Microsoft beats Google by adding Bitcoin conversion first

closeThis article could be out of date, as it was published 8 months 14 days ago.

Microsoft has added Bitcoin conversion to its Bing currency conversion tool, which now supports over 50 currencies.

Conversion is as simple as typing in “x btc to currency” or “x currency to btc.” The data is provided by digital wallet company Coinbase – according to The Next Web.

Microsoft says the digital currency option is initially available to people in Australia, Canada, India, the UK, and the US, but will be rolling out to additional markets “in the coming weeks.”

There’s no word on other popular options like Litecoin and Dogecoin, which leaves an opening for Google to surpass Bing when it gets around to supporting digital currencies.

There are currently no plans by Google to incorporate Bitcoin at this stage.
