M365 Changelog: (Updated) Search history suggestions for Bing AAD users

MC335111 – Updated June 17, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft is currently bringing search history suggestions to Bing for AAD users. Users who are signed in with their AAD account will be able to select suggestions from their search history in search box in Bing homepage, all vertical, and work vertical. This will help users to quickly access previous searches and save them time by only needing to enter a partial search term. Microsoft stores up to 1000 suggestions for every user. Users have full control over their search history. They can delete the search history or download them at any time. The search management page is easily accessible from the “Manage your search history” link at the bottom of the suggestions list. Their search history isn’t shared with any third parties.

How this will affect your organization:

All the users in the tenant will be able to see suggestions based on their search history when they use the Bing search box. This will only be applicable for users who sign in with their AAD accounts.

Users will be able to manage their search history from the Bing Search History page.
