Microsoft drops ‘Bing’ name in latest update to Bing app suite for Windows Phone

Microsoft has rolled out an update to the Bing app suite for Windows Phone, consisting of News, Travel, Finance, Sports, Weather, Translator, and more. In the past, these apps featured the Bing name in the title. However, with the latest update, Microsoft has simply removed the Bing name.

Microsoft has not explained exactly why this move took place and we were quite surprised to see it on our Windows Phone handsets today when prompted for the new update. No other improvements or fixes were noticeable in the update, aside from the name change.

If you utilize any of the apps (such as News, Sports, Travel, etc), head over to the Windows Phone Store and snag the latest update. Let us know if you do notice any improvements.
