Windows Phone 8 will add “Global Search” to the Start Screen

The Windows Phone Developer Summit is less than a month away and the rumors are starting to pick up some steam. Insideris is at it again with another Windows Phone 8 rumor. This time they are saying WP8 will have a new “global search” feature.

The search will be activated by a new search button below the arrow on the right side of the start screen (as shown in the mock-up above). Once activated you will be able to search for anything from apps, contacts, games, and more. If you’ve ever seen the search functionality of Android and iOS we imagine this will be something similar. This is something Windows Phone has been lacking, and it’s about time we get it.
