MSN News and Weather get Chase-able and Transparent Tiles respectively for all Windows 10 users

Back on November 11, Microsoft updated their MSN News and Weather apps to bring a few new features from the Anniversary Update.

Build 4.17.72 of MSN News for Mobile and PC brought chase-able Tiles where "Live tile articles now appear at the top of My News (for the News app)." The same update brought an optional transparent Live Tile for Weather on Mobile as well.

Tonight, both of those apps have been released for Production (non-Insider) with build 4.17.74 for PC and Mobile. Those versions match the current Fast and Slow Ring Insider builds as well. Additional changes include "Performance, reliability and accessibility improvements" and "general bug fixes."

Note: Only MSN Weather on Mobile has the transparent Tile. MSN News gets the chase-able tile feature.

With just a 10-day turnaround Microsoft is making quick use of the Insider program to test and push out new features right away to all Windows 10 users.

Thanks, Robert de N., for the tip!
