Microsoft will build Microsoft Search on Windows 10 in Q4 2020

Microsoft Search is an internal search service provided by Microsoft for enterprises. This service was originally integrated with Bing Search.

For example, the company administrator can configure the company’s internal announcement page, contact list, technical documents, and other information, and then submit it to Microsoft Enterprise Search.

When internal employees search similar keywords through Bing search, Bing will give priority to the information configured by the administrator, and this information will not be made public.

Although using Bing Search to retrieve internal information is very convenient, if you need to open the web version of Bing Search every time, it seems a bit cumbersome.

So Microsoft is planning to integrate the Microsoft Enterprise Search service into the Windows 10 search box because the search box itself also calls Bing Web search results.

After the integration, when internal employees retrieve certain keywords directly in the Windows 10 search box, the internal information configured by the administrator will be displayed directly.

Microsoft said that the integration can provide companies with more relevant search results, while also helping employees save search time and provide products and so on.

Microsoft explains:

“We’re bringing Microsoft Search to the Windows 10 search box. Microsoft Search is an enterprise search experience that increases productivity and saves time by delivering more relevant search results for your organization.”

At present, the search box integrated into Windows 10 is still not implemented, and Microsoft said that the company has arranged engineers to develop this integration service.

According to Microsoft’s expectation that the service will be integrated in Q4 2020. At that time, Microsoft will directly provide the service to enterprises or other organizations by adjusting server updates.

In addition, the Microsoft Search service supports Microsoft 365, Office 365, Microsoft Azure AD, etc.
