Last month, Yahoo acquired news summarizing app Summly for $30 million and today announced that it has incorporated Summly’s technology into its newly redesigned Yahoo app.
The new Yahoo app uses natural language algorithms and machine learning to offer up quick summaries of news articles, which are now served up in a non-stop stream within the app. Yahoo’s redesign focuses on providing an endless newsfeed to iPhone readers.
In addition to improving the design of the app with Summly, Yahoo has improved its search experience with enhanced video and image searches. Users will also find new social and personalization features, such as categories that can be selected and retained cross-device with a Yahoo ID login.
