Having just subscribed to News+, I just realized something.
In Safari if you hit a paywall you can use the share button to open the page in News. But in something like Chrome / Brave / etc., not so much.
That said, if you have Choosy, you can tell Choosy that “News” is a browser - which enables opening links in Choosy from Chrome / Brave / etc. by right-clicking the link and picking the Choosy option from the popup menu.
Thinking this might help somebody out.
