Bing for Windows Phone 8 to update soon with simpler, richer results

Advertisement

We’ve seen how Microsoft has been working on significantly improving the experience of Bing on the browser. The process has taken them a while, but it’s clear that the service is significantly easier to use, and at the same time the results provided include more added value than many of its competitors. Obviously it was only a matter of time before this level of overhaul came to Windows Phone, and the changes just got detailed.

The new Bing for Windows Phone 8 will reduce the search filters to just three, but will also provide you with more relevant content on the first screen, instead of requiring you to dig further. In the same manner as Google Search, Bing will also provide you with additional information for Flight schedules, movies and word definitions. Infinite scrolling will also reach those in search of photos, and these thumbnails are auto-sized.

Sadly, after giving you all the goods, here comes the catch. The update is not ready yet. US Bing users will see these changes in the next couple of weeks, and International users will follow. Yeah, we know, the next couple of weeks could be a long time, so don’t get your hopes up so quick.
