Bing Search has been bringing in innovative features lately and the latest one is the save search option. While it is indeed helpful to have the world at your tips with the Internet the ability to save/bookmark videos and other stuff for future usage is something that will go a long way in helping users.
Bing has done exactly that with its ‘My Saves’ search feature that will allow you to store video, images and shopping searches that you found on Bing and later let you view the same on a PC or Mobile device provided that you are logged on to the same account.
Bing My Save feature
Microsoft demoed the feature by taking the instance of a typical search that one would make on Thanksgiving holiday, ‘best ways to cook a turkey’ and while this turns up a ton of videos that you see.
By using My Saves searching feature you can actually hover on the video result and click ‘Save.’ The feature records your exact location and preference in the search and lets you head over to the same without the need to navigate further. All the items are archived in the ‘My Saves’ which is somewhat similar to the My Documents folder in Windows.
The same feature is extrapolated for image search if you like a certain image while searching for your exotic holiday destination, simply hover on it and save. Then you can go to the image source and also check the other details of the article. This is pretty as compared to opening up an image in a new tab or even Bookmarking the entire website.
The shopping results are yet another innovative feature that is mention worthy. So here is what Bing does, the search page displays a ‘See shopping results’ page and clicking on this will filter your results to the images of the products across the search and also lets you save the same. Once your decision is made feel free to delete the saved items.
Bing is coming up with new features regularly and hopefully, this new My Search feature will help the search engine combat with the likes of Google web search engine.
