Have You Tried Bing Visual Search?


The era of Visual Search has just arrived! And no….its not the mighty Google this time!!
Surprising?? Microsoft has just overtaken Google by introducing Bing Visual Search.

Visual Search allows you to actually search by a ‘picture‘. Wondering how this is useful?? Simple…I’m sure all of us would have seen a particular celebrity on television, but would have forgotten his/her name. But at the same time, we know how he/she exactly looks like. This is where Bing helps us. Bing provides us visual information structured into galleries from which we can zero in on what we are looking for.

Bing currently supports popular celebrities, world leaders, dog breeds, cars , handbags, laptops, books and many more categories. The user interface is very well designed and intuitive. Personally, I think the image transitions are just brilliant! Thanks to SilverLight 🙂

Currently, Visual Search is in its Beta and supported only for US.
