What you need to know

  • Microsoft news added another handy new feature with its latest update.
  • There's now a little weather widget in the "My News" section.
  • This update is rolling out now as Microsoft News version 4.46.22112.0.

If you use the Microsoft News app to take in your daily headlines, there's a handy new feature rolling out that you'll want to be aware of. The "My News" section now packs a weather block amongst all of the day's news, giving you a quick look at the upcoming forecast.

The widget is simple, including a display of the current temperature and chance for precipitation. Below that, you'll also find the forecast for the next five days, including the high and low temperatures. There's also an option to toggle between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

It's a minor addition, but it should come in handy if you'd like to focus on something other than raging at the day's headlines. This updated page is rolling out now as part of Microsoft News version 4.46.22112.0.
