Microsoft's polling tool Bing Pulse has been rebranded as Pulse, while becoming more deeply integrated with a suite of other MS products including Skype for Business, OneNote, and Azure Media Services.

These include the ability to display videos during live events, as well as a souped-up dashboard with more in-depth data and analysis from its polls.
