Search app improves accuracy and customer experience with new and better features

In a confidential event held recently by Microsoft for its employees to discuss upcoming technologies, the improvements in the speech recognition capabilities introduced in the new Bing app were highlighted. These changes include reduced error rate in word recognition, increase in speed while identifying speech requests, and better performance in noisy environments.

In addition to the improvement of 12-15% in word recognition identified in current tests, a further 10-15% is expected in the near future

What’s unclear, however, is when these changes will be rolled out to the end user. Will these be incorporated in WP Blue, or will we have to wait till WP 9 to experience them in the flesh. We’ll just have to wait and see
