Microsoft Search is now generally available

At its Ignite conference in September, Microsoft unveiled Microsoft Search. The service allows you to search for people and information from within your organization based on Office 365 and data in the Microsoft Graph, as well as for information outside of your organization.

Microsoft Search provides personalized results as soon as you click the search box, and that can include a document that you've recently been working on, a person that you were recently collaborating with, or something else. The idea is a unified search experience across all of your Microsoft apps and services, such as SharePoint, OneDrive, Office, Bing, and Windows.

The company also says that Search will be included in a prominent place across all of the apps that you use. Also, while admins can access the most popular searches for an organization, they can't actually see what individuals are searching for.

Microsoft announced the general availability of Search at its Build conference today, saying that it will roll out to Microsoft 365 and Office 365 customers later this month. There will also be a private preview for third-party connectors later this year.
