Microsoft officially launch Bing in the UK

Share

Bing UKAfter 5 months of testing, Microsoft’s Bing search engine is shedding it’s beta skin and officially launching.

Bing features:

  • A localised UK homepage, featuring hotspot-snippets of information on a daily theme.
  • Visual Search, which images and meta data to search without having to type in keywords
  • Instant Answers, which gives answers quickly to specific queries
  • Twitter feed searching, pulling up Tweets in Bing searches in real-time
  • Integrated shopping with Ciao UK
  • Bing Maps, designed based on data collected from Multi map users

It’s a feature-rich site which could prove popular with those tired of Google’s stripped back approach to web-searching.
