  1. 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.

    • 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!

      • Bring Back the Variety to Rewards

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

        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.

        • 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.

          • 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!

            • 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!

              • Time zone conversion

                Maybe if I ask Bing "What time is 10am March 12 PST in Thailand" Bing can give me the answer.

                Very useful when following a live blog or something.

                  Thanks for the idea. Bing can already do time conversions for a limited set of queries. See an example here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=pst+to+ist&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IENTTR&conversationid=

                  We’re working on triggering this experience for queries where a specific time conversion between two locations is requested e.g. “What time is 10am March 12 PST in Thailand”.

                  Keep your feedback coming, use it to improve Bing. Thanks!

                • get bing rewards credits from physical microsoft store purchases

                  we should be able to earn reward credits too if we use our emails that we signed up with in physical store purchases like how on the website you can, I bought two products a Microsoft band 2 and a Lumia 650 Dual Sim Phone ,I think spending physical money in a physical store should be credited too.

                    I am trying to contact customer service through the following link https://www.bing.com/rewards/contact but I am redirected to microsoft support. When I select Bing Rewards as my product I am told to go to the bing rewards customer service page which links me directly back to where I started.

                    • Understand what I am searching, not only words

                      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

                              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…

                              • 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

                                  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,…

                                  • 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.

                                      That’s a great suggestion. Thanks for the idea. We are in the process of initiating such an effort and are continually striving to make it better. We will pass on this specific request to the feature team. Please do continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

                                      • 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.
