Microsoft Search provides contextual work-related information using data sources in Office 365, including SharePoint,?Microsoft OneDrive for Business, and Exchange. Browser access to worked-related search is known as https://support.office.com/article/find-what-you-need-with-microsoft-search-in-bing-0b64be13-f20f-4e17-82b6-4deaea4940fb Microsoft Search in Bing.
With Microsoft Search in Bing, your users see search results both from the web and from your organization, in any browser and on any device, when they are signed in to Bing with their work or school account.
The new user experience in Microsoft Search in Bing provides easy access to shared documents, workplace websites, and Teams conversations directly from the browser address bar. It also makes it easy for your users to look up colleagues within the browser.

The new user experience adds a work tab, which facilitates finding work-related information.
