Microsoft is giving third-party app developers a way to directly access its vast amount of data and information it has collected for its Bing search engine. This comes in the form of a new Bing knowledge and action graph API that will allow those developers to make apps allow users to access Bing's information from inside those apps.
As an example of how this new API can be used inside apps, Microsoft has updated its own Bing Android app so that its users can access snapshot information from inside other apps.
Developers who are interested in using the Bing knowledge and action graph API can email Microsoft at https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https%3A%2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.com%2Fdeeplink%3Fid%3DkXQk6%252AivFEQ%26mid%3D24542%26u1%3DUUwpUdUnU33524%26murl%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.microsoft.com%252Fen-us%252F&token=wMk-aIl- to request access. Microsoft plans to offer the API to the first set of developers sometime this fall.
