Microsoft has always come up with numerous services for internet and computer world. They launched few search engines in past like MSN search, Windows live search and Live search. In June 2009 they launched their most successful web search engine "BING". I am calling it most successful because in November 2015 it had the query volume of 21% behind Google with 63.8%. It also powers the Yahoo search whose query volume is 12.9%. Bing provides different services including search services, web, images, videos, mapping etc.
Bing provide variety of features to it users, which include media features, interface features, instant answers, local info, translator and integration with Windows 8. You can use Bing search engine as registered and unregistered user. One can easily make a Microsoft account to use Bing as registered user. Number of services are provided to the registered users on Bing including access to the ONE Drive, and Microsoft office.
We always type our searches and forget them, what if we need to access the same pages again? Of course we can bookmark those pages. Search engines make it easier by storing your search history. In case of Bing, search history is stored along with other activities if you’re logged in to your Microsoft account. You can access your activities anywhere by logging in to your Microsoft account.
