      • My news feed is all just one topic.

        I have News, Sports, Entertainment, Money and other intetests set but when I read my feed I only see Sports. If I disable Sports then all I see is Entertainment and so it goes. If I re-enable all of them it may go back to a normal "mix" of topics but eventually (within the same day) it'll all go back to Sports.

          • Certain news items are not relevant to my location such as new restaurants and other local news for completely different cities.

            Filter out local news items that are not relevant to my location or any locations that I'm watching. The locations for weather should be a good source for location-based local news items.

                  • news, wwe

                    My whole news feed is flooded with WWE news while I've explicitly turned off all sports news.
                    WWE stuff comes with the tag "NEWS", which is wrong and which I cannot turn off for obvious reasons.

                        • News Feed

                          I like the news feed on Microsoft launcher, however the news is irrelevant to me as non of the articles is related to my country or location.

                          I'm from Nigeria, west Africa. Please try and offer localized content in the news feed.

                          I use Yandex Zen an app from Russia for news. It gives me localized news from my country Nigeria.

                          I believe Microsoft can do even better. Google is doing it. Microsoft can also do it.

                          Thanks.

                                    News feed still shows sports news even when sports topic is disabled. News sources with "sports" in their name are showing up. You'd think that would be the first keyword to look for when excluding articles...

                                        • images don't display in news articles

                                          images display as blank grey in all news articles. (only the thumbnail for the article will display correctly.)
