Dailyhunt launches news-in-brief app in nine languages
MUMBAI: Content aggregator Dailyhunt has launched Newzly, a news-in-brief app for Android users. The app offers a summary of trending news articles across multiple genres such as regional, international, entertainment, business, sports and technology. The content is available in nine languages English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Marathi, Bengali, and Gujarati.
Newzly presents a summary of stories in a simple minimalistic design, in the form of cards that can be swiped horizontally to seamlessly sift through the subsequent news. The app allows users to read the full article by simply swiping vertically. With Newzly, consumers can also customize their feed basis topics of interest. Users can bookmark cards and share stories on social media including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
Commenting on the launch of Newzly, Dailyhunt founder & CEO Virendra Gupta said, “India has a large local language population with diverse needs and the launch of Newzly is part of our expansion of the product portfolio to serve those needs. Newzly app is designed to serve the needs of users who have less time on hand and wants to stay updated with the summary of major breaking and trending news. This app is currently available in 9 languages and we are likely to expand it into more languages in the coming months.”
Newzly adds to Dailyhunt’s product portfolio, which also launched Dailyhunt Lite, its PWA in November last year and partnered with Vuclip and YuppTV to offer original videos and Live TV on its platform.
