Microsoft has just announced a feature update for Bing’s search engine, which allows Bing to provide users with relevant and comprehensive information while searching for keywords for candidates for the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The experience is now available in beta beta and is designed to help voters make informed decisions about the information they get through online searches. This information encompasses different sources, such as news sites, official candidate sites, and non-partisan organizations such as VoteSmart.org.

When a user searches for a specific candidate on Bing, search engines can return relevant search results, such as key facts and reference sources, in a single location.
“Throughout the 2020 election cycle, it is important to focus on helping people understand the core issues of political discourse,” the Bing team said in a blog post.
Our goal is to provide the most relevant, accurate and timely information and a comprehensive perspective, including a comprehensive overview and introduction to key issues. It covers a range of news sources and perspectives, as well as important regulations related to these issues.
In addition, the feature will provide people with the latest news experiences, upcoming events, and candidates’ different positions on a variety of issues. Finally, users may want to view a summary of each candidate on the Congressional counting site.
It is important to note that this feature is currently only available in the United States. Microsoft also plans to expand this feature further in the future, following feedback from the public.
