With the update for Windows 10 Build 19603 released today, Microsoft is now inviting more Windows Insider members to participate in testing News Bar and hopes to get their positive feedback. The Windows Insider project team said: “This News Bar brings you the latest news from the Microsoft News Network, which has more than 4,500 publishers around the world, that you can customize to your needs.” When you need to track hot spots, you can control them with a few easy clicks. “
The beta settings allow users to set news regions, store the news they want to watch locally, set the screen location of the display, and so on. The app also starts automatically and allows the newsbar to be hidden for 90 minutes while performing certain tasks so that it doesn’t bother your work. Clicking on the news opens through the default browser set by the system.
