Use the Bing News app in Windows 8.1 to follow your favorite stories


Microsoft continues to update its built-in Windows 8.1, after it has recently given a serious overhaul especially to the Xbox Music and Xbox Video apps, but also updating Windows Reading List and others. Now, it’s time for the Bing News to receive an updated in the Windows Store. As of now, Microsoft hasn’t made available the release note details but we resort to the Windows Store reviews for that.

According to what users are saying, the app is now faster and doesn’t take so much to load as it did for some. Actually, I recall that the Bing News app felt a little bit sluggish for me after making the update to Windows 8.1. And now I can confirm myself that the app is now faster, which means performance improvements have been put in place by Microsoft.
