Bing Innovates with Visual Search

Bing has just taken web search into  new heights via a beta feature called Visual Search. Launched today at the TechCrunch50 event,

“Visual Search is a new way to refine search queries through imagery, particularly for sets of results that tend to be more structured.”

Basically what Bing’s Visual Search does is to present search results arranged into virtual data grouping galleries which can be used to refine user search results.  Whereas traditionally search engines would let us refine search by typing search parameters, Bing’s Visual Search feature will only let you click on images to drill down onto your search results.

You can try the beta of Visual Search by going to Bing.com/visualsearch or watch a demo of  Bing’s Visual Search here. Visual Search is currently available for the following categories. If you want to see it in action, check out the following categories:
