Bing News Gets Modern Makeover

At Bing, we know that keeping pace with what’s happening in the world can be a full time job. People want to access the news in real-time whether it’s on a phone, tablet, or PC. Today’s news is propelled by “likes” and “tweets” and headlines rise and fall in less time than it takes to eat lunch. That’s why we’ve refreshed Bing News to make it easier for you to stay on top of the stuff you care about.

Our new modern layout is built for touch and, showcases top trending topics from Facebook, Twitter and Bing as well as related people from across the web.
