Microsoft Bing for Android update revealed

    Microsoft is introducing a major new capability to its Bing Search app for Android. Now when you want more information on the people, places, and things you’re reading about, you can hold down the home button to get contextual information and take related actions courtesy of Bing, without switching apps. Earlier Google previewed Google Now on Tap, a feature in the forthcoming Android Marshmallow operating system that lets you get context from Google about the things you’re currently looking at onscreen. Marshmallow isn’t coming out until this fall, so in a sense Microsoft has outdone Google in releasing this sort of thing to the world.
