I downloaded the CU preview yesterday & there’s a new ‘kid’ in town - the News & Interests entry in the taskbar. It’s easily seen as it’s a yellow/orange crescent moon.
This shows News, Weather, travel & Entertainment amongst other things. It can be removed from the taskbar/Notification area by right clicking on the taskbar & unticking the news & interests entry.

Another useless 'innovation' from M$, who probably collects commission to provide links to selected sites. I have my own set of bookmarks thank you.

You don't have to use it, easily turned off, same as the People tool that was added some time back. The News & Interests tool is customizable and looks to be a handy and quick way to grab news and weather, stocks, or whatever is chosen, all without needing to open a browser or other app. It's a welcome addition within feature update 21H1.
