As per the Bing official blog, “People generally like the carousel of trending topics at the foot of the Bing homepage, but many ask how it could reflect their interests a little more. You can customize your experience to follow news, stocks, weather, or even track a flight right from the Bing homepage. Learn how at https://www.bing.com/profile/interests.

The carousel can now be completely minimized as well. The size and motion of the Bing Homepage can also be controlled in the following manner, according to the blog: “start with the settings gear  to customize those elements. High-definition homepage images are big so we leave them off by default in some markets where average internet speeds are slower. If you’re not seeing full HD, you can switch it on in Settings.”

The top header bar now contains the quick links to the Office Online suite.
