  1. Your news is too left leaning.

    I read various sources, and Bing simply takes a side.

      This is a fairly tough challenge as everybody has different judgement on political tendency. While we guarantee that our algorithm has no preference on either end of political spectrum, we are also making a special design to provide opinions from both sides on a particular topic or news story. We will also build the personalization feature to use your press preference in your Live profile to return you the news articles, which can help in this scenario too.

    • Use rewards for XBox games and apps

      Integrate bing rewards with Xbox for discounts or free games and apps. Could be similar to Xbox monthly deals where certain games are discounted or free. This is better than redeeming for a digital Xbox gift card as it will maximize the points value and push apps and games Xbox wants. The digital gift cards need a lot of reward points for very few dollars.

      • Let me add markings to a map

        When I'm sending directions to a friend, I like to use Bing Maps to help me get the driving directions or share a map.

        It would be cool if I could circle things on the map before I send it, or make notes to help them through the tricky turns ("don't miss this stop sign!") or to give advice ("This is the best place to park"), right on the map itself.

          • Make the images in the Bing homepage be the background of the search results page instead of a white background

            This idea would make Bing a lot more aesthetically pleasing than Google and would make Bing unique. The only issue would be that the colors of the images on the homepage may blend with the text so it would be best to slightly fade the images so that users can properly read the text in the search results.

              Hi Bob

              Very interesting idea.
              Just wanted to let you know that we have shared this idea with the team. As you noted in your idea, there may be an issue with readability of the search results, so we will need to evaluate the feasibility of this idea before proceeding further. We will keep you updated, so please do come back and check the status, as well as submit other ideas.

                  Thanks for the feedback, we are currently looking at adding more levels and achievements which could be used for extra discounts on certain gift cards. We don’t have an ETA for this feature yet but will keep this site updated.

                  • Option to mark specific search result(s) as most relevant to searched terms to improve algorithms

                    Many times, my searches are not well interpreted. Maybe a way to provide feedback on results that Microsoft can use to improve Bing's search algorithms? E.g. make a button for the user to tag a specific result or two as directly relevant to the search terms. Maybe this information could be helpful in improving search algorithms.

                    Ex. I searched for, "switch from word to pages." What I'm looking for are tips on switching from MS Word to Pages. The entire first page of results is about changing the order of pages in a word document.

                    • Surface the status of LGBT laws in search

                      When users search for "LGBT rights in Japan", Bing should show users the breakdown of laws in that country. Or specifically, when a user searches queries like "Is gay marriage legal in Canada?"

                      I run http://equaldex.com, a crowdsourced LGBT rights database that includes laws in every country, state, and province. Data is community- and moderator-verified.

                      The site has a private API that Bing could use, or just crawl the public-facing pages: Example: http://equaldex.com/region/canada

                      Especially with the amount of laws changing in the past few years, this would likely be useful to a lot of users. Google doesn't offer anything…

                                • Force SafeSearch with IP Address

                                  Google has a separate IP address that will resolve search quarries with SafeSearch only. This can easily allow administrators to redirect DNS searches for "Google.com" to the SafeSearch enforced Google website. This provides a wonderfully effective means of explicit content filtering. All devices under that router can be maximally protected from undesired search results. Redirecting is easy for the home user using DD-WRT or Tomato router firmware.

                                  I would like Bing to implement this effective solution. Otherwise there is no way to securely protect users and family.

                                  I encourage users to also use OpenDNS Family Shield to protect other content…

                                    Hi everyone

                                    Just a quick updated to let you know that the Bing Team is investigating an endpoint that will provide only strict search results but we do not have an ETA as yet. Will post an update once we have one.
                                    Thanks and please continue to provide other ideas you might have to make Bing a great search engine.

                                  • Add local tv schedule to bing as a preview search.

                                    I would like to quick search tonights listings for tv without going to each local network or the paper. They are listed in the local paper and it would not be that difficult to aquire and list with a network click or live link.

                                      • Add Amber Alert Integration to web searches

                                        When you search the name of the Child missing then add an AMBER ALERT INTEGRATION LIKE GOOGLE. Or search the state then add the weather, traffic, local news, weather alerts, and amber alerts if there is any.

                                          We’re working on improving the triggering logic for AMBER Alerts in the Unites States and Canada. Expect to see improvements here over the next couple of months. Thanks and keep sending us your suggestions!

                                        • Too small in a high resolution screen (4k)!

                                          The application is too small for my laptop, especially the font size. Please add support for high resolution screen!
