Microsoft has introduced version 1.1 of its Bing Desktop app, which is expected to deliver support for Windows 8 devices, in addition to its older versions of Windows (XP and Vista) and Windows Server 2008 and 2012.
The new version also offers support for additional languages including French, German, Chinese and Japanese, as well as adding some new features to the search bar.
Bing Desktop 1.1 has also added a content icon to the search bar, when once clicked, offers up the top news items, trending images and video, apart from other features.
In addition, the new release will allow users to access the last nine days of wallpaper from Bing.com, to help a user who has been away from the PC and missed a few of the images, Microsoft said.
In April 2012, Microsoft released the first beta version of Bing Desktop for Windows 7 which added a Bing search bar in the centre of the desktop screen.
