Bing Adds Driving Directions In Search Results
Bing announced they now offer driving directions in the form of a quick answer directly in the Bing search results.
For example, last week, I drove from New York to Toronto and I wanted to tell how long the drive was. So all you need to do is search for [nyc to toronto] and Bing will tell you it is about 7 hours and 31 mins and 491 miles. Clicking on the map will take you to Bing’s turn-by-turn driving directions, and it also works when you try it from your Windows Phone, iPhone and/or Android devices.
Here is a picture:
Of course, Google has offered a similar experience for a while, as has Wolfram Alpha and other search engines.
