Get instant access to relevant, timely news about customers, partners, competitors, and industries you work with. The News component includes articles from the past 30 days and is available on business accounts, contacts, leads, and the Home page. Articles come from reputable, English-language news sources.

If you come across an interesting news article, easily share it on Chatter. When you share an article from a record’s detail page, it’s posted to that record’s Chatter feed. When you share an article from Home or the News app, it’s posted to your Chatter profile for all your followers to see.
