The revamped the application by personalizing the newsfeed with more than 200 categories of topics, referred to as ‘Vibes’ which will allow the users to search and access any kind of news which they are interested in. The users will be able to re-post articles and videos, participate in discussions and share their reactions from across the web.
In the newsfeed, you will be able to see the top news stories from renowned sources such as Bloomberg, NPR, Buzzfeed, WSJ and many more. You can use the message board in the app to post articles from the web to any Vibe so as to stir up a discussion on the topic.
