Bing for Android redesign delivers new daily wallpaper feature


Because Android phones are all about Google and its services, Microsoft has come up with a clever new way to entice people to use Bing for Android – daily wallpapers. Bing for Android has received a design refresh, but the main reason you’ll want to download the app is the ability to use the Bing daily image as your wallpaper on your Android device. Yes, it’s a bit gimmicky and pointless; there are dozens, if not hundreds, of amazing wallpaper apps for Android. But, you have to give Microsoft some credit for thinking of new ways to entice people to download Microsoft apps on an Android device.

Props to Microsoft for Bing’s four and a half star rating and using the new Android design standards, but it’s surprising that the company is putting any effort into its Android apps give how much time the company is spends educating the public on how not to get Scroogled.
