New Delhi, June 9, 2016: The China-based UCWeb, a  part of the Alibaba Group,  claims  80 million active users in India, making it  arguably the most popular browser on mobile devices.  To further strengthen its connections in this country,  it has  just launched  a UC News  app exclusively for its  Indian consumers.
The app  aggregates content based on  topics  trending on Facebook and Twitter. It also offers customized content subscription. For example during cricket matches, one can set the feeds to cricket news and remove them once the series is over. The app covers and curates content in 20 different categories -- general  news, cricket, technology, entertainment, movies, lifestyle, health, humour, etc.
Currently available in English and Hindi, the company also has plans to launch in other regional languages. UCWeb  is also  partnering with other content providers like bloggers and opinion leaders. The UC News app is now available on GooglePlay and 9Apps.
The UC Browser has also been upgraded with UC Cricket and UC Entertainment.  For UC cricket the company has partnered with cricbuzz, Twitter, and Bing, who will provide cricket related news and trending stories.
