Microsoft is planning big changes to its Edge browser, but the Chromium redesign is still off in the future. For now, the Android and iOS versions of Edge have gotten an update that adds a feature called “NewsGuard.” It’s off by default, but when enabled it will tell you whether or not a news website is trustworthy. Naturally, some sites are not happy with the results.
NewsGuard is not part of Microsoft—it’s a startup based in New York that aims to fight misinformation.
Microsoft Edge now warning users about fake news (since y’all were too naive to spot it yourselves) was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
