You can change language for News and Interests feed, and this post will guide you how it can be done. The May 2021 cumulative update for Windows brought a brand-new widget to the taskbar. Now, you can check the weather, read news headlines, follow traffic updates, stock information, and other relevant information without launching a browser.The News and Interests widget is now available globally, which means it supports different languages and shows content tailored to your location. Tip: you can disable open News and Interests on hover in Windows 10.

  2. Click the Manage Interests link in the upper-right corner. This action will open your default browser with an MSN settings page.
  3. Go to the Experience Settings.
  4. Find the Language and Content section.
  5. You can also directly go to that section by clicking the three-dot button in the upper-right corner next to the Manage Interests link. Click Language and Content.
  6. Select the language you want from the drop-down menu. This action will change the language not only for the News and Interests feed but also for the entire MSN Portal for your account.
  7. Now you need to refresh the feed. Again, open the News and Interests widget and find the Refresh button in the upper-right corner.
  8. Click it and wait for the widget to populate the content in the language you have just selected.

And that is how you change News and Interests feed language.
