Microsoft Updates Bing Desktop App With Facebook Feeds Support

Bing Desktop App Facebook

Microsoft today updated their Bing Desktop app with Facebook feeds support. Bing Desktop brings the beauty of the Bing homepage to your Windows desktop each day. Also you can do Bing searches via the desktop search bar or from the Windows taskbar without having to first open a browser.

Bing Desktop automatically updates daily the Windows desktop background image to the beautiful image that is on the Bing.com homepage. The user may override the image of the day by manually selecting a different image from the prior eight days.

In addition, Bing Desktop offers an easily accessible yet unobtrusive search box to streamline searching without opening the browser.  There are several search box options including a new way to minimize Bing Desktop as a toolbar in the Windows taskbar. Beyond search, Bing Desktop offers direct access to the latest news, trending topics, video and picture highlights without having to launch a browser. Finally, new to Bing Desktop v1.2 is the ability to login to Facebook and see Facebook content right from the Bing Desktop.
