What is Yandex.Zen

Zen is the Yandex personal recommendation service. It selects news articles, blog posts, and other publications that you may find interesting. The selection is based on your browsing history and stated preferences. Recommendations start appearing in your browser once there's enough material to analyze and base selections on.

This service is used in desktop version of Yandex.Browser, as well as in mobile versions for iPhone, Android smartphones and tablets.

Recommended articles show up on your screen under Tableau when you open a new tab.

To read an entire publication, select the recommendation in the feed, and the text opens on a new tab.

  • If you like it, click in the bottom left corner of the recommendation card, and Zen will recommend more articles similar to this one.
  • If you don't like it, click in the bottom left corner of the recommendation card, and Zen will recommend fewer articles similar to this one.
  • If you don't want to see articles from the given site, click in the bottom left corner of the recommendation card, and then click Block website <site address>.
