Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service News website has undergone an overhaul in the last week with a fresh new look, and to go with it their Android app has also gotten an update.

It’s not a new app, so if you’re one of the more than 100,000 users of the app, you’ll probably have already updated or be about to get updated to the new app. The app has several new features listed in the What’s New section:

SBS News all new app features include:
– Browse, read and watch news in video
– Get instant breaking and daily news notifications that you can control
– Watch live streaming of news events and SBS World News bulletin
– Swipe through news articles for easier navigation
– Get SBS News social media updates from within the app
– Discover SBS network programs with a full TV guide
Help us improve by rating the app and sending your feedback to [email protected]

The big news, apart from the new look, is the updates that will notify you when breaking news happens. SBS has tailored these quite nicely, but you can also switch them off if you want to. Another major feature is the ability to watch news, including the SBS World News bulletin within the app.

For the social media junkies, you can also check out the social media profiles for SBS News within the app.

Of course for the browser warriors determined not to add another app to their app drawer or homescreen you can always check out SBS News at www.sbs.com.au/news/
