Microsoft Start app offers a personalized news reading experience to android users. With this app, Microsoft is rebranding these into Windows Start and integrating the feed into the Windows 11 widgets section on your Laptop.
And just like its News service, this app includes news and media channels from more than 1,000 publishers. Microsoft uses AI and machine learning algorithms to sort through which news is presented to users and to personalize content.
