Last week, Bing rolled out with a new version of Bing Maps. Although Google has had these features on Google Maps, Bing’s new search feature is seeing a number of improvements.
What has improved?
- Bing Maps now uses the same search engine as Bing.com, providing users with more relevant results and more in-depth information about locations being searched for.
- Bing Maps now adds auto suggestions when users start typing in a search.
- In addition to the 20 results that can now be displayed on a card, other nearby locations can be indicated by smaller map markers revealing additional information.
- Users can now easily receive additional traffic and directions by using search terms like “traffic in Boston”, “Directions to Boston”, etc.
Be sure to check out these features for yourself.
