The beta version of Microsoft's Social News app is now available for Windows Phone users to create and publish news right from their smartphone.
Last year, Microsoft launched a social news app for iOS users, however, it was mainly focused on discovering news about celebrities and didn't offer the ability to publish anything. Now, the company has launched the beta version of Social News which will allow users to publish content from their Window Phone devices.
According to the Windows Phone store description of the app, Social News allows users to create, edit and publish news items among friends and nearby people. It also mentions that professional media partners can pick up these articles and help the user reach a wider audience.
Like most social apps of recent times, users can follow each other and get the latest posts right in their news feeds.
Windows Phone 8 users can grab the free app here.
