  1. Let me use Google Feed in the news tab instead of Microsoft News. Samsung's launcher lets me choose between Samsung News and Google Feed...

    In the Feed section of Microsoft launcher, under News, the user should be able to choose between a variety of aggregators. Options should include Google Feed, Microsoft News, Samsung Free, heck, even Reddit Popular and the user's personal Reddit subscriptions feed. Right now, the news tab in Microsoft Launcher feels a little anticompetitive and I think I'm going to reach out to the FTC's antitrust office about it if nothing changes in this regard.

  3. news feed

    The news feed needs the ability to be personalised, I have tried configuring my news feed settings on my windows account on the web, but they do not sync with the launcher news feed. there are some real trash publications coming up in the feed that I am not able to block (sky news, daily Mail) I also cannot add smaller independent publishers or other websites - eg, the feed should be able to pick up an RSS of any site.

  4. 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.

  6. I am from Tamil Nadu, India. So, I want Launcher News in Tamil Language. Google gives news in Tamil. I expect this from Microsoft also.

    Now I stopped using Google for home screen. Started Microsoft since it looks much beautiful and easier to use. So, I request you to give launcher news in Tamil Language as soon as possible. Eagerly waiting! Please help!

  9. News Feed Customization

    We are only able to choose the broader topics as of now. Instead, let us choose what type of news to be on our feed, allow us to delete irrelevant news cards from the feed.

  10. Opt out of video on newsfeed

    Add a toggle to disable news stories with video content, at least while the phone is not connected to WiFi.

  11. Please add the Google discover page that OneUI has

    In the settings, there should be an option to replace the Microsoft News feed with the Google discover feed

  12. Allow blacklisting certain news sources (or integration with MSN News which supports that feature)

    It would be good to be able to hold on a specific news story and select "don't see articles from this source" to block it. A settings page to manage blocked sites would be good too.

  16. Calender link in feed

    Hi there, previously there was a link to calender at top in news feed, but now it's removed. I think that was a very useful link because now I have to open Outlook and then access it

  17. The news shown in feed are not local. I am from India, but I'm getting news in feed are almost all from global level and not from India.

    As the news in shown in news are not local, not even within country India. This feature is not appreciated, not liked, and used by Indian users. We just disable the news in feed. Please provide local & within country news in feed.
    Hope you're a reputed Microsoft brand and do the needful to fix the above mentioned issue, sothat that feature can be used by we Indian users.
    Thank you.

  18. Remove from news feed ( polish version) untrusted sources of news like dorzeczy.pl, niezależna.pl, wpolityce.pl.

    News feed to be trustful but now polish version is dominated by supporters of current government.

  20. news

    The News must contain local news of the City too as the Google provides successfully. Hence, more Topics/options should be given to get news on the screen.
