Microsoft Tag is now built into Bing’s new Windows Phone 7.5 Visual Search functionality. Scan both Tag barcodes and QR Codes using Bing Visual Search. Simply tap Search to launch Bing, then press the Vision search icon from the app bar. Hover the viewfinder over your Tag barcode or QR Code and your item will be scanned.

    How i tag with windows phone 8.1 ? Cortana
  • by Sean 3/17/2015
    Won't bring back the vision fiction to your search key. Why isn't this item built into Cortana?
  • by Ajith 3/16/2015
    Don't bother installing. Doesn't do anything on 8.1

    What's the use on wp8.1
  • by Robert 2/28/2015
    Does not work properly with WP8.1 and Cortana. App needs to get to using the WP search button. However, on WP8.1, search goes directly to Cortana and not Bing as it did in WP 7 or 8.0. Unless I've totally missed something, there is apparently no possible way to scan an MS Tag using WP 8.1. I've had this app for 10 minutes and now I'm deleting it. Seriously Microsoft, you can't fix your own software to work correctly with your own phone?

    Outdated for WP8.1 doesn't work with search as the video shows. How foes it work now?
  • by Thomas 2/7/2015
    Literally just the "how to" video for an outdated built-in feature. So there's no compatibility of MS Tag on their own phone? What the hell?

    It used to work okay until I installed Cortana. No matter what I try, I can't get it to work again. Cortana gives me hyperlinks like Wikipedia instead of launching the tag app.
