I use Google, it's better in my region (Southern Africa) WPC App for Android - Note 3
Opening the US version worked in my WP in Desktop mode.
Just go to the desktop version of Bing in IEM, and tab the bird❕
Even more to that ! Read my comment below and check your mail ! (if you've signed up for some bing service)
Everyone check your outlook mails in the newsletters section !!
You'd have the bing newsletter of the month..
But the funny thing is, the stuff it mentions is:
A) downright silly
C) not possible right now with the tech we have
D) when you click on 'see here' etc links... Well i leave it to you :-P
E) doesn't exist on bing !! :-P you wont get any results ! (yes i got taken into the joke and i binged it 3-4 times :-P)
F) exciting to imagine for some people.. (i mean pet lovers) Go check !!
You'd see the future of wearables in that mail, and also, the future of voice recognition !
I'm not kidding i swear !
MS just achieved a new level in partiality. Yes! Even pranks are US (and few select countries) only! :|
Do one thing, open it on laptop and see if you have a 'play' button in the lower right corner, if you have it, then it should work sooner or later..

Go BING (not google, bing gives description) 'flying penguin hoax' and watch the video which comes at the top, it'll make your day ! :)
