      Thanks for the idea. We are working to gather all the information needed to deliver the enhanced query formulation and search results for Cortana and Search users on Windows.

      Keep your feedback coming, use it to improve Bing.

    • Custom search filtering on Bing/Cortana on mobile devices

      When using Bing/Cortana on WP, and Bing mobile app on other platforms, it would be a nice addition to provide custom search tools. Google offers custom search on their mobile search site, Bing should offer the same search tools on mobile. We already have search filtering on full Bing site, mobile should have it as well.

      • Show new Emails in Outlook

        Google has this feature. Why not Bing? As a outlook user, this would be amazing!!

        • I don't want to see my stocks on bing, but want to be able to see them in Cortana. Having separate preferences would be nice.

          Being able to customize cortana separately from what is going to appear on the bing home page would be great.

          • Less number of Ads= More user experience

            From attached screenshots see how user experience is affected when number of ads increases. As number of ads increases user has to scroll down to see the actual results.

            • News Area on Windows Phone in all countries

              On my Windows Phone (Lumia 830, denim) I have unlike to Desktop search no news area in search. There is only a news app, which is very slow when searching for different news topics.
              And starting an app is not as convinient as a direct integration in bing search. I don't know if there are countries with news integrated in bing search, but in the German Windows Phone version there is no news area in bing search.

                • Improve interface and information about sporting events

                  I'm referring to both scheduled, live and already played events. And please not only for football or baseball, consider also Europe and the rest of the world.

                  • Add Support For Natural Language Queries On The Web Which Are Already Supported By Cortana

                    You can ask the following question to Cortana and get answers from it.

                    "will it rain today?"

                    Even though Bing powers it, you won't get the same result when you type the question on the web interface.

                    • Add More Direct Answers Support

                      Bing already offers direct answers to some queries like cricket for cricket scores, weather for weather in the current location and others.. For natural language queries like 'how to write a cover letter', Bing doesn't support direct answers.

                      • Add Links To Buy Gadgets From Popular Retailers

                        Currently, Bing Gadget search displays reviews, specs, and other info. It would nice to have 'Buy' section with links to listings from various retailers like Amazon, BestBuy and others.

                          • Add Australian weather forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology

                            The current sources for Australian weather shown by Bing are rather inaccurate. As a result most Australians will not use Bing for weather information. I would like to see forecasts provided by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, which is a lot better.

                            • 中国区的首页页脚的“热点新闻”十分碍眼

                              首页下方的新闻往往是一些毫无意义的文章,比如今天的
                              ”中国第一狗仔“
                              ”月嫂年薪30万“
                              ”女婴眼里长白虫“
                              ”大熊猫深夜逛街“
                              ”中国游客泰国出家“
                              这些博取眼球的标题比比皆是,无异于鱼龙混杂的新闻小户,提供这些只会浪费时间的信息,想必有悖于”有求必应“的口号吧。
                              当这款微软打造的“帮助全球的个人和企业充分发挥自己的潜力”的工具变得比娱乐为主的百度更八卦时,真的会伤害一些忠诚用户的心

                                  A lot of the maps are outdated, especially for the rest of the world. Even major cities outside of the US like Toronto, etc. are completely outdated.

                                      Hello, thank you for your fantastic idea and comments. As a result of your suggestion, the team will investigate its feasibility and we’ll get back to you once we have an update. Please do continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

                                    • One domain per search

                                      Nothing is more annoying than seeing the same domain repeated in the search results. If a search engine believes it can display the best results amongst thousands of websites for a search query, surely it should be "smart" enough to pick the single best page from any given website to match a user's search. Be the first major search engine to accomplish this and you'll rule the search world!

                                        Hello, thanks for the suggestion. This is an area we are constantly try to improve. It will really help us if you can submit specific queries using the Bing Feedback link at bottom right of bing.com. Thanks and keep your ideas coming!

                                      • Create/edit places and routes in Bing Maps

                                        Provider greater detail at a lower level (think or use OpenStreetMap).

                                        The current Bing maps allows the importing of GPS/KML files which is great but it would be nice to be able to use something like OpenStreetMap and routing capabilities to create map routes for walking/running/cycling and even kayaking (check out Komoot.de).

                                        Allow places and routes to be private/public or shared between groups of people.

                                        Ensure settings are based upon the users locale by default (eg, metric for NZ rather than the current default to imperial.

                                        • Improve address resolution

                                          1. When someone searches for "leigh tce" also include "leigh terrace"

                                          2. When someone searches for "mayoral drive" also include "mayoral dr" in the results.

                                          3. When someone searches for an address, base it on the current map location (eg, a search for "mayoral dr" in Auckland, NZ if this is where the map is centred. Don't show me "Mayoral Gallery, Barcelona, Spain"
