Bing is one of the lesser-known search engines on the market that has managed to survive despite Google dominating most of the market. Developed by Microsoft, Bing offers better search capabilities and its own proprietary features among which, the most popular one is their daily image selection which can be viewed on the homepage every day.
Editors at Bing handpick images from around the world to showcase on their search engine which was soon adapted as a feature in most Windows laptops. People that have been wanting these wallpapers on their smartphones have been requesting Microsoft for a dedicated app for years now.
While many alternative 3rd party apps have existed that manage to pull wallpapers from Bing so that you can use them on your smartphones, they often brought along many privacy concerns.
Thankfully, Microsoft has managed to release a dedicated app for smartphone users that not only gives you access to their entire collection of curated wallpapers but also gives you the ability to automatically change your wallpaper at set intervals of time be it a day or a week. Let’s take a further look at how you can use the Bing wallpapers app to your advantage.
