Windows Phone 8 Bing search results reportedly receive updated design

Bing search results in WP8

According to a new report, Microsoft has apparently rolled out an updated design for Windows Phone 8’s built-in Bing search results. This is a bit interesting since Microsoft usually rolls out interface changes or other improved features during official software updates.

In the past, Windows Phone 8’s search results displayed four categories. You had Web, Local, Media, and Shopping. According to a new report, this has now been condensed to Web, Images, and Video. The Images category now displays larger image previews instead of the small grid we are so unfortunately used to seeing. Videos are now arranged in a two-column format.

While many users are reporting they have not had this “redesign” appear on their Windows Phone 8 devices, some users are reporting that they do have this change. Apparently this redesign is live in the United States for users on a Lumia 925 device as well as a Lumia 920. Let us know in the comments below if you have seen this update on your device, and let us know which device and what country!

We will update you with Microsoft’s official announcement if or when this redesign is mentioned by the company.
