News are messages sent to everyone in the organization through the OpenBlue Companion application. Users can view news and, in cases of emergency, mark themselves safe. Emergency news is marked by an exclamation mark in a red triangle.

On the home screen, tap News to view important updates across your organization, including emergency news.
