Microsoft News Replaces MSN News on iOS and Android


The MSN News app from Microsoft is getting updated to Microsoft News. Android Central and OnMSFT confirmed that the update is being rolling out slowly on Android and iOS Beta Testers.

Nothing much is changed apart from the new name. Except the fact that users will have to go through a new setup experience, which introduces the new name and asks you to check off your interests, after updating.

The update follows a major update rolled out in January this year, which was a complete visual makeover of the app. The revamp included the ability to keep your news interests in sync across all devices, a dark theme, and continuous scrolling from one article to the next.

You can grab the update if you are a beta tester on Android or iOS. There’s no exact timeline on when the revamp will make its way to the release version but it will be soon.
