Microsoft earlier in the week announced that it is pushing out some major new features to its Bing search engine. Bing search is currently termed as the next best alternative to Google Search.

The Redmond Giant announced that it is working on bringing advanced data and insights features when users are looking for hotel information. This option lets users to be able to book hotels with the best matched option.

The feature allows users to be able to go through several key details like price, location and more in helping them finding the cheapest of hotels and rooms according to the budget.

The new update also offers option to view the hotel rates over a period of time and compare prices of several other hotels before opting for the best priced hotel.

Some other improvements which Microsoft is pushing out to its Bing Search engine is allowing users to search for service providers based on specific location and also get a quote and information of up to 10 providers.

There are also improvements made to the deals and coupons that are being offered. The search provides users with the deals across first and third party listings apart from providing detailed insights into the “expiring soon” deals.

Microsoft states: “Bing now aggregates deals across first- and third-party listings then displays them when you search for retailers or coupons. We surface relevant insights like ‘expiring soon’, whether the offers are online or in-store only, and more.”

Many of the features which have been added are market specific and have been mostly aimed at the US market. These feature rely on services which are regularly provided to users in US markets.

Microsoft is currently pushing out the Home services price range feature to all platforms but other features are desktop specific. We hope that Microsoft will release the new Bing Search features across the globe sooner than later.
