Today, Facebook and Reliance Communications are making the internet available to millions of people in India through the launch of the Internet.org app and free basic services. Bing is now part of Internet.org app in India.
We are proud that Bing is the primary search engine for the Internet.org app in India, which will be made available later today to Reliance customers in India. Together with Facebook, and many others across the industry, we are working to make the internet more accessible through a set of free basic services.
Through Internet.org, Bing will help bring more people online to discover information, knowledge and experience services that they might not have had access to otherwise. Our participation in Facebook’s Internet.org follows the integration of Bing into a range of third party experiences – including Apple’s Siri and Spotlight, and Twitter’s translation services.
