Microsoft has announced major changes and new features for its search engine Bing. The company is now including a new full HD daily background image, which comes with information captions, in addition to a quick shortcut to Microsoft products tools, and user’s ability to customize the news on the bottom.Unlike Google and most other search engines, Bing showcases beautiful images in the background. On users’ request, the company is now upping the resolution of those background images to full HD (1920×1080 pixels), which will look great if you have a widescreen display. These backgrounds will now come with a new image caption, which the company says will help users learn more, as well as get an option to download it as their desktop wallpaper.

To further improve engagement, Bing now lets users select topics they want to see in the bottom trending carousel. To select your favorite topics, go to the interest profile from the settings page. There’s also a quick link to visit Office Online suite in the top header bar. The service is now available worldwide.
