Microsoft has launched a major 2.0 update for the News Pro iPhone app. It adds a Groups feature along with a personal news bot, Rowe.

Microsoft says:

Other than searching and tracking news, the bot can also chat about news all day long. Upload your picture to the bot and it'll find news subjects that look like you.

The new Groups feature allows users to discuss news stories with their friends:

The app automatically groups users together based on where they work. It also groups users by their interests, skills and industries and recommends those groups to users. Next, the app chooses articles based on social networks and user groups and recommends this curated content to corresponding groups. You can also look for people you are interested in and follow their public posts.
