Yahoo News App Guide

Want to keep your audience up to date with the latest news or share headlines about your favorite topics but don’t have the time to constantly refresh the page or flip the channel?

With Fugo’s Yahoo News app you can do just that! Forget having to constantly manually update your feed. With Fugo all you have to do is install the Yahoo News app, choose the topic you want to display on your screen, then sit back as Fugo automatically pulls the latest headlines for you.

With the app you can:

  • Choose a Yahoo News topic - top headlines, finance, sports, entertainment, or more
  • Choose  a duration for the app inside a playlist
  • Choose the delay (in seconds) between headlines
  • Customize the summary, headers and background color
  • Save the changes and watch them instantly update on your screen

Here’s how to get started:

1.Install the Yahoo News App


1.1 Log into your Fugo account. If you don’t have one, you can create one here and start your 14 day free trial!

1.2 Once you’ve logged in/created an account, on the top navigation bar, click “Apps.”

1.3 Scroll down until you see the app or to save time you can search for it in the search bar at the top of the store.

1.4 Once you’ve found it click “Try App” to create a new playlist with the app!

Now that you’ve added the app to the playlist, let’s take a look at what’s next: how to customize the app settings!

2. Customize the Yahoo News App


2.1 A pop-up window will appear where you can customize the app’s headline and appearance settings.

2.2 First select the Yahoo News topic you want to display headlines for - top headlines, finance, sports, politics, etc...

2.3 Next, you can set the duration for your app (how long it will run inside of a playlist before the next piece of content.)

2.4 Now you can decide how much of a delay to have between headlines by setting the seconds in “Next Post Delay.”

2.5 You can change the look of your app by setting the headline, summary, and background color.

2.6 When you’re finally done, click “Save Changes” at the bottom right of the window.

Hint: If you want to change ESPN’s app settings at any point, just click the “Setup” button on the app’s panel on the playlist page.

Almost done! Now that the app is all set up just the way you want it, let’s take a look at the finishing touches: building your playlist and publishing it!

3. Build Your Playlist

3.1 Name your playlist (we suggest making it relevant to prevent confusion from other playlists as you make more.)

3.2 Click “Select Screens” to choose the screens or screen groups where you want your playlist published.

3.3 If you want, you can add more content to the playlist by selecting “Add More Content” and choosing other apps/uploading media.

3.4 Last but not least, you can change the schedule of your content by choosing the start and end date, and clicking “Week Schedule” to adjust the days and times your content will be displayed.

4. Publish Your Playlist

4.1 Once you have everything set up the way you want it, click “Publish” in the top right hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.

4.2 If you aren’t quite ready to publish your screen, you can click “Finish Later” and come back to the playlist at any time.
