Bing is receiving an exciting update – the ability to save search results so that you can look them up later, on any of your devices. Microsoft isn’t the first one to think of something like this – but this might be the simplest implementation of it, yet.
The video above pretty much explains everything that the feature has to offer; you can search for anything – be it recipes or products for shopping – and tap on the favorite button to save individual results.
Once it is saved, you can visit the www.bing.com/saves and access all of the collected items. Although Microsoft has given plenty of examples to use this feature, here’s a silly one from us: GIFs.
There’s plenty of times – during a chat – you would want to react with a GIF. Trouble comes in finding the GIF you want – it’s too slow; if you have the GIF saved as a result, however, you just need to visit the page and copy the link.
It’s a silly use-case, but it could be useful for some. The feature works with all types of results as well – images, shopping, or the general web.
Microsoft Edge has a similar feature, allowing users to save a reading list across Windows 10 devices – but that’s the problem, as it is only available on Windows 10 devices.
Bing has the potential to reach a wider audience, as it is available not only on Windows but other platforms as well – including Android.
While the feature has started rolling out to users in most markets – the Bing team does mention that this feature might not be available in all markets yet. Hopefully, the rollout will gain some pace soon enough.
