The official Microsoft News app updated on Apple’s iOS devices today with a new option that allows users to choose which layout design they want the app to display their news in.

There are three layouts to choose from; Standard, Compact, or Test-Only. The Standard layout features a strong focus on featured images and a more visual design while the Compact version uses smaller images, and the Text-Only option removes images completely.  The new layout option is available within the app’s settings.
