Getting the News with the News App

True to its name, the News app fills you in on the latest news. Starting with the top story of the day and then displaying the new items across a variety of categories, the app covers stories focusing on your own country, the world, technology, business, entertainment, politics, sports, and health. You can view the latest trending news stories and look at stories from a specific source, such as the Associated Press, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, and many others. You can also search for different people, events, and other items in the news and add the topics that most interest you to your own news page. This task explains how to get the news with the News app.
