  1. The news feed desperately needs to be customizable. We should be able to choose sources. The current news feed is basically useless.

    The "News" under feed settings needs to be a clickable link that can bring up a menu where users can select the sources they wish to see show up on the news feed. There should still be topical feeds, but without the ability to choose sources, the news feed is basically useless since each user still needs to go to their sources to find the news they are interested in. More people would use the feature if more people could use the feature for what they want and care about.

  2. Let us choose specific news interests, example, sports, I want to know news about American Football, but not about Soccer.

    Let the user choose specific news interests, for example, I want to see news about Sports, but not every sport, I see a lot of news about Soccer but I'm not interested in that sport.
    This could work adding subcategories in the news interests.

  3. フィードのニュースは自動的にリロードしないでほしい。任意てリロードできるようにしてほしい。

    スワイプしてフィードのニュースを表示すると自動的にリロードしてニュースが更新される。一覧を見て閲覧したいと思ったニュースが無くなるので不便。任意で更新するタイミングを選択できる機能が欲しい。
    GoogleのDiscoverはそうなっているはず。

  4. Open articles from news feed in actual edge app

    Currently, clicking on a news article from the feed opens in a browser wrapper that says "powered by Microsoft edge". An option in the menu is "open in Microsoft edge". If my launcher setting is to open the article in edge, why is not using the actual app? It should open in the actual Microsoft Edge app. This way it gets the attributes of a website opened in the browser, such as appearing in my history. When I open an article, then later want to find it again, it's impossible, because there is no history to look through to find…

  5. update news feed. back to the top

    When we read the news in the news feed scrolling to the left ir the launcher, the scroll stops in the last news we read. I suggest a buttom or a refresh option to Go back to the top. today, if we read lots of news and get back to the app, It starts where we last stopped and se have to scroll until the top of the page to read the updated ones. thanks

  9. You are having a laugh if your idea of personalize your news is enabling the user to tick sports, I hate football, but love tennis:stupid

    By enabling in each of your so called personalised settings sub sections of interest, so obvious Microsoft some times is baffling

    swipe left or right to remove it from my feed giving more room for new or interesting news.

  13. Support app links when opening newsfeed articles

    Apps can register themselves to handle loading certain websites via app links (deep links). The Microsoft News app supports this (which provides a better reading experience), and potentially other apps as well.

    Supporting app links would be fantastic.

  16. allow certain news sources to be blocked from the feed

    long press on an article preview to bring up a small menu. In that menu can be any number of options but a "block news from xxxxx" button should be included.

  18. News market

    You need to be able to select more than one market. At least two, 5 is probably the right number

  19. News tag

    I don't think we need type of news tag in the headlines. Get rid of the tag from the headlines so we can have better consistent looks and design with some more space utilization.

  20. I'd like to be able to chose in the news section, what piece of new I want to read and what I don't, so the recommendation could be better

    there's an article, and there's two options when you long press the article "more" or "less" meaning "I want to see more content like this" or "I want to see less content like this". The idea is that the news could be more personalized
