Bing News Adds Visual Carousel & Searches Years Back (Not Just Two Weeks)

bing-click-featuredBing announced they have added a new visual way to consume news on Bing News.

Now, for searches on notable people, Bing will return an image carousel at the top. Plus, you will also see on the right-hand side of the page related people to the person you searched for.

Here is an example of the image carousel on Bing News:

bing-news-carousel

This looks very similar to Google’s knowledge graph carousel which launched in August of last year.

Bing News also added the ability to see news results for queries that have no fresh news. If Bing News cannot find fresh content within the past two weeks, Bing said they will “look back over several years to bring you any relevant articles.”

For more details on this update, see the Bing blog.
