The Redmond giant, Microsoft has introduced a new scrolling news bar app for Windows 10. It is placed just above the taskbar and provides scrolling news from more than 4,500 publications, and if you will choose, it will also show customizable stock information.

The scrolling News bar app is similar to the scrolling news apps which we used to saw in the 90s for Windows PCs. It was developed by Microsoft’s internal news team formerly known as MSN news. The News Bar app supports multiple displays system and can be minimized if it distracts you.

Rafael Rivera, from Microsoft, posted a tweet saying, “Here’s what Microsoft’s News Bar (beta) looks like. Yes, it’s a periodically scrolling appbar sitting on top of the Windows Taskbar.

However, this is still a beta version through which Microsoft is asking for feedback. There is also something a lot of users may not like, which is that the news bar doesn’t respect your default browser preferences. Instead, it opens the links in Microsoft’s Edge browser. Also, you cannot customize through which sources your news will come from or which topics it will cover.

The News Bar app is already available as a beta version for Windows 10 users. The setting panel lets you customize the bar in various ways. For example, you can place the bar at the top, bottom, left, or right-hand side of a screen. You can also choose between text or images for news items.

If you want to check the scrolling News Bar app, it is available in the Microsoft Store free of cost.
