  1. search using an image

    I'd like to submit an image & have bing search based on selected image in that object. If I take an image of a car, search for that car. If I take a picture of a prepared meal, show me a search result related to that meal. Etc.

      Hey everyone,

      Happy New Year! We wanted to give you an update on all the work we’ve been doing to improve the experience of searching using an image.

      Search using an image
      Whether you’re on your laptop or your phone you can always search using an image.

      On your laptop we allow you to search for images that are similar to the one you provide – either by pasting in an image URL or by uploading one from your computer. Just go to Bing Images on your computer (bing.com/images) and click the “Image Match” icon to the right of the search box and either paste in the URL of an image or choose to upload.

      On your phone it’s just as easy. Just go to Bing Images (bing.com/images) and tap the camera icon to the right of the search box. You can snap a picture (or use one from your…

    • Please add dedicated shopping category!

      Like google has shopping that's would be the only missing features Bing has is shopping instead going to amazon only one could find better prices through Bing shopping from all websites instead of going to google shopping!

      • Bring Back the Variety to Rewards

        You guys have marked this completed in the past...

        https://binglistens.uservoice.com/forums/283355-ideas/suggestions/7199617-make-more-variety-of-bing-rewards

        https://binglistens.uservoice.com/forums/283355-ideas/suggestions/7671225-lots-of-ideas-have-been-said-and-i-will-repeat-of

        Time to reevaluate again.
        Lots of great Microsoft stuff to spend on, but Microsoft is a tech company. You can only bring so much to the table. Bring back retail and food gift cards. Do more subscription rewards like Hulu's but with Netflix or Amazon Prime or maybe even WatchESPN or HBO NOW or Sling with DISH Network. More options and more variety is never a bad thing.

          Thanks for your rewards suggestions! We’ve just added more entertainment options, like our new 100-credit movie rental redemption offers for popular titles like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, The Big Short, and The Peanuts Movie. There’s also a great limited-time deal for 30%+ off Windows Store gift cards, just 325 credits for $5 or 650 credits for $10, good for Xbox games, movie and TV rentals, music, and more.

          But you’re right; our work here is not done. We are always making improvements and we appreciate your feedback as the program evolves.

        • Request Microsoft Rewards Referral to pick up where Bing Rewards Referral left off

          Bing Rewards Referral was "temporarily paused" because of updates. Request it be re-started and members notified of starting date.

            • Early adopter panel of Bing users

              It would be great to have a panel of Bing users who could get access to new features being developed before anyone else and give early feedback and direction.

                Hey everyone

                We’ve received lots of interest yesterday about the Bing Insiders Program, and we are excited to have so many Bing users join the program.

                If you haven’t registered as yet, here’s the link for you to do that. Feel free to forward to friends, family, colleagues who are Bing users.

              • 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!

                    • Better and more detailed maps

                      There is missing a lot info in maps in comparison with Google maps. We need more detailed maps, especially outside US, e.g. when I am zoom High Tatras (Slovakia), there are displayed only tree hills and even they are placed incorrectly on the map!

                      • Bing needs a new font change for search results

                        The fact i use google after just having searched thru bing is because im used to google font search results. Bing needs to change its font so its more readible or not so sharp edged . google also displays more links per page. Change the font bing and. People will definitely be using it more. The bing hopemage with amazing wallpapers look great but as soon as the search results pop out the whole thing looks unpleasant.

                          Hi everyone,

                          Font is an area we’ve been actively experimenting with over the last 6 months, in particular enhancing readability. We are measuring readability closely to see if different fonts actually result in better and fast reading of our search results. We’ll continue experimenting until we find the optimal solution. Watch this space!

                        • Appoint a Bing manager in each major country or region

                          By having a local manger of all things Bing, they can understand the local interests and issues affecting the local community and culture. Take Australia for example. If Bing (and therefore Cortana) fully embraced the AFL (Australian Football League), NRL (National Rugby League), ARU and SuperLeague (Rugby Union) and Cricket, you would cater to 99.99% of the sporting interests of the entire nation.

                            If I hear of a restaurant that sounds interesting to me, a movie, vacation destination, book, or anything of interest, it would be nice if I could save that thing of interest someplace where I can come back to it later when I'm ready. Take the restaurant for example. Lets say someone recommended I try a restaurant a month ago and now I want to go but I don't remember the name. If I had a section on Bing to save that all I would have to do is open Bing on my phone, go to my places of interest,…

                                Google show more relevant results most of the time because it understands what I am looking for, in Bing for example you search in a sentence question and you get results relevant to the words you entered not the context, and even worse when you misspell a word

                                  Thanks for the suggestion. We are strongly focused on this problem for Bing. These sort of problems surfaces when Bing’s semantic understanding components do not work properly. We would like to deliver significant improvements to this area in the upcoming months.

                                • Make It Easier To Submit Website For Bing News Inclusion

                                  I was actually invited by Bing to submit my news site to be indexed in their News section. After sending over the information, I was told to e-mail if I hadn't heard anything in 30 days. It's been 3 months now, and I'm very confused as to this process.

                                  With Google News, it's pretty simple and explanatory, but with Bing News, it's nearly impossible to find out how you would submit and what the requirement are. If it hadn't been for a Bing News person to e-mail me about being included, I wouldn't have known that they even did that.

                                    Thanks for the news site suggestion. We’ve launched Bing News PubHub (https://pubhub.bing.com/), a portal that enables more publishers to submit their news websites and expand their reach to millions of users through desktop, Cortana, Outlook, and the Bing Search app. Publishers must follow the Bing Webmaster Guidelines (https://www.bing.com/webmaster/help/webmaster-guidelines-30fba23a) and verify ownership through Bing Webmaster Tools (http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster/). We’d love to hear your feedback as we keep improving. Thanks!

                                  • My chosen interests are not being shown in the carousel.

                                    On the bing.com homepage, the news carousel at the bottom of the homepage does not show news or updates on several of my chosen interests. It is my understanding that that is exactly what it is supposed to do, to show the interests I have chosen.

                                    When you go to settings area > Interests you add and remove the categories you want from the default categories. You can also add your own topics of interest. The thing is though that most of those categories never appear in the carousel on the homepage and I wish they would.

                                      Hi Mark

                                      Just a quick follow-up on the email we sent recently. We checked with the team, and wanted to let you know we are working on updates to add more clarity and control to the personalization options, including for Sports.

                                      Stayed tuned, and do come back to this site with other ideas you might have :-)

                                      Thanks

                                    • Add favorites section for video as well

                                      Add favorites section for video similar to the recently introduced favorite for images

                                      • Quick results for random numbers

                                        I would like to see quick answers for queries such as "random number 1-10" and "roll a die." These could pull from Random.org.

                                        • Add more time based events/features to display directly with no need to open a website

                                          Recently when I checked for the sunrise time in my area, bing gave me the current time. There are plenty of time based events like Sunrise, Sunset, Noon, Moon rise, Moon set, time zone, daylight saving etc. I think they should be displayed directly like the current time is displayed when searched for it. ie, in the search results itself with no need to look up in a website for it. It is a useful feature.

                                            The Bing Answers team released the first of many planned improvements to the weather/time segment earlier this week with our new interactive weather answer. To see it, simply try the query {weather} from your search box. We’re currently working on the next set of improvements, which you’ll see in the product over the next couple of months.
