Bing search app for iOS & Android gets new music, video & map features
Bing's making it easier to find song titles, as well as add Netflix and Amazon movie titles to your watchlist on mobile.
Bing has released new updates to its search app for iOS and Android, adding new music and video features, along with more map options.
The updated version 6.7.2 Bing search app will now play a video without sound directly in search results with the lyrics listed below the video — a feature that has been available on Bing desktop. The app also includes a new Music page listing trending songs and artists.
According to a report on the Android Community website, Bing’s search app can also give the title to a song being played: “In case you’re looking for a specific song, you can use the Bing Search app by typing the name of the song or if something is playing, it will tell you what it is.”
In addition to updates around music, users can add movie titles to their Netflix and Amazon Prime watch lists from the app’s Movies page.
Bing has also added the option for users to pick their preferred map app for directions.
Other updates include a refreshed “reading mode” to make news pages “more enjoyable” and the ability to sign in with your Microsoft account to see search history on other logged-in devices.
