Control your music and audio from within the Your Phone app

Your audio tracks will remain in sync between your phone and PC, and you can switch between multiple sources using the dropdown in the player. Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Xiami Music, and Google Podcast are examples of some supported media apps.

 

To use this feature, Microsoft recommends a PC having at least the Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later, an Android mobile running 7.0+, and apps that support media controls in their Android notifications.

 

Easy access to COVID-19 info in your search box

Starting this week, when you open the Search home, you will now see a coronavirus info banner. Select the View interactive map for fast access to the Bing COVID-19 Tracker, updated daily with the latest information both locally and around the globe.

 

As you explore the tracker, you’ll also see stories from each region, as well as contact info for local and national health resources. It’s a comprehensive way to monitor the situation close at home and abroad.
