Microsoft Updates Bing Desktop Adding Inline Search and New Apps

Microsoft’s Bing Desktop has been installed by more than 10 million Windows users. Company has refreshed it with skew of new features to supplement convenience for local and internet search. It has backward compatibility for Windows XP, Vista and Win-7. The Bing Team has announced to add Inline Search which enables users search internet for text, paragraph or PDF file by just selecting and dragging over Bing Icon. Addition of new inline search option takes care of tiresome tasks that you do before for achieving same results. For example I am reading a book and got phrase which I need to search. I copy it, paste in browser and see results. Now with Bing-desktop you get ease of omitting intermediate steps and directly enjoy final results. Output is shown as preview in a small popup window inside the existing application.

Facebook app for Windows is improved with new features. It gives instant notification right on your desktop. It keeps you connected with your friends and family during your tough schedule. Another series of apps are reviewed like Weather and News app. Weather application gives you information about your local area (detected automatically). It gives real time updates about your area on refurnished Bing-Desktop. No matter you are busy and unaware of scenario out your air-conditioned room; you will still have view with eye of weather app.

News app has update of multi-column tabular view. It keeps you informed with latest trending news from all categories. Its side panel stretches preview of images and stories in nutshell. You can choose the best category that interests you most. As a technical expert, I do not see it useful feature. There are many reasons for it. First desktop and changing Bing wallpapers are failed to attract audience for boosting searching engine Bing traffic. Desktop apps for such features are many in current windows market and current update does not any innovatory difference.

Google stay ahead in search engine market with above 67% share which Bing comes at 2nd number and have only 17% part worldwide. Microsoft continues to push its product which can lower customer towards it search products but this strategy has proved unsuccessful since many years. Microsoft Bing Desktop is available for download with all these updates from today. It is only a click away for you to be part of 10+ million existing users.
