Updating the “News and Interests” widgetÂ»
Starting today, the company is rolling out a new “News and Interests” widget design that will make it even more enjoyable to scan and interact with the headlines and stories in your news feed. Images from articles now stand out with a bright and colourful design, which makes your feed more attractive and beautiful.
The new feed interface, which opens in the browser after clicking on the “More News” button, has also been redesigned so that you can immediately learn about the top news and can enjoy a vibrant feed that highlights your personalized stories. Large cards can now display the text of the article, helping you understand its meaning before you open it.
In the “News and Interests” widget, as well as on the main page, it is now easier to express your reaction to the news with the help of updated emoticons. Now you can put a like, heart, angry or surprised emoticon, etc.
Initially, the updated design will be available to insiders in the United States, and will eventually appear in other markets, so stay tuned.
We remind yÐ¾u thÐ°t the “News Ð°nd Interests” widget is grÐ°duÐ°lly sÑ€reÐ°ding Ð°mÐ¾ng users, whiÑh meÐ°ns thÐ°t the feÐ°ture is nÐ¾t yet Ð°vÐ°ilÐ°ble tÐ¾ Ð°ll insiders Ð¾n the Dev ÑhÐ°nnel.
