Your Xbox One might not be the first place you'd think to install a dedicated news app, but Microsoft's experimental Garage division is filling that niche. Called Your News, the Microsoft Garage project acts as an aggregator for curated, personalized news on your Xbox.
Microsoft is billing this as a hands-free experience, serving up headlines and MSN video content from a variety of sources. The goal, as described by the Vancouver team behind the app, is to give people a feed that they can turn on while they go about other activities around the house.
We helped to serve this by ensuring our users had the choice of which news they wanted to watch. They are provided with a list of news topics and sources personalized to their tastes, each of which provides a variety of news stories. If they'd like to watch passively, they can put the controller down and watch a continuous stream of stories. This is Your News, where users can watch news they are interested in, whenever they want.
Not a bad idea, particularly if you want quick access to topics you care about without any filler. In any case, if you want to give the app a shot, you can check out Your News on the Windows Store and download it to your Xbox One now.
