Microsoft Bing Image Search Revamped, Gets Buy Item Feature and More
Microsoft on Thursday announced some improvements to its Bing Image Search feature based on user feedback.

With the improved Bing Image Search on Web and mobile, the company is looking to provide more detailed information of a particular image and more. Microsoft says that the experience will be rolling out worldwide to on PCs, tablets and smartphones as well to its iPhone and Android apps over the coming weeks.

Once rolled out, users while searching for images or similar images to a picture they have clicked will be able to scroll down/ swipe up to get useful and interesting information about a particular image.

Upon scrolling, Bing Image Search will show places to buy the product in the image, related searches based on the image, Pinterest collections of that image, pages carrying that image, and of course more sizes of the image.

Microsoft says that the places to buy the product feature is still in beta and at present it will only work for few items.

"This feature is still in beta but is the first peek into the types of things we could enable our customers to do with image searches. We're focused on more precisely detecting pages where you can purchase a product, adding more information for each source, and many other experience improvements," notes Microsoft Bing blog.

Users will see a little redesigned interface upon clicking an image searched through Bing Image Search. While the other related searches will remain as it were, users will see some new actions and meta information alongside.

Additionally, the company has also released a Chrome extension that brings the new Bing Image search information directly into the Web pages user browse, alongside an updated mobile experience.
