Bing App Updated for Windows Phone

Microsoft has announced new features of their updated Bing app for Windows phones. It has two new cool features in it. First change is that it has new redesigned home page and with better navigation options. These new navigation options will give faster access to users for common searches like Movies and Traffic.


The second major feature is its turn-by-turn navigation feature for Windows Phone 6.x phones powered by Bing Maps. This feature looks great because with this getting directions with Bing maps will become very easy.

Microsoft has used its Tellme team’s expertise in voice application to provide amazing voice experience for turn-by-turn navigation.You can use this voice guided navigation if you have a Windows Phone on Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T.

This navigation feature would calculate your route and guide you to find your destination. Apart from showing the route you can also check the fastest or shortest routes. These navigation features are currently just for U.S. and will be accessible for some other countries soon.

Overall these changes are great and the interface is impressive. A must have app for all Windows Phone users.
