    Microsoft improves Bing image search for Android and iOS

    I feel so special as Windows Phone user.
    Good. That's what Microsoft is aiming for.

    What on earth are MS up to?
    Improving Bing image search for those OSes? Let's count the number of iOS/Android users we know who use Bing. And use it for image search. Hmmmmm, if we hit double-figures I'll choke.
    If this isn't a massive, massive hint of what MS thinks is the future of Windows on phone handsets, I don't know what is.

    Guys... When Microsoft improves Bing, it automatically gets improved for us because Bing is built into the OS... Unlike Android and IOS. The upgrade they got was something we probably had for awhile now without realizing it.

    Edit: Or not. Next time, I should read the article that's posted.... Darn those OS's getting cool stuff before us (though I bet it'll be in an upcoming Windows 10 update, since again, Bing is built into the OS, as one of the core features).

    This is getting intense levels of facepalm if people are genuinely upset that Microsoft is making Bing better.

    Considering market share, the absolute numbers are probably higher on iOS/Android than they are on WP.

    It't not just problem about BING. WP gets all Microsoft apps last.

    OK... I have not once thus far weighed in on the doom and gloom side of any of the myriad threads about iOS/Android get preferential Microsoft App treatment...

    Until now.

    They just gave me back more than 30 image results after taking it away fro no reason. Don't get me wrong... I'm happy to be able to scroll more than 30 images on my phone again via Bing.

    But the new feature shown in the video? That is a "wow" feature that should have unveiled on WP first.



    Whoever put that on iOS/Android before Windows Phone or Windows Desktop (IE) needs to be sacked and NO GOLDEN PARACHUTE.
