  1. Change web search results page interface

    I think that the web results page can look better. Maybe a consistent banner across the top of the page would be a good idea, which is still visible whilst scrolling (as is already in Bing Images)

      • Combine Bing Rewards into main Bing app

        Instead of having Bing Rewards be its own separate app, there would be a better experience if I didn't have to jump between two apps just to see my credit balance

          Thank you for the feedback. You can use the Bing rewards app for rewards specific features like special app install offers, push notifications to keep you updated about the latest in rewards, one tap refer a friend. We are also working on more features to make the Bing Rewards app the premier rewards experience.

          Along with these, we are working to link the two apps so switching between rewards related activities and search is seamless. We will definitely keep this website updated on the progress of that feature.

        • Steam Gift Cards

          I know this has been said (and declined) before, but i plead that this will increase bing activity.

          I usually switch back and forth between Bing and the-search-engine-who-shall-not-be-named, and this tends to happen when a game I'm playing happens to have a cash shop or can be purchased with Bing points. I do firmly believe Bing rewards having a Steam gift card option, Bing's user rate will increase (perhaps dramatically). It can be a very beneficial relationship that can be built.

          Please reconsider your stance on this.

          • It would be cool to see a multiplier for points across frequently used windows devices (Windows Phone, Surface, Xbox One, etc.)

            This could act as a very cool loyalty and new buyer program for users loyal to the Windows brand. A small point multiplier ( ie 1x, 1.25x, 1.75x) if you have and are using Bing rewards across your Windows branded devices. Windows Phones, Surface Tablets, Xbox One, Xbox 360, etc.

              Thank you for the feedback, great idea! We are looking into adding more ways to earn and more points for our loyal users who use other Microsoft services as well. For example, today, you can earn credits by buying a product from the Microsoft online store. Coming soon are more credits for users who use Bing rewards on MSN. We’ll keep adding more such avenues like mentioned in the post and keep this website updated on the status of these.

            • Offer a custom site search like Google does

              Google offers a custom search engine feature to add to websites. I despise Google and don't want this on my site. Please offer this for Bing! Googles: https://www.google.com/cse/

                Thanks for the idea. Currently we do not offer a similar solution. A similar result can be built using the Bing Search API (https://datamarket.azure.com/dataset/5BA839F1-12CE-4CCE-BF57-A49D98D29A44), however this does require more work than the simpler solution you noted from our competitor. While we can’t promise to build a similar solution, this request will be added to our list of requests discussed with management as we make decisions on where to invest resources next.

                Please continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

              • Instant answers

                I'd really like to be able to type a question in Bing Search and get an awnser in the search page. For example, when I type "How old is Obama" or "How many inches in a centimeter" in Google, it awnsers me on the search page with a nice card containing the awnser. Really convenient and something I really miss in Bing.

                Cortana can do it, why can't Bing?

                  Bing can do it, too, we just haven’t taught Bing how to do it in Dutch yet. It’s on our radar, though. Over the next couple of months, we’ll roll out support for these types of questions for a handful of new languages, with many more to follow in 2016. Thanks and keep your feedback coming!

                    • Rewards Tracking in Cortana

                      Its extremely easy to view/track/spend my reward points when logged into my outlook account and using Bing as my homepage in a web browser. Please make a Cortana category in the notebook where I can choose for those functions to be in my daily glance when clicking the magnifying glass icon on my windows phone. Its not effortless to see where you stand on Bing mobile searches vs desktop searches or anything in mobile as it launches a web page that lacks any detail. Encourage users to use Bing! Click icon and Cortana tells you what contest you could enter…

                        • Support Farsi (Persian) language

                          Support Farsi language in Bing search engine like Google, Microsoft has more experience in Farsi services for Iranian and other Country with Farsi language. Iranian like Microsoft services and devices like Windows, Lumia, Surface, OneDrive, Skype and etc. but Bing search engine it's not good as google in Farsi searching. Please support Farsi language like as English language in Bing search engine.

                            • New design + concept

                              Hi,

                              The Bing Home page is perfect and the new Maps Preview is just awesome!!!

                              But now Bing Team need to update the design of other pages like "Web", "News" and "Translate".

                              WEB :

                              - Remove ads or weird links on top
                              - Move "associated search" at the bottom or bottom right instead of the middle
                              - Move Videos/Images result on the right section with the possibility to close them (like you can close all your search on Maps Preview)
                              - Use the same nav bar as the new Maps Preview
                              - Use another kind of blue for results
                              This…

                                Hi Nicholas

                                Thank you for taking the time to create the two design concepts, as well as share your ideas with us. We have shared these with the relevant Bing teams that cover these different features to make a determination on what makes sense to implement. Once we have an update, we will share it with you all.
                                Please keep coming back to this site and share other ideas you might have.

                              • Ability to filter out Huffington Post spam on Bing News feed

                                Seems like half the news stories on Bing News are Huffington Post political editorials. They always dominate the top story section, with editorial articles. Please give us the ability to filter out "news" domains that are abusive and do not report actual news.

                                • 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.

                                    • Add a CenterManuallyChanged event to MapControl

                                      It would be really helpful if the new XAML MapControl provided an event that fired when the user has finished manually moving the map position. This would allow developers to take an action when the user has re-positioned the map. Right now, the only event available for this is CenterChanged, which fires continuously as the user is moving the map. Hooking into this event is not performant and there's no easy way to determine when the user has finished the move.

                                      • When I use the Image search I'd like to click and image and go to the website, not the URL for the image.

                                        Clicking an image in the search results should take you to the website, not the URL for the image.
