Bing for Mobile Comes to Verizon Android


Today Microsoft announced the first official Bing for Mobile Android App available to Verizon customers.

You can now download the free Bing App from your Verizon Wireless Android phones? Marketplace.

The app homepage features the Bing image of the day, complete with clickable hotspots that you can explore and discover related trivia. You can even swipe through up to 7 days? worth of Bing images.

The image search feature that has endless scrolling results. Swipe through image previews and click straight through to the image host site.

A mic option is also available on the homepage. Microsoft's investment in voice search continues in the Android App and works for searches like map locations as well as web search. This works especially well when looking for "Instant answers" which give you quick and relevant answers for things like movies, stock quotes, flight status and local listings.

Just say movies," for a quick result of movie listings, theaters and show times nearby, or say the flight information you are looking for, we will show you the departure, arrival, and other relevant information such as traffic, weather, news, and hotels details.

Voice search is also great when it comes to your local business listings.

The Android app also has a pretty smooth mapping feature. First, Bing will automatically find your current location. You can then discover new places by category such as restaurants, banks, theaters and you can choose whether you want walking or driving directions. Swipe through each step of your directions, and check out how fast the map pans and zooms. For times when you only have one hand free and can?t pinch, there is the handy zoom-out button.

There are a bunch of other features like local listing reviews, ratings and news.
