Microsoft today updated Windows Live Search for Windows Mobile. The update adds several new features, and makes general improvements to the application.
The new update specifically adds real-time Weather, as well as Compositions; the first web search tool available in Live Search for Mobile. Compositions combines search data with feed information in an intuitive, mobile-formatted way of accessing information from different supported sources.
The update also takes out of beta Microsoft’s voice recognition technology. The technology was in previous Live Search for Mobile releases, but marked as functionality in development. This ties in with next month’s launch of the Samsung Instinct, which includes Live Search with Voice functionality.
The update should be detected the next time a user launches the application, as well as in the Update Available menu item. New users can download the application from wls.live.com on their Windows Mobile phone.
The update comes within a week of Microsoft officially offering Windows Live integration with the Windows Mobile interface. The separate download adds Live Web Search and Live Mail integration to the Windows Mobile platform.
