Microsoft has announced Microsoft Search. Microsoft Search is a unified search platform that will allow the enterprise customers to search for anything across their organization from anywhere. This includes Office Apps, Bing.com as well as Windows. It is powered by Microsoft Graph and will enable the users to get to the queries they throw as fast as possible and that too without leaving their current work. This is not a separate app but is a service integrated directly and deeply inside the search bars inside apps and pages across the ecosystem.
