Microsoft has now expanded Bing Visual Search from the web side to the desktop and gradually integrated into Windows Search, according to a recent official announcement. Users can search the web for related images and content through local images in other apps and browsers. In the example shown below, the user intercepts the blue sofa in the picture and then pops up similar search results.
Ravi Yada, head of product seddy Visual Search, says: “Visual search is a whole new way of searching. Many things can’t be described in words, and Bing can help you search for what you see by using images as search input. “
Bing Visual Search is also suitable for screenshots, and similar results are displayed in the drop-down menu in the Photos app. “We found that people also wanted to use screenshots to search, so we introduced search with screenshots into the Windows search bar,” said Nektarios Ioannides, Bing’s head of image search. “
“The search is changing,” says Ioannides. We’re still expanding our functional range. We are proud to see its rapid growth and rich features, especially as we move towards a world where search with our eyes is becoming more common. “
