How Do I Import My RSS Subscriptions From a OPML File Into the News Feed App

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently using a third-party application for reading RSS.

    However I would be happy if I could export my subscriptions and import them to the News Metro app (or what is official terminology for this feature?).

    Is it possible to do that? I am more than happy with Metro RSS solution.

    Thank you.


    Well this is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given...

    If it isn't available in the Settings for the app then it isn't possible.
    Keep in mind that these apps were developed by students and may not be as
    fully featured as you might like.

  • I didn't know that. Has MSFT run a contest? These apps are very well done!

    Okay let that be a wish to the "What would I want to get in the future Windows" list/

    If it was easy, the hardware people would take care of it.
