Samsung Launches Samsung News, the Everyday News App for Millions of Galaxy Device Users
Samsung is launching the Samsung News app. Consumers will enjoy a breadth of trusted news sources to create an everyday news experience in one convenient place. With morning and evening briefings and custom feeds, users can get the daily news they want from Samsung News.
Launching in beta, Samsung News will be rolled out to U.S. Samsung Galaxy users as an update to Samsung Free. Users who already have the Samsung Free app on their device will see the icon change to Samsung News starting on April 18, 2023, when their apps are updated. All other users will be able to access the app by downloading directly from the Samsung Galaxy Store. At first the feature will be available on select phones, and in the coming weeks, it will roll out to all addressable devices.
Samsung News will initially provide access to news content from a wide range of partners, including Bloomberg Media, CNN, Fortune, Fox News, Glamour, GQ, HuffPost, Money, Newsweek, New York Post, Parade, POLITICO, Refinery29, Reuters, Salon, Slate, Sports Illustrated, The Daily Beast, TheStreet, USA TODAY, and Vice. Additional news sources will be added to the app over time through Samsung’s syndication partner, upday.
