Today Microsoft has updated two of their apps for Windows Phone. Head into the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see updates for Bing Translator and Windows Reading List, an app they released just last week. Bing Translator is available to everyone, while Reading List is only available to those on Windows Phone 8.1 since they use the universal Microsoft Account sign in. Let’s check out what’s new.
Version 184.108.40.206 of Bing Translator is what you’ll find in the Windows Phone Store. Version 2.9.1 of Bing Translator brings the following new features:
- Automatic language detection in Keyboard mode
- Offline translation for Arabic and Persian
We missed covering the 2.9.1 update, so today’s update to 220.127.116.11 probably is just a handful of bug fixes. If you notice anything else let us know. That said, we’re really liking the automatic language detection when using the keyboard. We’re also sure a lot of our friends who speak Arabic and Persian will appreciate the offline support that now comes in Bing Translator.

Microsoft has updated Windows Reading List to version 18.104.22.1682. We’re not seeing a changelog in the app description or in the details section of the Windows Phone Store. We’re going to go out far on a limb and say you’re getting bug fixes. We’ve heard some users have troubles with items taking sometime to sync, hopefully this update speeds up the process.

Thanks for the tips everyone!
