Microsoft completely redesigns Bing for Android, adds many search improvements


Bing Search for Android devices has less than 5 million downloads in the Google Play Store, which isn't much for a Microsoft app. Even so, the Redmond-based company has decided to lure more users to its search app by giving it a new look and adding new and improved features.

According to Microsoft, the new design of the app will allow users to search better with a simplified experience and refreshed color. Also, users will now get rich and clear results with enhanced restaurant reviews, songs, and more.

But there's more, as developers announced that Bing now gives users quick access to images, videos, and news search results. Furthermore, Microsoft's Bing for Android enables you to search for animated GIFs, discover trending ones, as well as save them on their devices.

It's also worth noting that Bing Search for Android now features options to customize font style, size, and background for an enhanced reading view experience. As expected, the update introduces a fair share of bug fixes, speed improvements, and polish.

Never bothered trying out Bing for Android. But I'm downloading it now, just for the curiosity of it.

Yeah, but it likely won't be as good as my experience with Google. :)

i use bing on PC for the points over Google, it acts stupid on random little things oceanically but not often. My girlfriend told me they removed the points on mobile last week as she wasn't seeing the icon. I am not sure if true or not or if they just moved things around.
