Bing snapshots on Android available on tap
To showcase what the new Knowledge and Action Graph API can do for app developers, we are updating the Bing App on Android with snapshots that users can launch outside of the Bing App itself. You can get the updated Bing App here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.bing The days of having to interrupt what you’re doing just so you can do a search are over. Say you’re in your favorite social media app and you see a photo of a travel destination that catches your eye. Just long-press the home button and Bing will scan your screen, identify the destination, and show you a snapshot with key facts about that destination, along with connections into relevant apps and services, like AirBnB, TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet, and others. You get all this information without ever having to leave the app. We welcome developers to leverage this technology in new ways to delight users, and look forward to a future where the best product experiences are made better with Bing.
