If you visit Bing's homepage just to check out the image of the day, you will have even more to gaze at starting today. Microsoft has added full HD widescreen (1920×1080) images to the Bing front page for all of the search site's markets worldwide.

While the HD home page photos are the most visible addition to Bing today, Microsoft has also added some other features. One offers a faster way to view information on what the image is with a title card. Microsoft said " ... you can move your mouse over the Info button to reveal the new image caption and click to learn more or download the image to use as your desktop wallpaper."

The top of the Bing home page now has an Office Online menu selection where users can access the free versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and OneDrive, among other web apps. Finally, the news carousel at the bottom of the page can also be customized to "follow news, stocks, weather, or even track a flight right from the Bing homepage." This particular feature is just for US users at first.
