How Did Microsoft’s Mediocre Rewards Program Allow Bing to Compete with Google Search?

Many people have not yet heard about Microsoft’s Mediocre Rewards Program which is not surprising. The program was created by Microsoft to spread the uses of Bing search engine worldwide, but hardly people know about it. Even I myself wasn’t aware of this program a few months back. After researching thoroughly on the topic, I happened to know that Bing pays your reward for using the search engine instead of Google search engine.

If you open Bing from your browser, you will find it alluring. It comes with a beautiful background image and personalized news suggestions. Even if you are not a Bing user, you will like to use this search engine for your everyday need. Maybe, Bing is not as popular as Google, but it also is very powerful. Even though not all country can participate in this war game of Bing with Google, but it also true that using Bing will not disappoint you.

Who Does Not Like Free Reward?

 Microsoft’s Mediocre Rewards Program pay people free money for your everyday task- search! The condition is, you’ll have to do it with Bing search engine only. And here is the question, who does not like free money? Of course, all of us do, but the reasons why most people do not use the Bing search engine are follows-

  1. You are a reliable Google user and do not want to cheat Google by searching on Bing!
  2. You didn’t even know that Microsoft’s Mediocre Rewards Program does exist!
  3. Searching on Bing is not your thing or you simply choose not to use that search engine
  4. You forget to search on Bing!

But whatever the reason is, you still have your choice!

Microsoft Has Dropped Support for the Windows Bing Rewards App

Not so good news, for Windows Phone users, Microsoft is is going to discontinue the Bing Rewards app from Windows phone. The app helps the users to manage their account, earn credits and redeem them, helps them enter any sweepstakes and perform a different kind of tasks. But recently, when the users open the app on their Windows phone, they can see a headline saying, “TIME FOR CHANGE” and after the headline, a message appears,  “We’re ending support for this app in May, but you can keep earning!”.

If you are using the app, then you can still be able to use it and also you can redeem rewards and everything. But unlike before, this app is no longer going to take an update. The app has already stopped getting updates since 2016, and since not many regions are using this app (the only UK, US, and Australia), the number of users of this app is very less.

Since the Bing rewards app is not getting any updates, it means Microsoft is not going to support the app anymore, however, no final words had been spoken. But now Microsoft has decided to end their support, and so it has been spoken officially.

The users who are using the app can now use their web browsers on their Windows phone to earn points and redeem the rewards. This change will certainly be affecting users living in the US, UK, and Australia. Also, another Windows app has been unsupported by the developer. Yahoo has decided to drop their support for the mail app on the Windows phone.

Nevertheless, the change can’t affect you much if you use Bing from your web browser for earning points.
