Microsoft Start is a new personalized news center | Digital Trends Spanish

Microsoft has just introduced a new news service. Called Microsoft Start, it is a selection of articles and topics specifically curated for each user and that can be used in Windows 10, the next Windows 11 as well as mobile phones.

According to Microsoft, people spend seven hours a day connected to the internet and use six feeds of news; furthermore, that same feeds they are checked five times a day. And what people do not want to do is have to validate the sources, but always go to the media and sources that they consider reliable.

Microsoft Start solves that problem, since the news is personalized and comes only from posts that the user already knows about. Basically what Microsoft describes is the feed from Google on mobile, but for various devices or even in a web version.

The experience of using Microsoft Start will be refined as the user uses it and makes click in various articles. And because it is a multiplatform service, it will be synchronized on all devices when you log in with a Microsoft account, both desktop and mobile.

But beyond the name, Microsoft Start is something like the current MSN classic, except with a new name and with some more specific customization options. Microsoft also assures that the content curation will be carried out through a mixture of artificial intelligence algorithms and human moderators.

Microsoft Start will show not only news, but also localized information regarding weather or other events that the user may be interested in. And it is available now in all its formats, either on the main web, as a tab in Microsoft Edge and as an application that can be downloaded on iOS and Android.
