Microsoft renames Bing to better reflect its integration with the rest of Microsoft products. In the future, Microsoft will call the search engine “Microsoft Bing”. It’s not a drastic change removing the Bing name, but it does emphasize Bing’s collaboration with other Microsoft services such as the Windows taskbar and Microsoft 365.

Microsoft discusses this change in a Bing blog post that also outlines new options for Bing users. The blog post briefly covers the change to the Microsoft Bing name, then goes into more detail on the expansion of the Give with Bing program, which allows you to donate to charity with Microsoft Rewards.

Microsoft has partnered with singer, songwriter, actress and producer Janalle Monáe to help underserved communities through the Social Justice Learning Institute. The company has also partnered with Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams to work with the Why Not You Foundation, which was founded by Seahawks star Russell Wilson.

In total, Give with Bing now supports 1.4 million organizations worldwide. Until December 31, 2020, Microsoft will match points given to organizations through Give with Bing. Microsoft said more than $ 1 million has been donated through Give with Bing so far.

While the Bing blog doesn’t specifically mention it, today’s announcement also appears to come with a new logo. When you open a new tab with Bing, a new Bing icon appears in the address bar. The same new icon also appears on the Microsoft Bing app on the Google Play Store and the Microsoft Bing official Twitter account. The curvier logo has been in testing since April but seems to be rolling out more widely now.
