Yahoo News Digest App Hits Android & Goes International

Earlier this year, Yahoo continued its mobile push with the release of their mobile news app “Yahoo News Digest” for iOS. The main powering agent of Yahoo News Digest was the technology from former acquisition, Summly. Today, Yahoo News Digest is expanding out to more devices in more locations, thanks to new editions.


First off, Yahoo News Digest is now available on Android that brings the same great iOS features with the addition of a homescreen widget. The new Android homescreen widget will display the most recent unread digest on top and keep track of previously read articles.


For users around the globe, a new international version will display news from all areas for both Android and iOS. This will deliver pertinent world news to readers in English. Additionally a Canadian-specific version has launched for both mobile operating systems that allow users to see locally relevant stories related directly to Canada.
