Microsoft Aims To Revive MSN

MSN was one of the original all-in-one portals created by Microsoft over 2 decades ago. It’s your default Internet Explorer homepage, and as of late something you probably have almost forgotten about. In-fact with almost no real updates to the MSN portal Microsoft may have very well almost forgotten about it as-well. This is all about to change however as Microsoft launches a preview to the brand new MSN portal. The new MSN can easily connect viewers to core consumer-facing Microsoft services, like Outlook.com, Office Online, OneDrive and Skype, as well as prominent social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Ofcourse there is also easy access to Bing Search, which sits at the top of the online portal.

Now don’t think that the personal portal concept of MSN is all gone now. Microsoft placed a huge emphasis on allowing this to truly act as a personal homepage for you. Currently the portal will showcase the weather in your location, traffic conditions, show your stocks watchlist and recipe collections, as well as offer topic-tracking to tailor your news.

Microsoft says that in the coming months it will launch MSN apps for Android and iOS, to “complement” its existing, “corresponding” Windows and Windows Phone apps. And since those Windows and Windows Phone apps once had Bing attached next to their current names, it is fair to say they will get MSN-ized in the near future. Using a Microsoft account, data (from MSN, Cortana, Bing and other services) will sync freely across devices.
