Bing Autosuggest Adds Brands, Movies, Albums, Places, Software, Teams, Animals & More

bing-autocompleteBing announced they have expanded their search autosuggestions to add more than seven new categories.

Bing added autosuggest completions for brands, movies, albums, places, software, sport teams, animal species and more. This is in addition to Bing adding people, search history, news and more over the years.

The example given by Bing is searching for the word [pitbull]. With this search, you may want results for the artist (a person) or the dog (a breed). In this case, Bing will serve up thumbnails with both the person and the dog. Here is a screen shot:

Antonio Gulli, Principal Development Manager of Bing said:

Bing utilizes an underlying technology we call Satori that understands the relationships between millions of people, places and things providing you with a more useful model of the digital and physical world. All of this computational power allows you to select the most appropriate choice in a matter of milliseconds.
