The Bing team has released a new version of Bing Bar for Internet Explorer. The new Bing Bar 7.1 features Facebook chat and other entertainment apps. This new release is based on user feedback and provides richer access to your social connections, news and entertainment. In the previous versions, you could access Facebook and also update your status and view the updates and photos from your friends. The latest release allows you to chat with your online Facebook friends.
You need to login with Facebook and provide access to the chat to start using it. Apart from chat, there are also few other changes;
- Slacker Radio: Listen to music, sports, news, comedy and more without interrupting your web browsing. Slacker has the most personalized content of any radio service.
- Fresh News apps: With the new apps for news, when news breaks, you’ll get an immediate notification right from the Bing Bar.
- Search Suggestions: You often trigger a search from a web page you’re browsing. To make it even easier, the Bing Bar provides suggested search terms as you browse.
Note: Not all features are available in all markets.
