China Daily app’s global edition was launched yesterday, providing a new option for its broad international readership. Users will need to upgrade the app to the latest version before trying out the new edition.
The move, a first among China’s English news apps, came on the same day as the debut of the national English-language newspaper’s global edition.
China Daily says the new edition, a 16-page broadsheet, will offer more news analysis, financial and economic news, in-depth features and opinion pieces. The same quality journalism will also be accessible through the app’s new version, offering mobile users a sleek interface and personalized reading experience.
Readers can choose China or Global Edition in the Personal Center, the first step to customize their own newsfeed.
After entering the My News section, readers can create their own newsfeed by following the topics that interest them.
Aside from news reporting, the app also revamped its Service section, which caters to the app’s growing body of international users who want to travel, study and work in China. The section is a full guide to everything, from visa policies to cultural events.
