Microsoft Announces New Modern Interface For Bing

Bing New

Along with the announcement about new logo, Microsoft also announced a new modern interface for the Bing search experience. Microsoft redesigned Bing.com with a beautiful new, modern design focused on simplicity, speed and visual appeal to give people a better search experience regardless of the device customers will be using.

With this release we’ve created a modern Bing.com experience – one that is faster, cleaner and more visually appealing. We believe that search can be beautiful as well as functional and efficient. With that as our goal, we evaluated fonts, spacing, color, visual scan patterns, the search box and even the underlying code.

Bing New homepage

 

Last year, Bing introduced Snapshot and Sidebar to improve the search experience with factual information and human perspective. In their new design, they have combined these two sources of knowledge to provide people with all the supporting context they’ll need for any given query.

This combined region ranks the key information and actions we know about any an entity, while bringing in friends and expert opinions about that same topic. For example, consider a search for “Highway 1”. Bing knows there are many possible things you might be looking for. Our new design displays both the factual data about this beautiful route (length, date, related places), and also the human perspective whether they be status updates, photos, tweets, check-in’s or expert opinions.

There are several other new features like Page Zero, a new function in Bing that helps a user get an answer or take an action before they even see the first results page, a new surface area at the top of the page called “Pole Position” for results where Bing have high confidence on a user’s intent. When Bing knows that someone wants images of a celebrity, is looking for a specific fact or needs a detailed view of the weather in a particular city, Bing will provide a much larger answer beautifully integrated at the top of the page.
