    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.

    es ist ein fehler aufgetreten Was pretty good! However, for 2 weeks now I have a huge "Women's Day" banner and articles in the app. 1. I didn't subscribe to this topic 2. 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.

  5. Kris-avatar



    letter Hate the new design. I have difficulty scrolling. If you start your swipe on a picture or the new stupid "up next" thing, it doesn't scroll. It often thinks I'm scrolling sideways instead of up and down. I get all the local news for places across the country that I don't want to see.

    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.

  7. Calin-avatar



    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.

  8. Dave-avatar



    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.

  9. Ramsey Baden-avatar

    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.

    funktioniert nicht Completely destroyed the app with the latest update with focus on social aspects. Looks too busy, compared to the clean look of the previous version. I used check this app every day in the old form. Now I can't stand it. You've just lost a user.

  11. Jade Greene-avatar

    Jade Greene


    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.

  12. Dave Dee-avatar

    Dave Dee


    Was a great news app before the last update and now is just a mix up of news and a visual mess. Was auto updated on my work phone, luckily my personal phone does not update so I still have old version on that. Best to avoid this version!

    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.

    Dennis Shipe


    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.

  15. Peter Hughes-avatar

    Peter Hughes


    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.

  16. Hexyl Cinnamal-avatar

    Hexyl Cinnamal


    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.

  17. Dar Numan-avatar

    Dar Numan


    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.

  18. Rajeev Mehra-avatar

    Rajeev Mehra


    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!

    Configurable to your taste, somewhat addictive and a sprinkling of content from subscription only providers like NYT and WaPo (not even sure how they do that...) 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. Update:2021/03/25 Article retrieval finally fixed! Bumping to 4 stars while considering other changes.

    They ruined the app with their latest update.The new look app doesn't update and is not compatible with other news site links. When I try to open an MS News story link from another service MS News opens up the app to "Your News" tab rather then the article I am trying to read.

  21. Daniel Hodges-avatar

    I wish the widget on my Home screen could be centralised (resized) and manually refreshed. Would be the only changes I would make. Have been using this app since my Win10 mobile days (still dearly missed). As of Feb '21and the new update - on every story: "Something went wrong". It certainly did MS, it certainly did... Farewell old friend. Uninstalled.

    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.

  23. faktuu-avatar



    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.

    great news app, good breaking alerts. still like app content, don't like new logo. Update 3/12/21. What happened to this app? Are we children needing primary colors like we are infants. I do not care for the new app. Microsoft doesn't need to copy Googles lead. Plus why do all the articles now have dumb emojis that are a facebook dumb thing! Again, what happened Microsoft?!Downgraded to 3 stars.

  25. Grant Forbes-avatar

    Grant Forbes


    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...

  26. ABC-108-avatar



    Great news app. Informative and good features. You can added categories liked entertainment, technology, sports, world news and more. Would recommend it. Thanks. (Review on today 3/17/21) App was working great before the updated. Now the format and the layout are bad and hard to navigate. 5 stars again when go back to the old format.

  27. Jezko68 Mattzart-avatar

    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!

  28. VISWESWAR REDDY-avatar



    the app transformed a lot. Speed is superb. 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.,

  29. L Monty-avatar

    L Monty


    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.

  30. Jim Carlson-avatar

    Jim Carlson


    The new format which now has each section contain endless stories is a complete mess. Why have repeats of items over and over. App is no longer worth the time to try to plow thru. Moving to other apps for reporting info. New update. Since the new format is without a doubt the WORST application I have seen I have deleted the app fron my phone. You ruined a formerly good and useful news source. Good bye!

    I enjoy reading the news published on this app. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE LATEST UPDATE, THE LARGE 4 x 6 WIDGET IS GONE!! It was mostly from seeing headlines on the widget I was drawn to the Microsoft News. Please 🙏 bring back the widget(s)? I will probably replace this with one that does, I only have a few minutes to check my phone. Thanks 🙂

  32. Sebastian Hoyos-avatar

    Sebastian Hoyos


    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.

  33. Jérôme Patissier-avatar

    Jérôme Patissier


    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.

  34. N K-avatar

    Love it. Larger variety of articles than before. Better quality, as well. I prefer it over Google News. Update (April 2021): Still good, still 5 stars -- although I need to get used to the new layout.

    Robert Balsley


    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.

  36. Michelle Stewart-avatar

    Microsoft News overloads my feed with information that serves the purposes of others, not me as the end user. Even though I entered my interests, what I'm directed to is impersonal and, honestly, feels like propaganda.

    No longer opens. I get a quick flash of the Microsoft News logo screen then back to my home screen. Weirdly still get push notifs, so I still see random breaking news headlines but can't get the app to launch to read anything. That's highly disappointing for a news junkie.

    The latest update seems to have removed the news widget. I can't seem to add it to my home screen anymore. Prior to that, there had been this news about NASA simulations for ages on the widget. I hope that has issue will be fixed if you'll ever fix the missing widget issue.

  39. JC S.-avatar

    JC S.


    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.

    The latest update completed ruined the app for me. Before i could easily find the news i wanted, most well sorted. Now the interface sucks (for me) and it doesn't show the news i want anymore. The home now shows a lot of not-news related icons. Why? Does MS try to create a universal app? Bad idea.

    Partisan mainstream media sources. Getting double notifications, can't figure that one out in settings and I know what I'm doing. Lack of a widget now makes this app useless. Previous version was better. Seems to be the case with most apps these days. SMH.

    There are too many sources that I have no interest in . When I hide the source, the feed jumps to the beginning. Very irritating to have to scroll through stories again. Will probably delete app.

  43. MrDrProfessorScience-avatar



    New update is horrible. News won't load until images are loaded, something that wasn't an issue before the update. Also, I now see what other people are "reacting" to each story and there's no way to turn it off. I don't want to see what others think of the stories.

    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.

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.

  51. Adam-avatar



    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!

    This latest update is garbage! It focuses too much on social media and less on content. It sacrifices news content for apps and services that are just there to maximize data collection/monetization. On top of all that it deleted all my saved articles!

    This app is now like a super-app, with a math solver, unit converter, sports, weather, and a web browser. honestly, I don't like it. The design also looks too big for my smartphone.

    This app is smooth and useful. The weather app is nice, too. I would like to have more updates about recent news, not just highlights. And maybe an easy-to-access button for bookmarks.

  69. OldGrouchyGuy-avatar



    Mostly "popcorn news" instead of real news. Clickbait ads throughout. Also, there's something seriously wrong with whomever thought a news app needed to look like social media, with up and down votes, and emoji support.

    The selection of news stories is varied but often interesting. Works smoothly on Android with no crashes. Easy to remove sources I don't want. Thorough recommend this app

    Was used to the cleaner older version. This version is way too busy and no longer had the news that I want front and center like before.

    Was great, now broken. I used and enjoyed this ap for years but this last update completely broke it for me. I can't even get it to open any longer. I'm still hoping they will fix it.

    Was a great app. The latest update is horrible and now (3/23/21) the app won't even launch. I tried reinstalling and it still crashes after the splash screen. 😕

    I like the news alerts which take you straight to the article. The new design is clean and more usable.

    Results of higher quality than in the Google news feed and a great option to react on the news. However the Field of liking or reacting to news often behaves buggy as soon as I want to select something else than the thumbs up.

    Used to love it, recent update while it looks great any link I open from Facebook no longer takes you to the ACTUAL article but just opens the MSN app. So started using the browser instead ☹️

    Tablet layout is ridiculous. And please please remove the like button. Was a great news app before the update, please bring it back.

    Massive app overhaul. Not a good one for Android users who utilise widgets because now there is no longer one in any way shape or form for your desktop. Uninstalling and right back to shabby old Google News I go!

    best news app so many different stories great for news junkies (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) edited -- all words b4 this are from 2018 ) don't like updated version. Feels like they copied google. In fact they did next time try to be oringal not a copy

    How do I turn off the dumb smiley/sad faces by the news stories that suddenly started appearing today? Thanks, I really needed something else politicized in my life to show up because there wasn't enough of that already. Allow me to disable them altogether

    No better than a web page full of advertisements. What was a great news app has been ruined, turned into a scrolling web page of advertisements instead of many articles at your disposal with tiles.

    Used to be my go-to news app. Now it's bulky,freezes often and repeats over and over. Not much news,just filler. Was much better before the update.

    No matter what I do on my phone, as an American Soldier on an American base in Japan, the app update keeps installing itself in Japanese. Even when I change the location and time zone. It's extremely annoying and may cause me to never use the app again

  85. Kevin Israel-avatar

    Not a fan of the redesign. It feels a bit clunky on my phone, and I really don't like seeing other people's social media style reactions on news articles.

    New design with the integration of the visual search is just amazing! Always have been a fan of Microsoft's visual search and still think it'd be great if it were a stand alone app.

    Very nice layout, up to date. A lot has changed and can honestly say this is the best News app ever. Works very well with Microsoft Launcher.

    Update ruined an OK app. Now it's way too busy. Trying to do too much for a news app. Wallpapers and math pictures. Tablet use is pointless. So much wasted space. Uninstalling

    I absolutely do not like the new format. Why does a slideshow not have slides? Why does one story bleed into the next? The new format is not an improvement.

    Recent update causes app to crash upon launching on my Note 10+. Clear storage and cache and it will launch once, but then crash if launched again.

    Used to be very good, recent update has broken the smooth animations between topics, freezing and hanging sometimes happening. UI nightmare, hopefully improves.

    Terrible. Don't need MS to decide what I want in a news brief. Previous version was more compact. And I don't care about thumbs up/down from people I don't know. I'll look for another news feed.

  95. Andrew A-avatar

    Hate the new layout, feels it's focused on search instead news, and don't care about the number of people who thumbs up or gives an emotion on an article

  96. William Lakusta-avatar

    I hate the new format. It is like all others. I have to scroll for ever to find anything worth reading. Maybe others like it but I would love to get the old format back.

    What was a good app now has so much wasted screen unlike the old version that used to show various times of articles now it's just plain dumb and it wants to be all things. I don't need another browser or anything else for that matter just news wanted!

    Newest update that doesn't let me copy a few lines of text to give context to tweet has me not using it as much to get news. Too bad since i had enjoyed the somewhat wide variety of stories and perspectives.

    So far so good., I just wish I could totally ban American politics from all my news feeds including video. Edit.. I understand u have to put some ads but ffs.. What kind of ads?! Kim Kardashian, only fans?!... Srly come on Microsoft.. At least give us ads based on the topics we have on our news feed. From 4 stars to only one.

    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.

    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.
