Bing App is updated with more features for Windows Phone

This is one of the good news for the Windows Phone users. Bing has updated two new features for its Bing app for Windows Phones. The first feature is a redesign to the home page and for navigation to give you faster access to common searches like Movies and Traffic.
The second feature of the Bing App is turn-by-turn navigation for Windows 6.x phones, powered by Bing Maps. In order to deliver an amazing life like voice experience for the turn-by-turn navigation, Bing has taken the advantage of Microsoft Tellme team’s expertise in Voice Applications.

Therefore, you can feel the Voice guided navigation, if you have any Windows Phone on sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T.
If you’re going to get a directions with Bing, you can see a new “Navigate” button. All you have to do is just select the “Navigate” option. Then, Bing will calculate your route and will guide you as you drive. Therefore, you can select the shortest or the longest route as per your convenience to avoid traffic or toll plaza. Moreover, you can get a map or a list of directions with arrows and hear alerts to let you know which way you have to turn next.
