatar

    Steve Brocato


    MSNBC reports redondantly unstead of removing earlier reports. A nuisance. MSNBC's headlines exaggerate the story to gain a clic. Headlines are poorly written in awkward language. Otherwise it is a good digest.

  24. Peter Ulrich-avatar

    Peter Ulrich


    Update: Like every other news app, Microsoft News relies on various sources. Unfortunately, the "news" articles have devolved into subjective editorialization. More balanced news than the runner up, BBC. Still the normal liberal slant as expected, but occasionally conservative articles show up. So the best of the bad choices? What ever happened to simply facts? The middle? App is easy to customize. Logging in with a Microsoft account makes it more tailored.

  25. Axel Lieber-avatar

    Axel Lieber


    Very good app, it looks like they curate the content instead of just linking to it like most other news readers do. Means, you won't hit a pay wall with their articles. They also have localized versions for many countries and languages. Same deal, content seems curated. Only one thing to improve: make this work with Android desktop modes, such as Samsung Dex.

    Long time fan of this app, which I discovered on my windows phone years ago. I'm still a big fan of the app as it is a great aggregator of news with the most useful notifications for big news. It is the best.

  28. Debbie & Glenn Krebs-avatar

    Debbie & Glenn Krebs


    This is my 'go to app for news. I find a broad presentation of current events. Also you do not get drawn into an article only to bring up the article and have the site block access unless you subscribe. On the downside the app will freeze up and any attempts to fix in settings is a waste of time. You have to uninstall try another app and after a period of time install again.

    Clean sleek app from Microsoft. No signup hassle to read news from NYT, TWP, Guardian etc. All content delivered at once. Recommended. I came back to say, this was an awesome experience with UI and elements in the app. The design is very beautiful and consistent so unlike Microsoft. We also want a feature such that we can resume reading from last read location in case of saved pages

    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 👍

  31. Nishant Paul-avatar

    Nishant Paul


    Please add a few features where we can filter results on the main page itself if we are not interested in a certain news, or if we can block the entire category to stop showing feeds. The control should be in our hands about what we see. Otherwise this app has really smooth interface and provides relevant content.

  32. Jim C Hamil-avatar

    Jim C Hamil


    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 it really doesn't have the option. Google News let's one set source preferences easily.

  33. ARJUN SHARMA-avatar



    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

    News on the go. I don't watch television much so I have to get info n a day to day basis from the radio or friends and/or my devices.

    Works quite well, almost as smooth as Apple news on the iPhone. Much effort must have gone into this app . Please continue improvements by studying carefully the Apple user interface and trying to at least mimic Apple and do better where you can.

  36. cheetokhan-avatar



    There are no options to select what news you are, or are not, interrested in seeing. Are you sick of reading about President Trump? Too bad! this app will innundate you with wall to wall coverage of politics. Not really into sports? Too bad! Not really interrested in the weather on the other side of the world? Too bad! It's like those crappy 24 hour news channels that just keep repeating the same story over and over.

    I've used this app for 5 1/2 years and it always just works. However, I would like to be able to hide articles I don't want to read or have already read. Also it would be nice to tag an article so I can go back too it in the future.

  38. 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.

  39. Mikeal Allen-avatar

    I like the customized curated news stories and the breaking news already push notifications (optional). I wish you could absolutely EXCLUDE particular "news sources" so one isn't momentarily fooled into thinking a Fox News headline is actual fact checked news! Other than that, it's my go to source for news.

  40. Antonio-avatar



    Good features to choose interests, readability is great, interface is simple. Alerts/notifications are good too. Been using this since windows phone and still use it here. No complaints. Thank you for this. I get to read stories from sources that other apps require subscriptions to.

I wonder if the developer has fixed it, if so good job! I resume my use of this wonderful news app.

    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.

  44. rockonrevolution-avatar



    While the Ads in this app are labeled as "sponsored" that text is small and the ads are designed to look like the same as the actual news stories. Enough so that I'll get my news elsewhere.

    The app icon has diminished in visibility with new dull design in the maze of so many apps in android and iOS Home Screens. Please consider to revert the logo in all Red as before and if possible put a lightening bolt effect. The breaking news (as if coming from God's) should hit you like a bolt from the blue (color of Microsoft and the natural clean Sky). Try making it animated to stand out.

    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...

    Just when I needed some good news, I found it with this app. While this colours my opinion greatly, I appreciate having a solid source of reliable news which this app has consistently delivered. I recommend everyone verify newsworthy facts across media outlets. This is an excellent tool for that purpose. Thank you Microsoft.

    Used to work v. nicely (loaded article lists in a couple of secs). Latest update (20.181.02) as bad as previous updates. New icon but effectively doesn't work. Embarrassing. Hasn't worked properly since 19.331.06. 1st test - loaded "my news" in 15 sec. 2nd test took 25s to load items. 3rd test took 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.

    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.

    Microsoft APP for Linux based Android. Breaking and most recent news FREE! No ad inundations! *BUT new articles buried in old news -some weeks & months old(egSafest airlines for 2018!) Cannot keep news/articles in chronological order; or for removing old news; a PAIN to scroll past the old for new items.* No personal details required to access. Small size updates.

    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.

    It's a good news app but the UI needs to be 2020 level. The links on top and bottom won't take back to top of page. Is annoying to scroll all the way back to top. It's a simple feature to implement.

    Impartial, to the point, unbiased reports mean everything to me from news agencies. I value "Reuters" and Microsoft News uses a lot of stories from their reports. All in all, I am happy with it. Removed b/c of need for space. And today I'm getting it back.

    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.

    Great app, updates agree regular shock I like unlike the other app (G____e) this app would have a 5☆ but as there is no regional news, I will just give it a 4☆ for now and hope that the next update gives us the option to add regional news.

    I love this app! I'm an article aficionado. Reading and sharing information from all interests, is one of my hobbies. I do it daily. This app combined with my Flipboard account is like icing on the cake. Thanks Microsoft!!!

    It shows Best selected news from different sites from web. You can choose your interests to get news in your favorite topics. Overall I found Microsoft News best in compare to all news apps(like TOI& Hindu). It also not frustrates by showing much ads like others. Thanks :)

    Tuesday, May the 19th, 2020. Dear All at the Microsoft News, I, just, went through your article on the descriptions and comments, of the President of the USA, about the Pandemic Effects and was impressed with your well presented details. Certainly, you are using simple, easy the read and follow the facts language, that a common man on the streets easily follows. Congratulations! Carry on with your splendid work.

    Since my first Lumia 55 phone, I have enjoyed this app. It does exactly what you want it to do. I especially enjoy, The Daily Brief. I feel that I've done my "news chapter" for the day. 😇

    It's a pretty much useless app. It keeps freezing and good luck trying to log in using Authy, Lastpass, or any other 3rd party apps. News just hangs. Another quality app from Microsoft...

    No ability to chose news sources or flag sources that you don't want to see. "Top News" is arbitrary curated collection that someone at Microsoft pushes as important, clearly with a political and social bias. No decent ability to read international news.

    Quite good app. I used to use the biased BBC, but there was too much opinion by their journalists. I think this app could slim down a lot of the content.

    I find MS News provides a good cross-section of news articles from a good cross-section of sources, with as neutral approach as one can find these days. Refreshing attitude.

    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.

    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.

    Great news app. Honestly it is not in my face ENOUGH. It's too much of a wall flower. I dont want to go look up news every every day. I want email reminders and summaries and breaking news popups.

    Promising, but having a long way ahead to become Google News! Iritating in its use, lacking common -sense features, rigid UI, and behaving differently under various OS versions. Pity!

    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.

    The International Edition Doesn't work and the American Version is Limited. Please update your App to be easier to browse chosen tags and you should suggest relevant topics based on tags people follow. I've always wanted to get into UI, so feel free to reach out.

    Its a great app but its clearly biased. Not once did I see a right leaning article for politics. Even when you search for fox news it only shows criticism of it. A news app shouldn't censor what you see.

    Overall the app is not that bad. My only point is the lack of customisation. I got often news which I didn't ask for or completely random things out of my range of interest. That is wasting my time.

  123. Stuart-avatar



    MSN News now has an AI editor that is making some pretty bad mistakes (such as mixing up the identity of people). The MSN News journalists - that the AI is replacing - have reportedly been told by MSN News to manually supress a Guardian article written about this issue (reported by the Guardian and available to read). I don't want my news censored and I value human journalists far more than an error prone AI. I've un-installed this app.

    Thus far it seems like a good way to keep up to date with access to many sources. Nor sure I am taking full advantage of it; it may be the best way to access many newspapers around the country without subscribing to so many. Too many introductory offers for 99 cents.

    Gross - sources are nauseatingly biased. The user can't curate sources to insure a minimum of intellectual honesty and integrity in journalism. Expand the details on the app for yourself, consult the list of publicists, marketing, and spin houses they list as sources for credible, unbiased reporting. As if. Kick rocks, ya lames. Micro-pfft.

    It needs to give users more control over news sources. I'm not interested in the Manchester Evening Echo, as I'm the other end of the country. I'm not interested in anything written by Hello!
