Last week, Microsoft announced "Microsoft News" and launched updated apps for iOS and Android that introduced a new design and rebrand. Oddly, there was no mention of an updated app in the works for Windows 10, which had many questioning whether a new News UWP app would ever come.
Today, Microsoft has rolled out a new version of the News app for Insiders in the Fast ring that brings with it a new design featuring elements of Fluent Design, and the same "Microsoft News" rebrand now found on other platforms. The new app looks great, and even has a link to download the News app on your phone too.
The Windows 10 News app was in dire need of an update, as it was starting to look dated when compared side-by-side with other in-box apps that have already been updated with Microsoft's new Fluent Design language. An update to the News UWP app should also help reconfirm Microsoft's commitment to in-box UWP apps.
The update is currently only available to testers in the Fast ring, but we can expect to see this update rollout publicly soon. What are your thoughts on the updated app? Let us know in the comments!
