Bing App For Android Updated

3

Microsoft has updated the Bing app for Android users.  The update includes an overhauled UI and support for daily images.  WinBeta reports:

Now Microsoft has pushed a major update of its Bing app for Android. Version 4.2.0.20131129, which is compatible with Android 2.2 and newer, brings a capability which was once exclusive to Windows Phone. Users can now choose to use the Bing Daily Image as the wallpaper on their device. The image will automatically update each day, providing an added interest to your phone or tablet.

Bing for Android is more than just a search engine. It is more of a suite of Microsoft apps, including Maps and the like. Users can also directly share things via Facebook and even sync with SkyDrive. You can even add a Bing search widget to the Android home screen. The app is free.

The app is available for free and is now much more ‘metro’ looking.
