Since the newly redesigned Microsoft News for iOS and Android was released a few months ago, we’ve received a significant amount of positive feedback and product feature suggestions from our fans. One of your top requests was for a more compact layout of your news feed.

We’re committed to delivering a great news app and strongly believe that listening to our customers helps create a better experience. Therefore, we’re excited to announce today the new Layout Choices for your news feed available on your phone.

This feature puts you in control of the layout for your news feed: standard, compact or text-only. While the standard layout provides a modern and beautiful experience, you can choose to see more news stories at a glance in the compact or text-only views.
