Microsoft has recently announced a significant milestone: Bing is now profitable. Windows 10 has been a huge success compared to it’s predecessor 8, which has Bing deeply integrated within the user interface and it’s browsers.
This’ll will slightly change search in favour to Bing over the next few months.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella remarked on the earnings call that Microsoft saw roughly $1 billion in search ad revenue for the quarter. He added that “Windows 10 users have asked Cortana more than 1 billion questions.”
