The News is where all new information within My Singing Monsters can be found. This includes, but is not limited to, promotions, new merchandise, system messages and links to the MSM social media accounts. Promotions such as Daily Deals, a Rare Duet, and special events are also located in the News tab. To view an article in the News, simply tap "View" to the right of the article.
Articles in the News are classified by five different symbols: the star, the hourglass, the newspaper, the traffic cone, and social. The star symbol designates the release of something new such as a new monster or MSM merchandise. Articles with the hourglass symbol mean the promotion is only for a limited amount of time. The newspaper symbol is used for player polls and MSM gear. The traffic cone symbol is used for system messages that indicate technical changes such as the discontinuation of Community Codes. The social symbol means the article relates to something community-oriented such as community competitions. The MSM social media accounts are also designated by the social symbol.
On some devices, the News button can become "buggy" and not respond or be slow to player command.
