  1. Add a "One year" option to the search results filter

    Currently, search results can be filtered for "All", "Past 24 hours", "Past week", and "Past month". There really needs to be an option for the "Past year".

      Thanks for the suggestion. We are considering adding “One year” to the search results filter for Web search. In the meantime, please use Custom Date Range as a workaround. Thanks and do keep sending us your ideas!

    • Promote the cool and unique things Bing does in a dedicated box on the Bing homepage.

      Bing does a lot of cool things that not many people are aware of like having a guitar tuner or Bing predicting sport games. These cool and exciting features will help Bing get noticed but the problem is not many people know about these features because all these cools stuff are only promoted in the Explore section of Bing instead of being promoted on the homepage. I believe that Bing should dedicate a small box next to search bar to promote these cool little features. People using Bing would start to take notice at these features when they see this…

      • Support Laos

        It's been a long time we don't have any option but Google Maps and I would like to use another due to the lack support from Google to Windows platform. If you could some support in Vientiane for the start.

        Plus both Bing maps and Here maps are not support Laos.

          • Will Microsoft Rewards ever be avaliable in other countries?

            Microsoft Rewards should be avaliable in major countries such as those supported by Cortana.

            • Re-brand Bing in to Cortana.

              This would be good for a few reasons.

              1) Bing has gained a little traction but Cortana has gained more love. To make Bing into Cortana might bring more people to using it. It would be slow because Google is still the big cheese but a lot of what Bing does is pretty great, people have to see it and to see it they have to want to try and and I think re-branding it into Cortana would make people want to try it.

              2) You could give a new option to the home page. That option would be to…

                Thanks for the feedback. These are really interesting ideas, and we have passed them on to the feature team for further investigation and feasibility.

                Regarding 3) this will take a bit more time as the team investigates the feasibility of voice search and Cortana inside Bing. However, you do currently have the ability to conduct a voice search in Windows 10 using the Task Bar search box (see the attached image for more details). Again, thank you for all the great ideas, and do keep them coming, so we can create an even better experience for you on Bing.

                With regard to rebranding Bing to Cortana, that is definitely an interesting idea, and something that has come up in team discussions. However, it is not something that we will be pursuing for various business reasons. But please, do continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

                • Improve local search

                  Add better suport for local search; it's the only reason I hate bing, on computer or my lumia; I want local results first, not the ones for e.g. hungary (i'm in croatia).

                    • Have real time traffic alerts like Accidents or police activity

                      Having realtime traffic alerts like Accidents or police activity is very productive.

                      You should use:
                      WAZE -Traffic App
                      Here- Traffic Map
                      TotalTraffic- traffic
                      etc.

                      Google now has WAZE traffic alerts and i think that wouldbe very productive!

                      You should also use Twitter or facebook to scan posts and tweets fot traffic alerts. Thanks!

                          • Keep search bar on top when scrolling through search results

                            This would increase productivity since after scrolling through result and not finding the desired page one would like to change the search query and for that one needs to scroll all the way back up. Why not keep the search bar up, glued to the address bar, in a minuscule way...

                            Ex: see picture attached; I would like to change the search query "atnt" to "myatnt", and not to have to scroll up.

                                Imagine this!!!

                                your personal bing page with all your favorite information like below pulled in together in a page :
                                News on Windows 10
                                MSFT,APPL,GOOG stock
                                Images of Jennifer Lawrence
                                Weather of your fav place
                                Prediction or Schedule of your fav sports
                                Traffic to your work
                                Videos of funny cats etch

                                All these in a magazine or attractive layout may be topped with your favorite picture as cover or in faded background.

                                ***The idea is not Google now or like 'my topics'.

                                But presenting all your favorite things you search daily/often in a cute layout - doing so bringing bing…

                                • Bing Translation

                                  I would like to get more Bing Translation on words because words have more than 1 meaning most of the time and also Verb Noun and a sentence of example how to use the word correctly would be nice also

                                  Moreover I would like to be able to minimize Bing Desktop app to the system tray icon and be able to Translate from the App it self

                                  also to auto change wallpaper when I login to Windows to the Image of the day and be able to browse all the old pictures that Bing have been since it lunch

                                  Thanks

                                    Thanks for the input. Great ideas regarding Bing Translation. This is very much like something we’re already working on. Keep your feedback coming, use it to improve Bing.

                                    We would like to ask you to enter a separate idea for the wallpaper request. Thanks!

                                    I take the bus everywhere and use One Bus Away to look up arrival times, route maps, etc. But the OBA app is awkward and requires a few extra steps to display the info I need. I think Bing could do a better job showing me exactly what I need, based on a single query - especially using voice (instead of typing on the go)!

                                    • I think it would be nice if on certain days you could randomly be entered to win prizes just for using bing that day.

                                      It would be a nice surprise for regular users if one day they won something and wasn't expecting it.

                                      • Option to play video in a small window while browsing

                                        Provide an option to play a video in a small screen that hovers on top of the video results so that a user can continue to browse while the video is still visible. The visibility can be made available between tabs too so that if a user has multiple tabs open for different things, the video will still be viewable.

                                        • Don't offer only Microsoft products in Bing Rewards

                                          Your program of offering rewards points for using Bing is what persuaded me to switch from Google to Bing (what you had in mind I assume). I have been using Bing for more than a year now and have redeemed points for several Amazon gift cards. My wife (who only uses Google) finally caught on and decided to sign up for the program. But when we looked at the available rewards it was Microsoft products only (in which she has no interest). On my list though, the Amazon cards are still available. If the program is changing to allow new…
