The new widgets can be used to quickly get information about things like weather, news, the stock market, sports results and traffic. Users can also mark their personal interests so that the feed is adapted accordingly. The widget also makes it possible to see the current weather forecast directly in the taskbar.
The new widget is expected to appear for all users in the coming weeks. Users who are not interested in it can choose to turn it off.
