Microsoft has released new updates to its OneDrive and Bing Search applications for Android users. As expected, the latest update comes with new features and an updated UI for Bing users. Users can get the latest versions after updating apps in the Google Play Store. Let’s take a look at what’s new in the two apps.
According to the Change Store changelog, Microsoft Bing Search comes with a new homepage. Users will see top stories, topics they follow, and instant access to Microsoft features. The latest features of the Bing app include Covid tracker, weather updates, visual search like Google Lens, leak system, voice search, translator, unit converter, e-sports updates, and more. You can update your Bing application from here.
According to the OneDrive app, the Android version has now found the desired feature – Chromecast support. It will allow users to stream media files to Chromecast-enabled devices, including TV. You will see the Cast icon in the toolbar at the top. To start displaying content, tap the button and select the device you want to stream.
The latest models are currently being released to select markets right now. We expect it to be available to all users in the coming days.
Separately, Microsoft is looking for a new way to allow its users to earn a point at the Microsoft Awards. Users can find it through Microsoft Search. According to reports, users can earn rewards when they log in to 365 selected services with a school or work profile. The feature is likely to be released next month.
“Users in your organization will be able to earn Microsoft Award points if they are signed into selected Microsoft services 365 (Microsoft Search in Bing) through their organizational account (work or school),” he said.
