We know that many of you haven’t yet found out the news, but sneaky Redmond developers have reworked a Windows app and released t right under our noses.

What do we mean? Well, Microsoft has quietly started rolling out a redesigned Weather app for Windows 10 and 11.

In fact, it has been sitting quietly without much attention from the company for quite a while, but now users can enjoy a brand-new home screen with more information and MSN News.

And, if your MSN page will not refresh, we have a solution for you. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the new MSN app and see what’s going on.

What can I expect from the redesigned MSN app?

Looking at the new experience, the biggest change in the new MSN Weather app (version 4.53.5109 and newer) is a redesigned home page with tabs.

Using these tabs, you can quickly check the forecast for your favorite locations, so you can save a lot of time.

Furthermore, there are new information blocks, such as Suggestions for your day with forecast-based recommendations.

So, as an example, know that the app can tell you if you need an umbrella, what clothing you may want to wear, wind safety, and more.

It’s not all rainbows and unicorns and, unfortunately, when upgrading the app, Microsoft lost the air quality indicator, so you can no longer check AQI for your area in MSN Weather.

There might actually be some things that you surely won’t appreciate when dealing with this redesigned MSN application.

That being said, get ready for a swarm of recommended content on each page inside the app, a feature that annoys a lot of users.

Once you scroll down, the app will greet you with the MSN News feed, which has gained infamy for feeding customers with all sorts of questionable content.

The bright side is that the feed focuses on weather news, so it does not try to shove celebrity gossip and other nonsense down your throat.

Overall, the MSN Weather app for Windows 10 and 11 is now an exact copy of its web-based interface available on the msn.com/en-us/weather page.

As a fun fact, if you didn’t know, it was recently declared the most accurate forecast provider by the popular website ForecastWatch.

While some say that the service’s UI is not the most convenient or easy to use, others argue that at least it provides accurate forecasts.
