Overview of AOL.com Features

AOL.com has been built around the people who use it and we've made sure every pixel is perfect. Over the years, we've evolved our homepage to help you simplify the web and your life, both of which only seem to get more complicated. Features of AOL.com include:

The News You Need

This is where AOL highlights feature stories, entertainment news, sports, and finance content, plus the latest national, world, and video news. These news items are hand-picked and updated by AOL's homepage editors, so this is content curation at its very best (as opposed to automated feed-driven content). This section of content occupies a prime top-left spot on AOL.com, which is an indication of how focused AOL is on offering the best news on the web (the news you need, when you need it).

Mail, Video, and Favorites

AOL Mail, Video, and Favorites! Quick access to your favorite essentials are just a click away at the top right of the screen next to the Search box.
