  1. 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!

    • Develop a public transit answer for web using One Bus Away

      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.

          • 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)

              • 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…

                  Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. As you’ve noticed, not all members see the same rewards at any given time, and we’re currently working on bringing more options to the redemption center. We’ll update you here with more news as we make improvements, and we hope you’ll continue to share your feedback as Bing Rewards evolves.

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                          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.

                        • 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!

                                  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.

                                    No import option

                                    Since you have no section to ask explicit questions (like google does and its great)... How can I import KMZ's or KML's? No import option is available when I sign in.

                                    Would like to use it for a project as we currently use google maps and google earth but like your imaging better.

                                      • 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.
