- Nadella said Bing will focus on expanding in the PC search market
- Apple said it would replace Bing as its default search engine for Siri
- Bing is still the search engine that powers Yahoo, AOL and Amazon
Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella said on Wednesday the company's search engine, Bing, will focus on expanding in the PC search market after losing its deal with Apple's voice assistant Siri.
"Bing is a big business growing at a strong double-digit rate, and we see a significant opportunity for us even on the PC side," Nadella said at a Reuters newsmaker event in New York.
In the company's most recent quarterly earnings report, Microsoft said its search advertising revenue grew 8 percent year-to-year.
