Microsoft is giving MSN a massive, much needed overhaul

1 min read

Can you remember when was the last time that you dropped by MSN.com? Now that is definitely a question that is worth pondering over, especially when you take into consideration how just about everyone no longer checks out portals, but they more or less know where they are about to visit the moment they go online. Microsoft intends to change things where portals are concerned, having introduced a revamped web portal that is more in line with that of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s “mobile first, cloud first” line of thought.

When’s the last time you visited MSN.com? Exactly. Microsoft is hoping to change that. It has just unveiled an overhaul to make the venerable web portal more of a hub in keeping with CEO Satya Nadella’s “mobile first, cloud first” mantra. At the top of the new MSN home page there’s a strip of shortcuts to Microsoft services like One Drive, Office 365 and Skype — as well as to popular services like Facebook and Twitter. Soon, the company will introduce a variety of MSN apps for Apple and Android devices that carry any preference you set across all of your devices. So, for example, you will be able to set a watch list of stocks in MSN Money, sports teams in MSN Sports, or recipe collections in MSN Food & Drink. The idea, the company said, is that “those things will always be with you at your PC at work, on your iPad in the living room, or on your Android phone.” The new coat of paint also includes productivity tools like shopping lists and a savings calculator. There’s also amedical symptom checker and3D body explorer. In a blog post announcing the remake, Microsoft said the apps would launch “in coming months.” The MSN.com makeover itself is now available as a preview at preview.msn.com. It will roll it out in 55 markets worldwide in coming weeks.
