Microsoft News shows you news from your region, so creating a regionalized edition of the app is more important than many general apps. Microsoft curates news for the app with a joint effort of human editors and artificial intelligence to show people relevant news.
Microsoft overhauled the design of the Microsoft News app back in the Summer of 2018. It features a clean layout and a dark mode that's friendly on your device's battery. You can personalize the app to show you a specific news experience. The app features content from over 3,000 global brands and currently has editions in over 20 countries. Thanks to this update, that list of countries now includes The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Israel.
