Microsoft Start is a personalized news feed arriving on Windows 11 and Edge

Microsoft is taking aggressive action to be your go-to source for news and information. Revealed today, Microsoft Start is a news aggregator that consists of a personalized feed and other information tailored to each user. 

The successor to MSN and Microsoft News, Microsoft Start will begin rolling out today as a standalone website and mobile app (on Android and iOS), and will be built into the Windows 10 Taskbar, Windows 11 Widgets feature, and Microsoft Edge as a new tab.

Using machine learning and AI, Microsoft Start is designed to present topics relevant to individual users while human moderators work to ensure stories come from reliable sources. The feed, which gets smarter about learning your interests the more you use it, curates content from “over a thousand global premium publishing brands.” It isn’t all automatic, though; users can manually manage their interests and flag sites they do or don’t like.

I’ve been playing with the standalone website since it went live this morning, and have found it to contain interesting and relevant news. MLB scores were shown on a right-side panel (although MLS or Bundesliga would’ve been more apt for me), just below the weather for my local area and stock prices.
