Microsoft has added native support for Ookla’s Speedtest to Bing / Habr search

Microsoft has replaced its own Bing Internet connection speed test with the Ookla Speedtest widget. It allows you to check download speed, data download and connection latency.

In 2016, Microsoft added to the Bing search engine the function of checking the speed of the Internet connection through the speedtest query. The request displayed a widget that, when activated, showed information about the speed of uploading and downloading data and about the connection delay. Currently, this data can be obtained through the Speedtest service from the Ookla company, MSPowerUser noted. As before, Bing users need to send a “test internet speed” or speedtest request to open the widget from Ookla. Then you need to press “start” and the test will begin.

Ookla launched the Speedtest.net service back in 2006. According to the company’s statistics, 18 million unique users launch it every day, and since its launch it has passed 51 billion tests. The company uses 16,000 servers around the world to conduct inspections.

In addition to the Speedtest.net site, you can also test your connection speed through the Speedtest apps for Windows, Mac, ChromeOS, iOS, Android, and Apple TV set-top boxes. The service also has its own VPN service for iOS and Android for $4.99 per month.
