  5. News market wrong language/region

    The news market lists Nederlands (Nederland), when in reality this option is used for Nederlands (België). Als wouldn't it be more logical to mention it in the same way as for French part of Belgium?

  12. News feed navigation

    Reading news in the news feed has a problematic user experience. Try scrolling slowly while you read. You will quickly find that it stops scrolling and tries to swipe left or right. So, the experience is: read, scroll, let go of the screen, scroll some more, repeat, over and over.

  13. newsfeed does not apply parental control filters

    I have installed Microsoft launcher in my kids phone. Login is set up as minor account with appropriate parental control settings enabled.
    the newsfeed in his main screen does not screen out adult content, should have picked up based on parental control settings.

  16. language

    News thinks I'm British, I'm not, and I'm tired if seeing their news, and being asked if I fancy new wheels bloke. Showing ads or stories about British cars to me is pointless. I won't buy one, I've never been to England, and I'll never go to travel. If you want to sell cars, just show Ford and GM like you always have.

  17. news sucks

    News feed is absolute garbage. The royals aren't headlines, or news, it's tabloid headlines, celebrity rags. I don't read that junk, yet you push it at me all the time, and not even about celebrities I watch and follow, just your choices. Shame on you for asking about my interests so you can provide news, and using them to craft ads instead. Your crafting ads for someone who can't afford to buy new socks, why would I care about a rich family that used to force people to worship them while they had sex with their own family members to…

  18. News Feed

    After the latest update, the News Feed is not continuous when I scroll down.

    For e.g. if I scroll down the feed, the news card should rewind as follows: 1hr 2hr, 3hr...10hr,....1 day...5day...10days....1 month.

    But in my case it skips months and years. It is as follows: 1hr, 2hr, 1day, 31Jan 2018, 4 Apr 2016.

    I'll be more than happy to help you with more details and snapshot if required.
