Bing to Roll Out Three New Features this Spring

At the ongoing SES event in New York, Bing is reporting about new features that are being prepared for launch this coming Spring. These three new features have something to do with new interface design, enhancement on real-time search data and visualization of localized information.

To push its vision in making Bing as a vital assistant for online decision-making, Microsoft will be rolling out a lighter, cleaner presentation of search results that will highlight key actions. More particularly the Quick Tabs feature will be relocated to the top of the page to provide one-click access to search results pages.

Next, as a follow up to its integration with Twitter, Bing will be testing new experiences for real-time results. Bing will not only provide links to the specific information but shared links from those information as well.

And of course, to answer the call of the times, Bing is also rolling out visualization feature of search results through Bing’s Map Apps. And to make this feature even more exciting, Bing is experimenting on a real-time data feature that ties up with Foursquare. Bing will be utilizing data annotated by Foursquare members. This will be useful for finding out best places as experienced by Foursquare users.
