Microsoft announced some updates to its Android and iPhone apps. While they company describes both updates as major, this is especially the case for Android.

There's a new mobile search experience on Google's operating system.

"The Bing App on Android brings together the information you need, connected to the apps you trust – all to help you “find” and “do” more faster and easier," a spokesperson for the company said in an email.

The app includes the Near Me feature to help you find things close to you, a Restaurants feature, a Movies feature (which shows movies organized by what's new on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or genre), and Images and Videos, which shows popular people or animal searches or music and viral videos.

The iPhone app gets a new barcode scanner that allows for product price comparison from an online catalog of retailers as well as a way to find the cheapest gas in the area.
