Microsoft’s news app is renamed Microsoft Start. If in 2018 it changed its name from MSN News to Microsoft News, it has now done so again, this time for the third time.
Because Microsoft has completely redesigned the web version of its news portal, it is now possible to get the same experience from the browser as on mobile devices. To expand awareness of this transformation, the news service debuts a new name and logo.
This is Microsoft Start for Android
Microsoft Start wants to be our gateway to the present, with an app that aims to provide us with material that we are most interested in in a simple way.
If you were already using Microsoft News on your phone, the upgrade will only make two changes: the program’s name has been changed to Microsoft Start, and its icon has been updated. In this change, the company has not redesigned the application, since it was not necessary.
The app will offer us the current events, with news, articles, and the last hour of topics that interest us. In the primary view, all of the recommendations are displayed in a tabbed format, which we can read using its navigation like a browser while in private mode to prevent search data from being saved on our device.
We may use Windows 10 to better personalize our interests, such as specify what news or media we like or dislike, in order to improve the recommendations or save articles for later reading. It also enables us to go through all of the news in different categories.
Microsoft Stars also includes a news search engine and its own Google Lens for searching pictures, items, or texts with the options to copy or translate the texts recognized by the camera of our mobile, or from the gallery.
