Yahoo News Digest today goes global. This fresh news service of Yahoo gives users a complete view of top news and information in the shortest amount of time. Back in January 2014, Yahoo first launched its News Digest service only for the iOS users in the United States and United Kingdom.
Yahoo said that it receives and "overwhelming response, with 40% of those who downloaded the app coming back to it on a daily basis." And this good response encouraged search giant to bring this fresh news experience to more people worldwide.
That is why, Yahoo today launched an Android version of its News Digest service along with exiting iOS version. Yahoo News Digest's fresh Android version has a new homescreen widget that will make it easier for reader to view what they have already read with most recent unread digest.
Yahoo News Digest's new widget will keep track of already read digests by counting it down. The new Android app will show the same count down until the arrival of next digest.
"Every morning and night, Yahoo News Digest delivers a summarized version of the top news, in an easy-to-navigate design. Using algorithmic and human editorial curation, each story is a collection of “atoms” — articles, maps, Wikipedia entries, videos, and photos — that make it easy to “digest” the news quickly," states Yahoo in an official blog.
With the launch of an International edition in English, Yahoo News Digest goes global as it is now available for on both iOS and Android devices worldwide.
