    Desktop Bing (as well as Google) allow you to do conversions and get the correct answer. However, on WP8, Bing search doesn't seem to work, which is a shame. If I type in "38USD to GBP", I get webpage search results, not the answer to the conversion. Am I missing something, or is this not a feature? I recently picked up a Lumia 521 as a hobby device, so I'm quite new to WP8.

    I do not have a Windows Phone 8 device, so I am not sure about Bing search currency conversion. However, there are a bunch of currency converter apps in the Windows Phone Store, including a number of free apps. Search results for "currency converter" | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Thanks, but I was hoping to avoid a separate app for that. It should just work in the Bing search.
