Two new Bing image search features let users compare product prices, get product recommendations based on favorited images.
Just in time for the biggest shopping weekend of the year, Bing is rolling out a new image search feature that displays product prices, retailer info, reviews and ratings.
“Bing is bringing you some relief by adding more data to product images, including prices for the same item sold at different stores, reviews and ratings and store availability,” reads the Bing search blog.
Users can click on the shopping cart icon within a Bing image to find the new “Places to Buy Beta” feature that is rolling out on desktop and mobile over the coming days.
Bing is also launching a new “image stream” feature, which gives users product recommendations based on images they have favorited.
Earlier this year, Bing made it possible for users to save an image by clicking the heart icon to favorite it. Now able to favorite images on desktop and mobile, users can use the new image stream feature to find similar products based on their saved images and compare product info.
Bing’s announcement included the following video to show how users can use its new image stream to find and compare products via an image search.
