Microsoft just announced the Microsoft Bing app for the Xbox. The app allows you to find new content for your console, search the web, and integrates with Microsoft Rewards. The app is available for free through the Microsoft Store and works on the Xbox One, the Xbox Series X, and the Xbox Series S.
The app is optimized for the Xbox platform and allows you to jump on the web and search for information quickly. As an example, you could search for information on how to get past a tricky spot within a game.
The Microsoft Bing app on Xbox also combines Microsoft Bing data with information from your Xbox, such as in-game progress and what your friends are playing. The app can then show you search results catered to you.
You can also use the app to look through Microsoft Bing images of the day and set them as your console background.
You can search for content through the app using a controller, a media remote, or your voice if you have an Xbox headset.
When you're doing all this searching around through the app, you'll earn Microsoft Rewards points. You can redeem these points for prizes, including a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
