    Does anyone else like the information boxes that popup on Bing search about the background of the day in the US? At the moment I have to change to US regional settings to get them, and would love to get them natively in the UK....any opinions?

    Here is a pic of what I mean... https://www.dropbox.com/s/8pw3nvirsw...to%20UK%21.jpg

    Please vote for the idea here: Info boxes for Bing background in UK €“ Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone

    That's quite impossible since the pic of the day sometimes shows a USA day (or Chinesse). Having it available for UK as well would mean a UK team and I doubt there will be. Just change your regional settings. Easy as that!

    Funnily enough the UK Bing image used to have those boxes, but they stopped doing it about a year or so ago I think. When I first got my WP (Nov 2012) the Bing image on my phone had those boxes.

    Someone probably started a Boycott Bing hastag because the Bing Boxes were too USA centric. The easiest solution is to just take away the toys if the kids want to throw a fit that they got the wrong color.

    I think creating the issue then creating a second account to upvote your issue is a little too much though, haha. Especially when you don't even change the user name.

    If you click the little symbol in the bottom left of the bing screen, you get some basic info about the picture..

    Thanks for the replies guys, means a lot!

    @earthname thanks, I did know this but the extra little boxes really bring the picture to life I think, and tbh I would rather have american like photos with boxes than uk without. So like @iAdrian23 pointed out, I have changed my region settings, but it means the store is in dollars, and when I bing search it always searches with a US orientated focus, unless anyone knows a way to fix these issues, I am torn between what to do!


    Cheers
