News channel Al Jazeera has launched a Windows Phone 8 app that will provide full-featured news from the most popular sections of the Al Jazeera English and Arabic websites as free access to 24-hour live broadcasts.
The Windows Phone 8 apps were built in partnership with Nokia and Microsoft. The app receives minute-by-minute information updates as well as a My Topics feature that allows Windows Phone 8 users to personalise the way they receive the news.
“We are delighted that Al Jazeera’s multi-award winning news and current affairs coverage is now available on Windows Phone 8 devices,” said Moeed Ahmed, head of new media at Al Jazeera Media Network. “The launch of the Windows Phone 8 apps comes after our successful Blackberry 10 and Android Tablet launch. Today’s announcement re-emphasises our commitment to ensuring that people can consume our content whenever and wherever they want, whether it is on a tablet, mobile device, PC or connected TV.”
